fishing tips

      The Portage Chain-of-Lakes are part of the Huron River watershed and are located in Washtenaw County and Livingston County in Michigan. They consist of the following lakes; Big Portage, Little Portage, Base Line, Zukey, Strawberry, Whitewood, Gallagher, Ore and Tamarack. The lakes are connected by no-wake canals. The largest lake in the system is Big Portage (680 acres / 2.8 km2) with the deepest point at 84 feet (26m). Strawberry Lake is second largest at 257 acres (1.04 km2) with deepest point of 64 feet (20m). All the lakes offer good fishing for walleye, bass, northern pike, yellow perch, crappie and bluegill. Fishing for bluegills is good all year with the bait of choice being crickets under a float. River mouth and canals are always good areas to target, with bonus crappie caught regularly. Bass fishing is also very good, although the average bass size is generally on the smaller size. Little Portage and Strawberry Lake can produce good numbers of pike. Casting or trolling bright coloured lures can be deadly, especially in the spring and fall.
