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.
