Salt Creek Public Fishing Area

This 75-acre public fishing area provides access to Salt Creek, where you’ll find excellent small-stream trout and salmon fishing as fish leave Lake Michigan and head upstream on seasonal spawning runs. Salt Creek has notable runs of Skamania steelhead and is popular among fly anglers. For non-anglers, the site offers several narrow trails that follow Salt Creek’s meanderings through a scenic riparian bottomland. Pick up an Indiana Dunes Fishing Guide for additional details about fishing throughout the region.
