HOME TO THE HURON

NATIONAL FOREST

FISHING

The Great Lakes offer one of the most important fishing resources in North America, and Lake Huron is easily accessible in Harrisville. Smallmouth bass, yellow perch and walleye often can be caught fairly close to shore, and fishing for salmon and steelhead can be very productive in offshore areas. You can find fishing access in Harrisville State Park and Harbor Park, including boat launching facilities and docks.

 

There are a large number of smaller inland lakes that offer public access. These lakes include:

  • Brownie, Lincoln

  • Jewel, Lincoln

  • Hubbard, Hubbard Lake

  • Long Lake, Alpena

  • Grand Lake, Alpena

If you are unfamiliar with fishing in the region, a number of guides and charter services operate in and around Harrisville, including Beyer's Charter Service (beyerscharterservice.com) and Bluebird Charters (bluebirdcharters.com).
