Coastal Lake Huron Watersheds

In addition to Northeast Michigan’s larger watersheds that drain to Lake Huron, such as the Thunder Bay and Au Sable river watersheds, are a collection of smaller coastal watersheds. These smaller river systems provide important spawning habitat for migratory fish including brook trout, brown trout, suckers, salmon and steelhead. Most of these streams also support resident fish populations. While development pressure is relatively low along Northeast Michigan’s Lake Huron coast, road/stream crossings abound and undersized culverts often fragment aquatic habitat. The Coastal Lake Huron Watersheds inventory data serves as a tool for resource agencies, nonprofit conservation organizations, road commissions and members of the public working toward stream restoration.

Funding to complete this inventory was provided by the Great Lakes Fishery Trust.
