Michigan Brown Trout Festival

Friday, July 13, 2018
Sunday, July 22, 2018

Over the course of the 10-day festival anglers can enjoy several different fishing tournaments including the one-day Super Tournament, the Jack Daniels Ladies Classic, our Walleye Extravaganza, and more! But if you just want to spend a few days enjoying the great fishing Thunder Bay has to offer, we have daily prizes for the largest fish, and our tournament long leaderboard for Brown Trout, Walleye, Steelhead, Salmon, and Lake Trout.

Fishing isn’t the only thing the Brown Trout Festival has to offer though! Come visit us on any day, and you're sure to find something you'll love! We have daily and nightly events throughout the festival - Whether it's listening to the sounds of Michigan bands, striking up conversation with locals in our beer tent, taking your kids to the Family Fun Day, or watching the fish weigh-in, you'll be sure to have a great time!


Hosted at the Alpena Marina, 400 E Chisholm Street, Alpena MI 49707
