We are located in the Lake Nipigon Watershed. Our whole area is peppered with hundreds of spring-fed lakes, streams and ponds and all eventually flowing into Lake Nipigon. All these streams and lakes are stuffed with Brook Trout, Lake Trout and Splake.
BROOK TROUT (SPECKLED TROUT)
Brook Trout can be caught in many of the local lakes and streams but the best lakes are in the chart below. Brook Trout come in many different sizes. They are most common in the 10 to 16-inch range but bigger Brookies in the 3 to 6-pound range get taken throughout the year. There have been Brook Trout caught up to 8 pounds but they are rare at that size on the smaller inland lakes. Our guests, while fishing on Lake Nipigon, usually take the gigantic Trophy Brook Trout.
Lake Trout are common in the 2 to 10-pound range and on the inland lakes guests have caught Lake Trout over 25 pounds. Lake Trout are also available in good numbers. Guests have reported catching 30 keepers in a day. Even though you will catch lots of small ones, bigger trout usually take about an hour of fishing to get.
A cross between a Lake Trout and a Brook Trout. They were artificially bred and stocked into the Great Lakes but occur naturally in the small inland lakes in our area. Splake are rare in most areas but very common and easy to catch all year round at Pasha Lake Cabins. You catch Splake the same way you catch Lake Trout or Brook Trout.
