This is the season for fine crappie and pike fishing on Hamlin Lake. Crappie, bluegill, and small mouth bass fishing are also excellent.
During the autumn steelhead and Salmon Runs, anglers line the banks of the Big Sable River which courses through the Ludington State Park. These fish jumping over the Hamlin Dam is a sight to see! This mile-long stretch from Hamlin Lake is a favorite as the catches are definitely worth writing home about.
Once the ice freezes, anglers venture out onto Hamlin Lake for some bluegill or walleye fishing.
January through March
