Local Radar

Lake St. Clair is a fresh water lake that is surrounded by Michigan and Ontario, Canada.  The lake is located about 6 miles north of Detroit.  We have 430 square miles of water area.  It is 26 miles from the north to the south, and about 24 miles from east to west.  We are connected to Lake Huron via the St. Clair River, and then flows to Lake Erie via the Detroit River.  The St. Clair River is 39 miles long and flows into the largest freshwater delta in the U.S., which is called the “The Flats.”

The lake and rivers, along with the delta of the North, South, and Middle Channels are some of the greatest bass, muskie, sturgeon, and walleye fishing in the world!  Call early for reservations…rooms fill up fast!

Michigan Law Changes

The D.N.R. has now implemented a new Muskie tag that is needed to keep a Muskie. Most practice catch and release but we may encounter a Muskie that dies or we may have it in the live well and they could say that it was in our possession. So the thing to do is obtain a Muskie tag, which are free when you purchase your Michigan licenses. It is also necessary to have both the license and tag in your possession on all fishing trips!

CANADA BOATING – Are there special rules if I cross over onto Lake St. Clair’s Canadian waters?  Yes!  Click here for complete details.
