Summer time is an excellent time to target big Brook Trout in large cold rivers and inland lakes. The Grdosic family recently had a chance to fish the Nipigon River, ON and make it a boating/camping adventure.
The Nipigon River is famous for producing trophy Brook Trout fishing in addition to Walleye and Pike.
On this trip the Grdosic’s fly fished and gear fished by wading and also from thier boat.
Big Brook Trout learn to get that size by feeding on smaller trout and a variety of available baitfish. Small minnow imitating lures like Rapalas, spoons and spinners work well for them as well as streamer flies that look like baitfish.
