Les Cheneaux Landing invites you to plan a family or fishing vacation in the heart of Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula. The area offers a blend of seasonal activities to satisfy any taste or budget.
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 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.
Fishing or island tour charters are available in the area: For more information, contact: Les Cheneaux Islands Water Tours & Charter Service with Captain Norm, www.fishingwithnorm.com.
The many bays are a natural sanctuary for geese and ducks in the fall. You could fish and hunt at the same time! Large tracts of state and federal land hold plenty of grouse and woodcock, plus the fall colors are spectacular.
The area is great for deer hunting. Bow hunters find plenty of room and light hunting pressure. The firearm deer season in the Cedarville/Hessel area is a tradition enjoyed by many.
The Eastern UP offers something for everyone in your family to enjoy. Some noteworthy day trips include: Mackinac Island, Tahquamenon Falls, the Soo Locks and Drummond Island.
