This Hotspot is the head of Pikes Feeder Pond along the Torrent River near Hawke’s Bay, Newfoundland. It’s a tough journey to access this Hotspot, but very rewarding once you arrive.

In their 2013 Fish’n Canada episode shot here, Angelo Viola and General Rick Hillier used a variety of surface flies with either green or red being the most successful colours. Both fly-casting and trolling two to six-feet deep were very effective at getting fish to rise.

An interesting note: it is the law that all non-resident anglers visiting Newfoundland must hire a guide.
