Lake Nipigon Brookies and Lake Trout

8 posts in this topic

Guy's I need some help/suggestions. My wife and I are heading to Pasha lake on the 15th. I have fished the area during the winter but never the summer. We would like to fish some splake, brookies and lakers, the lakers and brookies would be on Nipigon. I know you have to use barbless hook on Nipigon.

I was wandering if some one could suggest what type of baits to use, we will be running down riggers. So any help you guys could give me would greatly be appreciated.

Take care,

Sniper1

Sniper,

I've stayed at Pasha and spent time on big Nip. Depends when your going up. Early season the brookies can be found shallow around the rocks and you can cast to them and during the summer out deep suspended near the top over deep water or on the lakes humps. Try jointed raps, stick baits, etc for the brookies and for the lakers which can be found just about anywhere troll HUGE spoons. Try canoes, williams, and wobblers. I'm sure you've been to the splake lake already cool.gif. Good luck and let me know if theres anything I can help you with.

Outdoor ran:

I was planning on running cowbells and crawlers for the splake. We have never fished trout when we have been up there. The splake lake is thru Geraldton, we went into a fly in lake in March on sleds. Did you ever fish Neeza, just up the road from the 801 for blue walleyes??. We did in march wow are they nice fish.

Our plan is to fish Northwinds, Neeza, the splake lake, maybe run up to Katchican for a day and maybe run to the jackfish river on Nipigon.

Any suggestions you can give us as far as what to use and where to go would greatly be appreciated. This is my wife's first trip into Canada.

Thanks again for the help.

Doug

Havn't tried Neeza, Have fish NW a few times. Last year it went bad at the landing. Some Mich boys thought they owed the lake and launch. We just run stick baits on the DR for the splake. We talk about making the 20 mile run to the Jackfish every year but just havn't done it yet. If you get blown off the big lake you can go to the royal windsor and fish Oriant bay. Some nice brookies in there too.

Tom, what map? I no nothing about a map wink.gifgrin.gif

I was wondering where that map came from smirk.gif. I'm not going up there this year frown.gif My fishing buddies talked me into going antelope hunting in the fall instead. Hopefully next year we can get back up to the big Nip.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
