U.P. Streams And Rivers

Schoolcraft County :

Fox River
Seney, MI. Brook Trout. The Fox River rises from a semi-open marsh draining the Deadman Lake in eastern Alger County about 10 miles southwest of Grand Maris. It flows in a southeasterly direction for 35 miles mostly in Schoolcraft County until it empties into the Manistique River near the village of Germfask. The Fox River Basin is about 10 miles wide and 26 miles long. An excellent brook Trout Stream it is widely accepted that this is the river Ernest Hemingway fished when he wrote the Nick Adams stories and not the Big Two-Hearted. No one knows for sure but they are both excellent Brook Trout streams. The Fox and its east Branch have been included in Michigan's Natural Rivers Program. In addition, 18 miles of the Main Stream above Seney and 15 miles of the East Branch from M-77 to the Luce County line have beeen designated Michigan Blue Ribbon Trout streams. It is still possible to catch the 2 or 3 pound Brookie here although most are in the 10-11 inch range. It ! is a beautiful pristene trout stream largely unchanged since the days of Hemingway's visit. It is not an easy stream to flyfish or canoe. But, those with some skills at both pursuits will be amply rewarded. Lodging. Seney, Mi. Motels. Guides and Canoe Livery and Camprgound.

Manistique River
Manistique, Mi. (Rivermouth) Germfast, Mi. (Headwaters) Steelhead. Chinook Salmon.Brook Trout. Brook Trout fishing is good in the Upper Portion of the Manistique River just south of the confluence of the Main Branch and East Branch of the Fox. This is the beginning of the Manistique. From this point it twists and turns its way southwesterly some 50 miles adding several tributaries along the way and emptying into Lake Michigan at Manistique. The upper river is basically warm water and does not hold many trout. Below the Upper Dam in the city of Manistique there is a long flume which contains rapids and broken rocks and is wadeable. This area, of course, is where you'll find the Steelhead and Chinooks during their spawning runs. Other warm water species of fish are also very plentiful here. Motels in area.
