Lake Nipigon Brookies and Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

Sniper1

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.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
