The Great Lakes Sport Fishing News is owned and operated by The Michigan Steelhead and Salmon Fishermen’s Association.  More than forty five years ago, The Michigan Steelhead and Salmon Fishermen’s Association began publishing a magazine called the “Guide to Great lakes Sport Fishing”.  Five years later the magazine became a monthly periodical called “The Great Lakes Steelheader”.  Today the newspaper is called “The Great Lakes Sport Fishing News”.

The paper has no paid writers and has a grass roots style.  Its writers are the everyday fishermen who share their techniques and fishing adventures.  GLSFN has become well renowned for it’s January Special Edition or “Show Edition” that is seen at all the spring expos and sport fishing shows throughout the Great Lakes.

Information in the paper covers the entire Great Lakes Basin region from Minnesota to New York including all five of the Great Lakes and its tributary streams.  Chapter members receive the paper as part of their membership. The only way to receive the paper is to join the Michigan Steelhead and Salmon Fishermen’s Association.  The information covers everything from river fishing, big lake fishing to inland lake fishing. The paper also offers a direct route to all the new products and techniques on the market through our advertisers.
