In 1884 the first German Brown Trout to be introduced to North America was in the Pere Marquette River.
In 1885 the McCloud strain of Rainbow Trout were planted in the Pere Marquette River. Two years later, In 1887, Steelhead started showing up as a result of the 1885 planting because no one knew they were in the mix. Each year the decedents of those Steelhead migrate up the river from mid October through the beginning of May and then back out to Lake Michigan only to return again each year.
In 1964 the Coho or Silver Salmon were planted in the river. Coho migrate up the river mid-October through December.
In 1967 the Chinook or King Salmon were planted in the river. Kings migrate up the river mid-August through mid-October.
Because the river is a migratory fishery it’s open 365 days per year
