This Fish’n Canada episode is somewhat of a nostalgic one for me. Nostalgic in the sense of the quarry I’m after, the Brook Trout, or as they’re sometimes called, Speckled Trout. These gorgeous little creatures have always been a high priority in the Bowman family fishing adventures. To this day, my dad still tells stories […]
Did you know that the Algoma region has one of the best Brook Trout fisheries in the world? It’s all about water quality, genetics, and location. The natural spawning Brook Trout in Algoma have an ideal habitat to live and reproduce in. They thrive in the spring-fed and extremely fertile waters. When it comes to […]
To get to today’s amazing Brook Trout fishing, Pete first drove north on Hwy 400 to Hwy 69. Then turned West on Hwy 17 to the town of Massey. From there, he drove north on gravel roads 553 and 810, before ending up at the gorgeous Ritchie Falls Resort. After enduring the long drive through […]
Ritchie Falls Brook Trout – N 46° 44.509’ W 82° 16.042’ Today’s Hotspot, is on one of the “many” fantastic Brook Trout lakes that Ritchie Falls Resort has access to. The waypoint on your screen will get you there. A small 1/3 ounce copper and red spoon was the ticket for this trip. I love […]

John Winters talks to Angelo about his Brook Trout fishing on a local stream. Also some general rule of thumb for fishing Brock Trout in most small streams and rivers in North America
This Hotspot is a very specific break-line on Lac St Pierre on the St Lawrence River in Quebec. It’s a major feeding area for Large and Small Mouth Bass, as well as Walleye and Pike. The current is deceivingly strong here so drifting baits very close to the bottom is the key. Tube jigs are the #1 choice here followed by curly tailed grubs and Dropshot finesse worms. Experiment with colors as the fish’s preferences seem to change daily.
The province of Ontario is thought to have gotten its name from an Iroquois word meaning “Beautiful water”—and we couldn’t imagine a more fitting title. With over a quarter of a million unique lakes containing one-fifth of the planet’s fresh water, Ontario is a bottomless treasure chest for anglers of all types, delivering wonders and […]
It’s been quite some time since the Fish’n Canada team has put a river Steelhead show together. With this slice of sportfishing being so popular, we had to “don the waders” and hit the river. THE GANNY The water that Pete fished for this episode was the upper portion of the Ganaraska River. The “Ganny”, […]
