In general, the following species are found in the impoundments and river to Flat Rock: Northern Pike, Walleye, Tiger and Northern Muskie, Large and Smallmouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Bluegill, Hybrid Sunfish and Black Crappie. The river from Lake Erie to Belleville Dam receives fall and winter runs of Coho (most abundant), Chinook and Steelhead. Spring spawning runs of Walleye, Northern Pike and White Bass also contribute to the fishery.
The Huron is truly a diverse fishery. From fall run Salmon and Steelhead to summer Smallmouth and Muskie it provides the high-density population of southeast Michigan the chance to experience a wide variety of species in an unlikely urban environment.
