What anglers said about fishing in Lake St. Clair

Just enjoy yourself. Remember that it is called fishing, not catching. Being out on the water is just the stress relief you need to reset.

We caught 3 walleye and a multitude of perches - small - so probably go twice to increase chances of catching a sizeable one. Was a pretty good day ln the water anyway - with a very enjoyable Eric. Thanks,

Make sure you dress for the weather. The river is wide and the wind will certainly be a factor for how cold it is going to be on the water. Nothing worse than getting into the fish and having a bad day because you are under dressed. You can always take some clothes off. I recommend that you go with someone that has experience with fishing the river for your first trip.

You can expect to catch bigger fish in April but the number of fish caught might be better in late or May. The weather conditions and water temperatures can make fishing in early April at times a bit difficult. We had to reschedule a trip as a result of bad weather.

If you have never been on Lake St. Clair, prepare for having a great time. Bring lots of sun screen a hat and some cold drinks. What you expect to happen can become a trip of a lifetime and the possibilities are always there to catch that dream fish! I grew up on Lake St. Clair and loved it and it is one the best places to fish in the world.

Hire a guide if your new to the Detroit walleye fishery as the crowds can be heavy.

It was a little slow after all the rains and water was cold for this time of year, but overall it was good. Dress in layers. Bring gloves. It's chilly.
