The area around Michigan's Eastern UP isn't conducive to that type of fly fishing. I'm not into still or big water with a boat, so there isn't much for me here. I don't know much about the Algoma district around Sault, Ont. and was hoping someone could steer me towards some nice brookie (speck) rivers on the canadian side?
Thanks to all in advance...
I have heard the Root River in SSM, ON contains brookies. I have yet to catch any myself. Here's some pictures from one section in the late fall when I visited in search of steel (no luck in that respect either. Water had been very low however).
There is a book about fishing lake superior tribs that may contain some info for you with respect to larger rivers... Sorry about being a bit sparse, but I am always a bit over cautious with fishing location specifics on the internet.
