An early spring visit to Proud Lake Recreation Area

Proud Lake Anglers




Huron River Trout

The DNR stocks the Huron River with Trout (Brown and Rainbow) in late March/early April and at the Proud Lake Recreation Area (3500 Wixom Rd, Commerce Twp, MI) the fishermen soon show up in droves.  From April 1 through April 25, catch and release rules apply.  After April 25, all baits are allowed and anglers may keep up to 3 trout over 8 inches in length.  Although you sometimes find these fish in the Milford Mill Pond later in the year, I don’t think many of them make it past May....

One thing that was striking during this visit was the vast number of dead or dying trees.  The trees in my own yard are not doing great so maybe I notice sick/dying trees more than I used to.  There were whole stands of trees that appear to be in really bad shape.  It’s pretty distressing....

There looks to be a lot of fish in your Proud Lake Recreation Area for the fishermen to have fun fishing. Those trees do look in bad shape, your winter might have badly affected them. Here in RI we have some wooded areas with dead or sick trees, too. Our past winter was severe with 4 major blizzards.
