Otter Lake – N 45° 48.299′ W 74° 47.647′
Today’s Hotspot is Otter Lake in Quebec’s Kenauk Nature Reserve. The waypoint on your screen will get you there.
Since this is a small, bowl-shaped lake with very little bottom structure, we suggest trolling for best results. Covering water is the key to success here. The Princecraft guys did great trolling flies, while we did equally well using small spoons. Vary your trolling speeds for better success.
For a break in the Rainbow action, you can do as Steve did and target Largemouth Bass as well. We highly recommend bringing the portable GPS/Sonar combo. Once you locate a group of fish, waypoint and stay with them until the action stops. Then simply look for another school and repeat the process.
Otter is an “electric motor only” lake. Contact Kenauk and they can provide you with a small boat and trolling motor.
