This quite remote, one mile stretch of the Ontonagon River (East Branch in Houghton County) produces consistent catches of beautiful Rainbow Trout, and to a lesser extent, Brook Trout. The mosquitoes have finally subsided enough to allow for mindful concentration on short and accurate placement of the fly or bait. This is a small, but fast stream with a lot of obstacles to casting, including tag alder, downed trees, and forest canopy that hugs the river. I am always amazed at how patient I can be with all of the snags and re-tying that goes into fishing in this habitat, when in other aspects of my life, patience is not a virtue. This is the time of the year to fill the freezer downstairs to get through the long seven months of winter. Eric and I will both take a deer with the crossbow in October, to add to the winter food supply.
