Northern Lake St. Clair Bouvier Bay ice “again” – 1st day of new ice forming – January 30, 2023.  Let’s hope for a long cold spell now so our winter activities may commence in full.  See below for access points for fishing, walking, and snowmobiles.  Nice calm day for initial freeze so will be a good surface for walking & skating!

WHERE TO PARK / HAVE ICE ACCESS?

Bouvier Bay on Northern Lake St. Clair is usually the first large area to freeze first.  Fishermen may park at:

1.  Fair Haven DNR Launch Ramp Parking Lot & you may drive onto the Ice there as well.

2.  The Raft Bar – Fair Haven on M29  in the right hand corner of this image above (when attendant is there will be fee FYI).

3.  Patrons of On the Rocks Smoke House may park on their large lot also if you come in for a meal or cocktails.

Fair Haven DNR Launch above is easy access to the ice activities.  The Raft Bar down the street has large “on shore” parking too for a small fee.

And the St. Clair River is ALSO a beautiful view to see the ice!  Worthy of a ride to Marine City & the City of St. Clair.  Late spring is especially beautiful as the ice begins breaking up on Lake Huron and starts its annual trek down the river in huge chunks.  Great to take the kids and see this spectacle!


City of St. Clair – The Voyageur is right on the river and the Anchor Pointe Bistro is across from the River in the Riverview Plaza.

Marine City restaurants right on the St. Clair River’s “Water Street” include Gar’s Lounge, Newport Pub, and Marine City Fish Company.
