Be careful with the Steelhead Smolts, they are all over in the summer. The Lake Run browns start showing up in the river mid to end of July. There is a fly shop in the town of Brule and a couple in Superior and Duluth that can help with patterns. Alot of people fish mouse, frog patterns at night in the lakes section of the river, and I would think muddlers would be a standard also.

Browns can be located anywhere on the Brule.  My best luck for summer angling on the river has been for brookies though.  I like to throw hardware (small spinners) and such. Plenty of areas to fish, especially in the summer months because there is always a little less traffic as far as fishermen.  Although you will see canoe/kayak traffic throughout.  I like to canoe down, that way I cover a lot of water with little effort. Havent had a lot of experience on the river and still learning, but it is a gem and a lot of fun to fish.  It helps me with a "change of scenery" and the ordinary routine of summer guiding out of the Lund.  Good luck and tight lines, JH

I have never caught a Burbot in either of these tributaries.  I have caught them on Lake Superior and St Louis River through the ice when they make there spawn run cycle.  But that is always on ice in the winter.  Let me know if you would be interested is setting up a trip for next ice season and we will get you some Eel Pout.  Thanks, JH

I have been up there in September a couple times and fished big lake with a mouse after dark for the Browns. Have yet to land one but have had several blow ups! That will make you pee down your leg. LOL! The Brule is a pretty special place! I would love to figure out some of the local streams for brooky fishing?

Big Hitter,

I agree with everything you said about the hardware fishing. Been wading those waters since 82'. Nothing like hooking a steelhead. Like hooking into a bird that you just let out of a cage. Good luck up there folks.
