The Au Sable River lies just to the south of Lewiston, extending from its headwaters near Grayling to Lake Huron in the town of Oscoda. This is a perfect river for both canoeing and fishing. Canoe liveries can be found in Grayling, Parmalee and Mio. A dam in Mio creates a few miles of wider, deeper water, with picturesque shoreline views. Five separate sections of the Au Sable tributary system have been designated as Blue Ribbon Trout Streams by the Michigan DNR, totaling 79 miles of river habitat. The Au Sable is noted as one of the best brown trout habitats in the state.

The Thunder Bay River headwaters lie just to the north of Lewiston, near McCormick Lake. It flows though the small towns of Atlanta and Hillman before emptying into Lake Huron in downtown Alpena. Many of its upper tributaries, such as Hunt Creek and Gilchrist Creek provide good trout fishing. Canoeing is possible starting from Atlanta or Hillman, however this is a faster, shallower river than the Au Sable.
