Short take: Famous steelhead, salmon, and brown trout river. Draining a National Forest of the same name, the Pere Marquette wears three faces. From September to March, steelhead run up into the river from its mouth at Ludington, a small town a little more than halfway up Lake Michigan’s eastern shore. Chinook enter the system in August and continue into October. Browns and rainbows, with the former predominating, are the mainstays of the river which author Bob Linsenman divides into three sections. Species: Brown, rainbow, steelhead, salmon. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
