Fishing Lake Superior

Attention anglers: Lake trout regulations on Lake Superior have changed. Effective Aug. 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m., the WI-2 lake trout season in the Apostle Islands region will be closed. See the lake trout harvest page for more information. These regulations may be subject to change so check back regularly.

Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world. In fact, it's so large that it could hold the water from all of the other Great Lakes, along with three more Lake Eries! That's a lot of water. And with all that water - comes good fishing. Here are some resources to help you get started.
