Cool The UP?

Hello there,

I am trying to put together a trip for later this fall. We will be staying in Northern Wisconsin. Looking at Fishig the Boise Brule in the Land of Cheese, but I am wondering what the great state of MIchigan has to offer on the south shore of Superior? My friend thinks the Black River has steelhead in it. But I am wondering if someone here has some better intel?

I know it is taboo to post on the waters of the UP on the Great Lakes specific forum I am a member of. But I am wondering if I could get just a little information to let me know if it is worth the venture. If you are worried about the secret getting out please PM me. I am not asking for the directions to your honey hole, just seeing what water is fishable for steelies.

Thank you in advance,

FlatLander

I know nothing of the UP but come back from Ak to fish the Brule every fall and visit family. If you get any insight on the UP please send me a pm.

pm sent to you; it depends pretty specifically on the days of your visit.

What I lack in skill --- I make up for with enthusiasm.

I'm born and raised in Marquette and have wet a line in each and every one of those rivers. It's a pretty good list of what swims in those rivers, but keep in mind that traditional fall/spring runs can be pretty short lived in the Superior watershed due to high gradient rivers. If you're ever coming up this way let me know and I can usually get pretty up to date info.

Flatlander.....I'm still trying to dig up more info for your trip as well. Keep in touch.
