Cast a Line



Healthy populations of trout, walleye, salmon, and steelhead make this area an angler’s paradise.


Looking for different ways to wet your line? On your own, you can fish from shore at Willow Park, Wade’s Bayou or on the jetty, or motor out to the Kalamazoo River. Bring your own boat and gear, or rent it here, and see what’s biting.

For bigger sportfishing expeditions in Lake Michigan, Saugatuck Charter FishingBest Chance Too Charters and Big Lake Outfitters offer half-day and full-day charters.


Once you’ve reeled in your catch, Spectator’s Sports Bar & Grill’s restaurant will cook your fish if you bring it in.


Looking for even bigger bragging rights? Catch the big one and earn some valuable prizes during our Big Lake Classic Fishing Tournament held each summer annually.
