    The Clinton River is a stream in the southeast of the U.S. state of Michigan.

    The main branch of the river rises in a series of small lakes west of Pontiac. The north branch and the middle branch rise in northern Macomb County and join the main branch in Clinton Charter Township, which was named after the river. The main branch flows 80 miles (128 km) from its headwaters to Lake St. Clair near Mount Clemens.

    OK...
    From I-94 eastbound, take the mt clemens exit (the one for Gibraltar tradse center). From the exit, turn right and start looking for the pulloff on the south side immediately.

    There should be a bridge as far as memory serves right by the pulloff. Fish under the bridge and you ought to limit out on channel cats before 2am.

    Not too big, not very healthy, but if it is the fight and not the meat you are after and you're stuck in the city, then this is as good a spot as any and you can fish it all night.


    You can also access it at Yates Cider mill at 23 and Dequindre as well as at Dodge Park in Sterling heights, riverside park onff van Dyke in SterlingHeights, or the headwaters at Stony Creek Metropark at 26 mile.

    Good luck

    They also plant 25000 steelhead at yates per year now so expect that to pick up quickly!!!
