Ausable River Salmon


Visitors: 123

Many people list salmon angling at the top of their must do chart. If you do, Ausable River salmon angling is definitely worth your time.

While many people may think that you can't find good salmon angling outside of Alaska or British Columbia – this is not true. Many states in the United States offer salmon angling, and Michigan is one of the best in this regard. Angling is a great experience in the Midwest, and Michigan's Lake Huron is a perfect spot for people looking to find walleye and other northern climate fish. Another great spot here is the Ausable River, salmon angling here can be very rewarding when you choose this area for your angling trip.

The Ausable River, along with the nearby Betsie River, have many salmon that migrate to their waters from Lake Michigan. Both Chinook salmon and king salmon are prevalent here, with August through November seeming to be a prime time to catch these fish on their spawning runs up these rivers. Ausable River salmon angling can be a challenge, due to the fact that these fish can easily be spooked and don't always go for the same lures, but true sport fishermen will enjoy the challenge that these fish pose.

While choosing to fish in this part of Michigan, you'll definitely need a place to stay. Many cabins and small motels and lodges offer rustic amenities to outdoors people who are on a angling trip. The Ausable River Valley holds towns that have many different spots for lodgings, with cities like East Tawas offering campgrounds, cottages, cabins and resorts. The Timberlane Resort, located in East Tawas near Lake Huron, this site offers you the opportunity to not only do some Ausable River salmon angling, but to also fish for other species in Lake Huron.

Ausable River also offers other scenic and historic things to see and do, for those times when you need a break from angling. Here, the Tawas Point and Sturgeon Point lighthouses, both built in the 1800's, offer some beautiful scenery. Also located here are many places in which to see varied wildlife native to the area. Angling in this part of Michigan can be a great family vacation as well, because of the different activities available to suit everyone's tastes.

Ausable River salmon angling offers the challenge and reward that many fishermen crave. Remember, a angling license is needed if you choose to fish here, even if you're a non-resident (as long as you're over 17), and they can be purchased either annually or for just 24 hours. You will need an unrestricted license if you are angling for salmon.
