Trophy Brook Trout

This fishing charter happened back in June 2009 and was the culmination of a dream I've had for awhile. It came about as a first date actually. Caught some fish, but not the man! A brook trout fishing trip on Lake Nipigon and the Nipigon River. We were three days fishing.
This is a world class brook trout fishery with careful monitoring and controls . while on the water we were approached and filled out a creel survey.

And scenic beauty galore. We camped in tents on the river and had food provided by the guide.

You must have a very experienced guide to fish here due to very strong currents and a large hydro dam project.

Also, a good guide will get you onto the fish!

As we head south to the first dam. We couldn't have asked for better weather.

People will give me heck for not recalling exactly all the lengths and weights. I caught less fish than the boys but mine were all the best.

In three days I caught three brook trout and they were all trophy size. But I of course quickly put them back in the river.

This fellow was the heaviest with the widest girth and yes, he put up a good fight! If memory serves he was six pounds eight ounces. I had a longer one at 23 plus inches...
This trip was a blast from start to finish. I highly recommend it to serious fishers.
