Fishing Vacation

Presque Isle

Renowned for its unique combination of warmwater and coldwater fishing, Presque Isle also boasts an array of family-oriented outdoor activities. The shallow waters of the bay harbor northern pike, walleyes, and muskies, plus smallmouth and largemouth bass. The colder depths of Lake Erie yield smallmouths, walleyes, salmon, and steelhead. Eleven beaches beckon to swimmers and surfers. Dozens of sites and shelters attract picnickers. Presque Isle State Park's trail network lures hikers and nature buffs. Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lies an hour to the west; Niagara Falls, an hour to the east. Thirty-two hotels, three cottage-rental facilities, and three campgrounds offer lodging for jet-set singles and budget-conscious families alike. 814-454-7191; www.eriepa.com.
