About Us

Battle Creek Steelheaders is one of 15 chapters affiliated with the Michigan Steelhead & Salmon Fisherman's Association.

A group of local and SW Michigan guys and gals who enjoy the camaraderie of sports fishing on Michigan’s Great Lakes and rivers. Don’t let the name of our club mislead you, in addition to a strong quest for steelhead, club events include the reeling in of salmon, brown trout, lake trout, walleye, and pan fish.

These activities take in people of all age groups with a goal to introduce youngsters to the rewards offered by the great outdoors that surrounds us all.
