    Lake Trout Lures

    Early in the year they will be more shallow than later on. In the spring, silver vertical jigs such as Hopkins Shorties and Swedish Pimpels (like ice fishing) tipped with a minnow works. Small silver spoons trolled deep works too. White tube jigs are popular as well.

    Later on in the year you may have to get down as much as 90 feet. If you haven't fished for them late in the year you probably don't have the specialized gear needed.

    Brook Trout Lures

    Stream fishing for these fiesty little fish is popular. Fly fishing will require a rolling cast as there are few areas with adequate back cast space.

    Small spoons (Aligators and Little Cleos less than 2" long including hook) and spinners (Mepps #0, Panther Martin 1/16oz and smaller) work for the spinning rods.

  • Lake Trout & Brook Trout Fishing

    Lake Trout

    There is a lot of negative folklore surrounding Lake Trout and you only hear it from people that have never caught a Lake Trout or have never eaten Lake Trout. The fact is Lake Trout taste fantastic and people who know how to catch them usually turn into Lake Trout fanatics. It's a very mild tasting trout and far superior in flavor to Salmon or Rainbow Trout. When a Lake Trout is caught with normal size fishing gear like you use for Walleye, they give up a great fight and are a lot of fun to catch. Please take a look at our Deep Water Light Tackle Trout Techniques.

    Surrounding Lady Evelyn Lake are smaller spring-fed lakes, which hold good populations of Lake Trout. The two best producers for Lake Trout have been Lady Sydney Lake, where there is a boat, and Diamond Lake, which we will put a boat on for you with advanced notice or you can portage a canoe.

    Even though these lakes are tiny compared to Lady Evelyn Lake, only a couple of guests ever fish them during the summer each year and as a result they are still stuffed with trout. The longest portage is around mile and takes 15 to 20-minutes to walk.

    Lake Trout will be common in the 1 to 3 pound range. Once in a while guests pull out bigger trout up to 5 pounds. It's hard to say how big the trout get in these two lakes because they are rarely fished.

    Brook Trout

    The Brook Trout, also called the Speckled Trout by most people in Ontario, are not only the most beautiful trout in the world; they are prized by trout fisherpersons as the best tasting trout. Their meat can range from a dark-red to light-pink and have a flavor that is very unique. The best way to eat them is fried in butter with a little salt. Brook Trout also have a very unique fight because they fight with quick flutters so you know you have a Brook Trout on your line.

    When guests ask for Brook Trout fishing, we send them to Frank's Falls. There is an easy portage at the falls and upstream from the falls, where springs run into the stream, Brook Trout can be found in the deeper holes.

    Brook Trout are generally small. They are common around 12 inches but many times guests run into larger Brookies up to 20 inches and weighing around 2 pounds. In the last few years guests have caught a few as large as 4 pounds. Since we only have a couple of guests that go up river for Brook Trout each year, we may be underestimating the availability of trophy Brook Trout. The river is big enough to produce giant Brook Trout and there is plenty of food for them. On top of that there are sections of the river that are wide and deep like a lake and Brookies in those conditions are known to get big.

    Burbot & Whitefish Fishing

    Whitefish Fishing

    Whitefish are common in Lady Evelyn Lake. They are usually caught in the spring in shallower water while Walleye fishing. They have tiny mouths and usually hit very small jigs or lures. In the spring, Whitefish can be seen in the morning and evening feeding on insects on the surface or the water. They stay shallow in the spring waiting for the May Fly hatch. Once the May Fly hatch is over, Whitefish go deep and are rarely caught after that.

    A great way to catch Whitefish in the spring is fly-fishing. Whitefish give up a great fight and can be a lot of fun on a light-action fly rod. Fly-fishing for Whitefish has been gaining popularity.

    Burbot Fishing

    The Burbot, also called the Ling, is a bottom feeding fish. In Ontario they are generally not regarded as a sport-fish because people have so many other species to fish for. In Western Canada and Western USA, Burbot are highly prized as they can reach a good size, give up a great fight and they taste very much like Walleye. Guests do come across Burbot while fishing for Walleye but rarely. Burbot generally stay deep during the day and come into the shallows to feed at night so your best chance at catching one would be to use the same techniques as catfish. Just cast off shore at night with a sinker, hook and a worm. Let it sit on bottom and wait.
