Fishing Tips

You can find excellent fishing in the other lakes and you might just stumble upon an area that nobody knows about.  That is what’s great about the Iron River area.  There are so many places to fish.  With Lake Superior only 17 miles north of Iron River, you have the option of fishing the lake and its tributaries.  The area rivers provide some excellent fishing during the spawning runs.  Brule River offers an excellent steelhead run through the month of April and Flag River also heats up for steelhead around the second week of April.  Take a look at our Iron River, WI Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
