Lake Trout Fishing

Fishing for Big Lake Trout on Lake Nipigon

Another option besides targeting only big Brook trout in the Nipigon system, Is targeting the Big Lake trout.  The average size is 10-20lbs on the big lake. In certain bays 1 in 20 are over the size of 30lbs.  40-50lb Lake Trout are taken each year from Lake Nipigon.


Fall Laker Fishing

Lakers push shallow again but this time for the spawn of the late fall.  Lakers can be targeted but its depends on the accessibility of shoals and wind this time year. Targeting these lakers can be an incredible battle on spinning gear as well.


Spring Time Lakers

A good time to target the lakers is in the spring time. The lakers aren't restricted to the deep by the warm waters of the late spring to summer. The lakers will be shallower and easier to target.
