The Lincoln River Watershed

The Lincoln River is a 7.8 mile-long largely cold-water streams and river with mainly sandy substrate within Mason County, Michigan. The Lincoln River is a popular fishing stream. The North Branch Lincoln River flows together with the South Branch Lincoln River in Victory Township about five miles northeast of Ludington where it continues westward into Lake Michigan. The watershed is a mixture of forested and agricultural land with some residential use. Water quality is generally good and healthy, however, agricultural land use and eroding road-stream crossings have impacted this to an extent. Of the six lakes within the watershed, three are mesotrophic and the other half are considered eutrophic.
