          Do any of your guests fish off the beach shore? Do you know how the fishing is there? Thanks!

          I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
