any northern wisco spey guys?

Hey guys,

I'm getting into spey rods and steelhead at the same time. I live in southern mn and I frequent the north shore quite often and I'm in search of some 2 handed water to fish. There's not a hole lot in mn but Ive heard the south shore has some. So my question is where is there some water that I can fish with my spey? I like swinging streamers, what flies do most of you use, I'm guessing scandi lines will be fine? I'm looking to head out there this spring so I'm trying to do my homework to improve my odds a little. I'm not looking to steal your honeyhoe, just general areas, if you would rather not post this info for the masses feel free to send me a pm.

Brule is your best in N. WI for swinging two handed....
Scandi/polyleaders are fine, I use a mix of scandi and short skagit lines. Typical flies will work...from classic wets, to intruders and big leeches. I don't use anything super huge...
Even on the brule..anything over 12' gets a bit cumbersome in a lot of places.

If you really want to use a longer rod in WI....the Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Oconto are all bigger rivers that see lake run fish on the Lake MI side.
