Tecumseh is actually at the end of the river basically the start of the lake. Depending on what you want to fish for you can find everything on some point in the river. Best way to fish it will be to float and fish along the way. If you just want to hit the public accesses you can do that as well. Blair bridge and Patrick both are decent for trout, but get pressured quite a bit. The upper end is okay for smallmouth, but I would go to Bryant creek if bass were my targeted species. If you are looking to camp and float there are several outfitters to choose from. I personally would use sunburst ranch, but I may be biased. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the info. I don't usually fish for trout. In fact, it's been almost 5 years since. Mostly I like fishing for smallies.
Looking at the Google map around Tecumseh after my original post, I seen the accesses for Blair and Patrick. I just didn't know what species I would find there until your reply.
Where is the upper end of the North Fork? Kinda hard to follow on Google Maps. Where is Bryant Creek?
Does Sunburst Ranch do shuttles and or canoe/kayak rentals?

Blair & Patrick are in the trout water...starts at Rainbow Spring on the Map...but there are several public access points above...Hebron, Hammond Camp, ets...its usually too low to float up there this time of year though. I'd try the Bryant instead. Talk to Justin about your float/shuttle options. I stay at Sunburst often and they treat people well. Cheers.

Thanks for the tips. Have a great time out there and don't forget to post a report.

my son, Rusty, is a guide for River of Life Farm at the falls on NFOW. it's a great place to stay or fish out of. he will make you chicken & dumplings for a shore lunch, if you wish, and put you on fish. you can put in there and pay a modest rod fee if you want to do it on your own.
Thanks for the tip. I wrote that down for future reference. I'm unemployed right now and can barely afford the gas up there let alone a rod fee.
