everything is running with the rain, over here by us if you haven't left yet the roselawn, 2 mile and cisco branch of the ontonagon are great! Stop by!

Lots of rain,wild rivers, no fish!! Turned out to be a good scouting trip! Lots of white blossoms on the thimbleberrys,a few raspberries and lots of green blueberries ! had some good ruttabega pastys! stopped at bond falls,no fish biting there as there was a pile driver chasing the fish to lake superior! ended up going to the mouth of the big huron river,silver river and rowland lake east of L'anse . no fish but lots of otv's enjoying the many remote trails and roads.stayed one night at best western right on the bay in baraga and camped out next night and got a wet azzz but still lots of fun! went by the running bear resort right during a downpour and will stop next time !will definatly try closer to the headwaters and rivers creeks mentioned Thanks, UBEE

ubee if you take US 2 east of 64 you will pass the stagecoach rd (co rd. 525) keep going and you will come to the co rd 527 goes north kakabika falls is on it and turns into sleepy hollow rd up here at the other end. You will need to stop by or PM me for more details on the good spots....;)

Nice pic !! looks like Specs might live there! Maybe I might load up the new Yammi and head up there for a break-in ride as there are very few
places to ride in Vilas county ! will stop if I make it up that way! Blueberries are nice big and ripe here ! Thanks! Ubee
