Grand Traverse Bay and lower Manistee River are home to some of the largest smallmouth anywhere.

Full Day of Guided Fishing (Smallmouth Bass): Lake Michigan offers a unique smallmouth fishery for some of the largest “smallies” in the country. Smallmouth bass  roam the shallow warming flats of Grand Traverse Bay in the late Spring and in sections of the lower Manistee River during the dog-days of Summer, and Streamside has the guides to take you to them.

Sight fishing for carp along Lake Michigan shoreline on Grand Traverse Bay is reminiscent of bonefishing in the Caribbean.

Half Day of Guided Fishing (Carp): One of the hot fisheries on Grand Traverse Bay is carp, and Streamside has the guides to help you find them. Each Spring, these enormous fish come up onto the shallow flats to spawn, feed on crayfish, and chase flies! We sight-fish these monsters either wading or floating for 4 hours.
