Lake Nipigon is the top destination in Ontario if you want to experience the thrill of catching a World Class Monster Lake Trout. Lake Trout in Lake Nipigon have an astonishing average size of 20 pounds with many being caught and released during the summer that range between 30 and 40 pounds. On occasion, Lake Trout in the 45-pound class get caught. The record Lake Trout for Lake Nipigon was just over 62 pounds, and just under the Ontario record by a few ounces, which was caught in Lake Superior. The MNR netted a Lake Trout over 64 pounds in Lake Nipigon while conducting a Lake Trout population study in 2007.
You could go to the Arctic or the Yukon and spend $6500 US or more and catch the same size fish that you can catch in Lake Nipigon but you just don’t need to spend that kind of money. The difference is the accommodations at Pasha Lake Cabins are a fraction of the price, considerably more comfortable and you have the opportunity to catch many other species of gamefish including Northern Pike, Walleye, Brook Trout, Splake, Perch and Whitefish. The outcroppings of Canadian Shield Rock, framed with towering pine trees, is a much more beautiful and sole-soothing environment than a barren and lifeless arctic tundra. Remember, you are on your vacation so relaxation and a calm state-of-mind is just as important as fishing.
