Heading to Canada for a lake fishing trip this summer and wondering if there are any streams in far NW Wisconsin that would be suitable for a quick (1-2 hours) stop and fish.

My son and I will be heading to International Falls where we will spend the night before entering Canada and wouldn't mind a break along the way.

Was thinking along the Hwy 53 corridor. Needs to be right off of there – won't have time for the Brule or going more than a few miles off of 53.

Anyone fish up there? Any stream worth the time?

Was thinking of looking in Minnesota, but why pay for the 24 hour licenses when I have never fished below Superior in Wisconsin?


EDIT: Actually the Brule headwaters are much closer to 53 than I realized.

Boise Brule - this would be my first stop up there. Easy access points and lots of good fishing.

Highway 29 intersects highway 53. Take highway 29 west 15 minutes to 20th street and you'll be at a very nice stretch of Elk Creek. Hopefully the link below works.

My friend and I fished Elk Creek quite a bit back in college. It's a really good fishery. Have a good time in Canada, I'll be up at Lac Seul in June fly fishing for northern pike.

No worries. As I edited, it's actually close to 53.

Of course I don't have sufficient time, but maybe a little intro is in order.

Thanks!

I'll look into Elk also. Thanks.

We're going to Eagle Lake, so not too far from where you're going.

About 6 or 7 of my 18yo's buddies and their dads who are all my friends to one degree or another. Should be fun.
