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.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
