Brook Trout

Catching colourful, wild brook trout (called “specks” in Northern Ontario) on a fly rod is a major incentive for fly fishers to visit Algoma Country. Whether it’s teasing them on the surface with a dry fly or going deep with a streamer, Algoma is one of the few places left in North America where you can catch truly wild brook trout in their natural habitat. And, as a bonus, access to the streams and lakes where they’re found is both easy and affordable.

The legal season for brook trout in Algoma is from ice-out to September. Fishing is good throughout these months but the best times vary according to location. More southerly locations tend to fish best early in the season (April to July). Most lodges who offer brook trout have rivers and streams which run into and drain lakes which teem with bright, wild brookies. These also offer the opportunity of fly fishing for pike or lake trout one day in the lakes and the next day hiking into a connecting river or stream to cast dry flies to eager brookies. Further north in Algoma, in locations such as the Sutton River there is exceptional brook trout fishing all season long.

It’s best to call operators to ascertain ideal timings for trout at their facility to time your visit to accommodate your specific needs.
