About Lake St. Clair

Lake St. Clair is part of the Great Lakes system, and along with the St. Clair River and Detroit River, it connects Lake Huron with Lake Erie. It has a total surface area of about 430 square miles and average depth of 11 ft. and max depth of 23 ft. These fairly shallow depths allow for some of the best fresh water fly fishing in all the U.S. Known as one of the best lakes in the country for musky and smallmouth bass, it also fishes well for walleye, pike, largemouth bass, sturgeon, white bass, carp, and panfish.
