...unfortunately time and distance only allow me 1 week a year during the summmer. I grew up in Alpena but when I go back we spend the time at the family cabin in Hillman...let me assure you, at least in my area, the specks are alive and well. The usual stream/rivers still get their fare share of pressure...but 30 years later my 2 secret streams are still that...little or no pressure and if you work hard enough, brookies up to 16 inches...is it April yet?
