Missanabie Area Brook Trout Fishing:
The Brook Trout, also called the Speckled Trout by residents of Ontario, is the most beautiful trout in the world and the best tasting trout in the world. Of all the trout species available in Ontario, Brook Trout are in the most demand yet can be the hardest to find. They can be a very elusive fish because they migrate up and down streams constantly looking for food and cooler water. A Brook Trout stream can be a very fragile environment and over-fishing can wipe out a stream in days. With this in mind, we only disclose the location of our Brook Trout to our guests.
We have a small lake and a beautiful stream, which both have Brook Trout. Both are only accessible via truck and both are hidden way back in the bush. In the stream the Brook Trout are common up to 12 inches. In the lake you can catch them up to 18 inches. We are sure there are a few Brookies that are bigger in the lake.
Please Note: Due to unusual weather the last couple of years Brook Trout have been harder to catch. They like a few stable days of sunny high pressure weather to bite well. Somehow Smallmouth Bass got into the stream so the Brook Trout are spooked and tend to hide under log jams to protect themselves from bass.
