The Pere Marquette river is the major contributor of natural reproducing salmon in Lake Michigan. Salmon are also planted at the Ludington State Park. The mature salmon return to the Ludington waters each summer prior to their spawning runs. Ludington is also known for the reefs and drop-offs near the port. This unique structure around the port of Ludington attracts bait fish and huge salmon, steelhead, lake trout and brown trout.
