Walleye & Brook Trout Gold in Algoma

Updated: By Fish'n Canada

Fish’n Canada had a couple of interesting shoots in the 2017 season in the Algoma region of Ontario. First was a trip to Blue Fox Camp for a shot at world-class brook trout in tiny lakes. The other was Loch Island Lodge for walleye.

The Blue Fox shoot didn’t disappoint. Angelo took the reigns on this one as he headed into the back lakes via ATV. After a 20-minute trek through the trails, he ended up at a tiny lake that boasts some of the biggest “specks” that he’s ever seen. Along with one of his personal best brook trout between 6 and 8 pounds, he got a bonus of a bunch of fiery, wound-up lake trout. This is a great episode and definitely worthy of viewing!

Trip Two to Loch Island Lodge had Pete team up with Danny Thompson from Garmin as they attempted to re-draw over the existing depth maps with Garmin’s latest Quickdraw feature. By scanning and then fishing many of the lodge’s usual hotspots they were able to pick apart newly found “spots within spots”. This turned a rather tough shoot (the Mayfly hatch was in full force) into a great show.

As per usual, the Algoma region came through again!
