Is it too windy? Pick from several boat launch ramps in one of the channels, or launch into a bay where you will be protected from the wind. All size vessels can be utilized on Lake St. Clair’s waters for fishing and just enjoying the water.
Many species of fish are readily found around Lake St. Clair. In the spring, water temperatures rule where most anglers choose to launch. Because of the fast moving water coming down from Lake Huron into Lake St. Clair, the southern end of the Lake warms quicker than the northern end. However, while bass may be spawing in May by the “mile roads”, hungry Pike and other species are being sought in the Northern waters. Once May hits, the bass spawn begins as water temperatures rise into the 60’s.

Bass, muskie, pike, walleye, and more can be found around Lake St. Clair throughout the season. In a very hot year like 2016, early August water temperatures still range in the mid 70’s to the low 80’s in the shallows. Early morning and late evening fishing tend to be stronger for Muskie as the water warms, however, all species can be caught during the day.
