Lake Superior by: Tanya Rothe

 

Lake Superior is known as the largest freshwater lake in the entire world. People come from all around to take advantage of the great fishing opportunities. Lake Superior is filled with more than 60 breeds of fish including: bloater, trout, burbot, carp, salmon, drum, herring, and many more. One interesting fact about Lake Superior is that it holds about 10 percent of the Earth's fresh water. Did you know that there are over 300 rivers and streams that flow into Lake Superior? One benefit that comes with the lake's many attractions is that it is so clear that you can see down as far as 27 feet.

The lake is about 1.1 billion years old. This dates back to when the glaciers were present in the area. Back in the 1600's, some European settlers claimed that they seen 9 feet long sturgeons and 7 feet long northern pike. Could you imagine catching a fish this big from one of the Great Lakes like Lake Michigan or Lake Superior?
