About Lake St. Clair

The Canadian recreational boating/fishing industry pumps 10 billion dollars annually into our economy. We are proud to be a part of that economic driver and offer anglers the opportunity to compete on a world class bass hatchery.

Lake St Clair has a total surface area of about 430 square miles (1,100 km2) and is a shallow lake for its size making it excellent for bass fishing just about anywhere on the lake. Its average depth is about 11 feet (3.4m) and it has a maximum natural depth about 21.3 feet (6.5m). Lake St. Clair is considered the 2nd most popular sports fishing destination in all of the Great Lakes.

The tarry time (i.e. the time between entering and leaving) of the water in Lake St. Clair averages seven days, but can vary from as little as two to as many as thirty days, depending on the direction of the wind, water circulation patterns, and the amount of water that is flowing out of Lake Huron. This action keeps the lake fresh and clean for ideal breeding grounds for many species.
