Great Lakes, Canada


Never been to this part of the country before. My wife and I are flying up mid July for a wedding and then taking two weeks to see our great country and our great country's attic, Canada. Taking the flyrod of course. If I use it or not is to be determined. We will be in:

Wisconsin
Michigan
Illinois
Canada (Toronto)
Upper New York through Niagra

Is there something I shouldn't miss? We'll have a rental and plenty of time on our hands, so the sky's the limit!

Checkout the Mackinac Bridge that connects the lower *****ula to the upper *****ula in Michigan. If ya do, take the ferry to Mackinac Island. Spend a night at the Grand Hotel. Beautiful.

WTH, wont let me spell Pen in sula....
Look it up.

Can't believe OHIO is not on the listsmile.

If you can manage a fishing trip up a little further north in Canada, it's epic. Walleye, northern pike, trout. Pike are a blast, their name esox Lucius (water wolf) is well earned
Might be a tad early for them depending how far north. Early June is the time

Where is the wedding? Wondering where your starting point is.
Milwaukee area, Port Washington is the wedding. Two days there at the wedding and the next 10 days we'll be traveling around.

We are staying in Mackinaw for a night or two.

And yes, we are planning on going out of our way if possible to avoid going into Ohio.

Since you are going up the east side of the state check out Door county area. Also that would be a good area to do some lake trout fishing in Lake Michigan on your way to the U.P. I was hoping to steer you to a couple of breweries in Chippewa Falls (Leinenkugels) and in Rhinelander (Rhinelander Brewery) but would be way out of the way. Enjoy Wisconsin! I was raised there and miss it 6 months out of the year! You need to find a cheese factory that sells fresh curds. Best thing ever.
Try to work your route through Traverse City / Petoskey Michigan. Beautiful area
