Summary

What you need to know about fishing Lake Macatawa

Lake Macatawa is a body of water that is connected with Lake Michigan and the City of Holland, Michigan sits on its shore. Lake Macatawa has lower water clarity than many expect. This is something that the state of Michigan has tried to fix, however it remains a struggle. There are two prominent boat ramps on this lake, one on the west side and one on the east side. Anglers should expect to target Crappie, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and Perch.
