This huge bass population that occupies the shallower, warmer waters of the Bay is the focus of attention beginning in mid-May and attracts anglers from throughout the Midwest.

Walleye, northern pike, a unique muskie fishery capable of producing record fish, yellow perch, brown trout, chinook salmon, and coho salmon are excellent fisheries on a seasonal basis.
