Sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts find a variety of activities in the area. Ice break up in the spring is accompanied by smelt dipping and perch fishing. Northern pike are readily caught (May 15 is opening day) in the shallows and smallmouth bass fishing is excellent (opens Saturday prior to Memorial Day). The annual May fly hatch attracts schools of herring in late June/early July and splake are also taken in good numbers; they are a great fighting fish.
Brook trout are found in local creeks and streams and the Carp River is famous for steelhead. Salmon find their way into the Les Cheneaux channels by early September; many nice fish are taken not far from LCL.
