The Film: Trout Streams of Michigan, U.P. West

I've had a lot of very positive comments from people who have watched this film and found it entertaining and informative. I've also had some comments from locals who were not too happy about my exposing this area to a larger public audience. There is such a low human population in that area along with so many miles of quality trout streams flowing thru public forest land that I really believe the overal area is highly under utilized and their concern about increased pressure is over stated. I have plans of filming other portions of Michigan in the future. Stay tuned for updates.

Upper Black River, Michigan U.P WATCH Fishing the Upper Black River The upper Black River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is that section above or south of US Hwy 2. During the spring and fall the action is good for brook trout averaging 7 to 10 inches. A lot of public land and good access is available as it flows thru the Gogebic County Forest.

It contains stocked and wild brook trout as well as stocked brown trout. Most importantly it produces trophy brook trout that can exceed 20 inches. There is also a scenic by-way showcasing 5 major waterfalls that are worth seeing.
Brown trout from Cooks Run, MI UP West WATCH Fishing Cooks Run Cooks Run is a designated Blue Ribbon trout stream and a tributary to the South Branch Paint River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It runs thru the Ottawa National Forest and access is plentiful via Highway 2, Highway 16 and Basswood Road. It is one of the few spring creeks in the area and is primarily a brook trout fishery with an occasional brown trout.
Ford River, MI UP West WATCH Fishing the Fence River From the confluence of its East and West Branches down to the Michigamme Reservoir, the French River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula offers 12 miles of designated blue ribbon trout fishing. The main fish is the brook trout and they can reach up to 18 inches in this great stream. While the French River flows thru National Forest land there are only a couple confusing dirt roads giving access. The fishing pressure is fairly low for a stream of this quality.
Firesteel River, MI UP West WATCH Fishing the Firesteel River The Firesteel River is a slow, sandy tributary to Lake Superior. While brown and brook trout are present the main fish appear to be rainbow and young steelhead. It is an easy stream to wade and the action is good.
Ford River, MI UP West WATCH Fly Fishing the Ford River The Ford River is one of Michigan's Blue Ribbon trout streams. Located in the Western Upper Peninsula it is known to produce brook trout up to 18 inches. The access is good as it runs thru mostly state forest land with a gravel road near by.
Iron River, MI UP West WATCH Fishing the Iron River Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Iron River and its North Fork have a total of 12 miles of designated blue ribbon trout water. Most of the fish are brook trout. I spent a day fishing here and would agree with its blue ribbon status.
Iron River, MI UP West WATCH Fishing the Jumbo River The Jumbo River is a tributary to the East Branch Ontonagon River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Below Jumbo Falls it has residential brook trout mixed in with migrating trout and salmon. Above it is strictly wild brook trout. The East and West branches also offer some good fishing for brook trout.

The brook trout seems to be the most common but rainbow and brown trout are also reported to exist, and some are reported to get large. It also holds a couple scenic and popular waterfalls, particularly Bond Falls.
Presque Isle River, MI UP West WATCH Fishing the Presque Isle River The Presque Isle River in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula is 42 miles long and much of that is inhabited by brook trout. For a stream of its length it gets little pressure. Most of the river runs thru national forest land and there are logging roads in the vicinity but you may have to hike and bush wack a ways to get to the water. Unlike the nearby Black River it is not known for producing trophy fish.
