Steelhead Fishing at Port Huron

This Morning I got up at 5 am and drove over to to go fishing with my neighbor.  It was about 45 degrees this morning when we left the house to head north about 45 min.  We had breakfast at Tim Horton’s right off 94 at the Blue Water Bridge crossing into Canada.


We checked out a spot on the north side of the Black River which looked pretty good.  We decided to drive around to the south side of the Black River and decided to set up and fish outside of the .  Nice place, there is a café in the building, restrooms, and there was a farmers market there on the south side of the building.  When we got there, we were one of three cars in the parking lot but when we left there was about 4 or 5 dozen cars in the lot.  But we were the only ones fishing there.

We spent the first part of the morning fishing at the the mouth of the Black River looking across into , Ontario Canada.  There was a pretty strong wind coming down the St. Clair River from Lake Huron and after a few hours we decided to move up the Black River a bit to fish on part of any old railroad bridge that had a deck and benches on it.  It was much better out of the wind, but still no bites.

When we decided pack it in for the day, we drove around to the other side of the Black River and talked to some local fishermen that were not having any luck either.  However, based on the conversation…. we were in the right spot!
