The Manistique Lake system offers great fishing all year long. The Lakes provide a variety of cool water fish including: Muskie, Northern Pike, Walleye, large and small mouth Bass, Perch, Bluegill, Rock Bass, and Bullheads. The rivers and streams provide: Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Steelhead Trout.

The last Saturday in April brings the opening of Trout season, and Smelt runs. May 15th is the opening day for Walleye, which has been stocked in the lake since 2009 by the Portage Anglers Club.  From June to August, all species are available. September and October is when the Jumbo Pearch run. Ice forms in early December, and last through April; this creates optimal ice fishing conditions.

Big Manistique Lake is a 10,130-acre lake, Approximately 6.5 miles long and 4 miles wide, it is one of the largest lakes in the Upper Peninsula. The lake is relatively shallow, with it’s deepest point only 20 feet below the water surface. The average depth is 10 feet which makes it ideal for fishing and swimming alike.
