Marquette County

Salmon Trout River in the Huron Mountains of Marquette County is home to the endangered "coaster" brook trout. The river flows into Lake Superior several miles northwest of Big Bay. The river rises in the northern portions of Michigamme Township and Marquette Township and flows through Powell Township. The headwaters of this river are in the Yellow Dog Plains.

The Huron Mountain Club (HMC), which owns a large tract of land in the mountains, including a portion of the Salmon Trout River. However, the private club zealously restricts access to its property.

This river has received attention lately as its head waters are located near a proposed sulfide mine. Groups opposed to this claim sulfide mining may lead to acid mine drainage that can adversely affect water systems, while proponents claim that sulfide mining can be done without adverse environmental effects.

Houghton County

Salmon Trout River in Houghton County flows into Lake Superior on the west side of the Keweenaw Peninsula near Redridge at 47°09'10" north latitude, 88°46'22" west longitude. The river rises in Adams Township, just north of M-26, between Painesdale and Toivola.
