Northern Ontario Brook Trout Fishing

The brook trout fishing is excellent in the river and a few bays in the main lake. They are aggressive fish, and will hit almost anything.

In cases of higher water levels they will move up further into the creeks and come back into the river and lake in lower water conditions.

2 to 3 pound brook trout are common and we have caught brookies in the 7 and 8 pound range.

Brookies tend to move in and out of holes in the river. One day it will be full of brook trout and the next day it will have walleye feeding there. (I have personally caught over 25 brook trout in the 2 to 3 pound range in one hole!)
