This Hotspot is a section of the Sturgeon River in Northern Ontario. This river pool loads up with Whitefish in the fall making them easy to access with a boat. Though it’s limited, there is access from shore as well.
Try casting and slowly reeling a small #2 spinner right through the school of fish. Whitefish, in general, are somewhat hard to hook because of their sucker-like mouth but a steady, sweeping hookset will usually do the trick.
If you’re releasing fish then please try not to exhaust them during the fight as they are quite a delicate species.
By the way, though: Whitefish taste great either smoked or fried.
