Posts: 1My wife and I will be visiting Brule in Mid-July, staying for several days. Any advice on fly fishing spots on the Brule River would be appreciated

The upper river, state highway S and US highway 2, is the classic trout water. A canoe trip from S down to Winneboujou landing is a popular option that covers the majority of this reach.

I don't want to give away secret walk-in spots people told me in confidence, but if you have several days you should be able to find some good ones on your own. There aren't all that many public ways to access it, so good maps are your friend. If you go to any of the really obvious spots (bridges, etc) you'll probably have company and find moderately-pressured fish.

To reach the best fishing without floating, you'll want to walk farther from the easy access points, either by wading long distances or by hiking long distances through lesser-known public land routes.
