WHC Fishing Fleet

Wilmette Harbor is home to several avid fishermen and the Wilmette fishing fleet. Wilmette is ideally situated in some of the best fishing locations this side of Lake MIchigan. On any given day the fleet will return with catches of Coho Salmon, King Salmon, Brown Trout, Steelhead Trout, and Lake Trout. The Wilmette area is home to the WR2 and R4 buoys, Julian’s Reef and Gumby’s Reef marking underwater reefs that act as fish magnets. Fisherman from Chicago and Waukegan make their way to these hotspots which are just minutes away from the Wilmette Harbor.
