A wild and picturesque river that serves as part of the border between Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin. The Brule River is an often-overlooked treasure of the North Country. The stream, which defines a 45-mile stretch of border between the states of Michigan and Wisconsin, slices through a vast expanse of near wilderness before joining with the Michigamme River to form the Menominee River. Most of the land on the Wisconsin side of the river is part of Nicolet National Forest, while large sections of the Michigan side are owned by the state. Blessed with cold and clear waters, unbroken pavilions of forestland, and a terrific profusion of wildlife (including osprey, bald eagles, mergansers, mallards, moose, and deer), the Brule is a true pleasure to canoe from spring through fall. Best of all, the Brule receives remarkably little pressure from paddlers or anglers despite its many winning qualities.
