About Platte River
The Platte has some great qualities, but maybe none better than the fall Coho Salmon run. It is one of the only rivers in the state that has a prolific, consistent run of the aggressive, acrobatic fish. The river begins out of a few small lakes Southwest of Traverse City, including Lake Ann. Because of this, the very upper portions are fairly warm during the summer months and not the best area for trout fishing. It isn’t until a number of miles downstream that groundwater cools the river to make it excellent trout habitat. As the river flows West toward Lake Michigan, it spills over a mostly gravel bottom at a pretty good clip past The State Hatchery and on toward the town of Honor. Some adventurous canoeists and kayakers put in at the U.S.31 Bridge and float down to Honor, but the river is fast, shallow, and dominated by heavy cover. Most of the river from the Hatchery until a few miles upstream of Honor is quite shallow with little holding water for the Salmon and Steelhead. It is home to a pretty good population of trout, especially small rainbows (future steelhead) that are excellent for teaching someone to fly fish. As the river gets closer to Honor and the upper end of Platte Lake, there are more deep holes that are home to larger trout and Salmon and Steelhead. Below Platte Lake, the river meanders slowly along over a mix of sand and gravel and is a very pleasant, leisurely paddle. The river below the lake is also a great place to fish Salmon and Steelhead when they make their spring and fall runs.
