|Finally, and not
least by any means, the St. Mary’s River has long been the final destination
of a variety of recreational fishermen.
In 1999 under the direction of the LHTC, an International access creel
of the St. Mary’s river was conducted.
The magnitude of the existing fishery was reported and a basis for
future assessment of the river is being formulated. Key species targetted in this system include the yellow perch,
lake herring, lake whitefish, and to a lesser degree walleye, chinook salmon
and northern pike.
