From brawny Chinook salmon to dazzling native brook trout
The Porcupine Mountains offer anglers an incredible variety of fishing opportunities. From the biggest of the Great Lakes to tiny wilderness brooks, the waters of the Porcupine Mountains teem with fish.
Lake Superior and its tributaries offer outstanding fishing. Salmon, lake trout and whitefish provide exciting action for anglers. Inland lakes offer fishing for perch, walleye, smallmouth bass and northern pike. And throughout the area, countless woodland streams offer great fishing for native brook trout.
In the Porcupine Mountains, you can jig deep water reefs for trophy-sized lake trout in the morning and then fly fish for dazzling brookies on a tiny forest stream in the afternoon—it’s a range of fishing options you’ll find nowhere else.
During the winter, ice fishing is a popular activity on area lakes. Whitefish, lake trout, perch, walleye and pike are the top targets for winter anglers.
