The Lakes provide a variety of cool water fish which include: Muskie up to 40 lbs., Northern Pike, Walleye, Large and Small mouth Bass, Perch, Bluegill, Sunfish, Rock Bass, and Bullheads. The rivers and streams provide Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Steelhead Trout, plus great smelt runs in the spring. Special regulations apply - see DNR Fishing Guide for details. Most of the area lake waters are 30 ft. or less, so temperatures warm early and are very pleasant for swimming, water skiing and other activities.
Curtis, MI also offers some of the best and most varied hunting in the state. We have 1000's of acres of State, Federal and Corporate lands open to the hunter.

Winter activities in Curtis MI revolve around our lakes and our trails. The Curtis Area Chamber of Commerce grooms and maintains 140 miles of snowmobile trails each year. They connect to a myriad of trails throughout the State of Michigan that total over 2,500 miles. “SnowGoer Magazine voted the Upper Peninsula the Best Overall Snowmobiling Area, Most Challenging, Most Scenic, and Best Powder Riding in the United States!”
Ice forms in early December and provides a great source for cold weather sports activities (such as icefishing) from late December until spring break in mid April. The last Saturday in April brings the opening of Trout season and the Smelt runs.
Snow shoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, ice-skating, and dog sledding are just some of the other great activities we have here during the winter months. We also have many winter events so be sure to check out our Calendar of Events link to the Chamber.
