Fly Fishing Lake Superior's North Shore Steelhead

“He asked if I would be discreet about our destination. Not a problem. First, I was lost. Second, I understood that discretion is necessary because most of the north-shore rivers are small and can’t bear much pressure.” Unlike on U.S. shores, the northern edge of Lake Superior might boast as pure a strain of steelhead as anywhere in the North America.

    I fish the north shore streams of Lake Superior for Steelies, and you are correct, they get way too much fishing pressure the way it is. Most of these guys fishing them don’t know how to fish steelies and snag them most of the time. Lots of stress on fish and very frustrating / sad to see.
