Lake Nipigon, the Nipigon River and all the smaller satellite lakes and streams that surround and run into Lake Nipigon are famous for being the hottest Brook Trout fishing destination in the Ontario. It’s also home to the official World Record Brook Trout caught by Dr. JW Cook in 1915. Pasha Lake Cabins is located right in the middle of it all. Pasha Lake Cabins is only a 20-minute drive from the public boat launch on Lake Nipigon and the Nipigon Forest Reserve where you will have access via a short hike to some of the best rapids on the Nipigon River.
Brook Trout in the 12 to 20-inch range are the most commonly caught size on Lake Nipigon. 10% of the Brook Trout you catch will be 21 to 26 inches and sometimes you may get a monster that’s over 26 inches. A 26-inch Brook Trout is usually around 8 pounds. Most people consider a 3-pound Brook Trout a trophy. It’s very rare for a Brook Trout to be caught over 8 pounds in Lake Nipigon but on occasions, Brookies up to 10-pounds are taken. As we said before, Brook Trout are very sensitive to weather but if you do hit the lake on a good day you should bring in between 1 and 12 good size trout. It depends on how well you know the lake and how much experience you have fishing in a lake for trout.
