Lake Huron is the second largest of America's Great Lakes and the third largest of the lakes by volume, with 850 cubic miles of water. Lake Huron is hydrologically inseparable from Lake Michigan, joined by the wide Straits of Mackinac, thus Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and Lake Michigan, can be considered one huge lake.
Lake Huron has the longest shoreline of the Great Lakes, extending 3,827 miles, counting the shorelines of its 30,000 islands. It is characterized by shallow, sandy beaches and the rocky shores of Georgian Bay. 
The lake measures 206 miles across and 183 miles from north to south, maximum depth is 750 feet (229m), average depth is 195 feet (59m) and a large number of wrecks lie within recreational diving depths. Lake Huron's drainage area, which covers parts of Michigan and Ontario, is relatively large compared to the other Great Lakes.
The Saginaw River basin is intensively farmed and contains the Flint and Saginaw-Bay City metropolitan areas.

Lake Huron's waters are cold, clear and deep, the perfect environment for Salmon to thrive. The salmon fishery is spectacular. Chinook salmon, coho and pink salmon are all abundant in Lake Huron. Trolling spoons and salmon plugs in areas with marked fish and nearby baitfish schools is the most common open water fishing tactic. The Lake is well structured, with countless, underwater reefs, sunken islands and drop offs. Navigation can be perilous at times, especially in the area of the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island, where hundreds of ship wrecks have been discovered, some dating back to the near century.

The Lake Huron basin is heavily forested, sparsely populated and scenically beautiful. Spring fishing is excellent, with thousands of young jack salmon caught off the many surrounding piers. Fishing with roe under a float is very effective this time of year.
One of the islands, Manitoulin, is the largest freshwater island in the world.
