Torch Lake itself is drained by the Torch River, which flows into Lake Skegemog, which opens into Elk Lake. Elk Lake flows into the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay at Elk Rapids. This watershed is popularly known as the Chain of Lakes."
I don't think the lakes were that big and they didn't have much in the way of river connecting them. We might have been on one of the smaller lakes I guess and the Traverse City area does sound right.
