    Lake Details


    What you need to know about fishing Detroit River

    The Detroit River flows for more than 25 miles between Lake St Clair and Lake Erie of the Great Lakes and sits on the shore of Detroit to create a border between the United States and Canada. The River holds trophy walleye, catfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, smallmouth bass, white bass, muskie and perch. The Detroit River is deep and the current is rapid so it’s important to fish with heavy jigs that are designed for heavy current like the 3/8 oz B Fish N H2O jigs or the heavier Lance Valentine line of Thump Jigs designed specifically for the Detroit River. These jigs can be tipped with a live minnow, plastic worm, or swimbait and should be presented using a vertical jigging motion. Walleye can be caught throughout the year while muskie are commonly targeted in the fall.
