Spring Lake Trout
Spring Lake Trout

April-May - Always the best time to catch Lake trout, temperatures are ideal and the fish can be laying at the surface. We use light line and lures or fly fish for them.

May-June - Brook trout are busy in the streams, rivers and small lakes in and surrounding Algonquin Park. This is the prime time to catch brook trout on dry flies and nymph patterns.

June - No doubt the hottest time for pike, temperature is ideal and the fish are very hungry after the spawn. Walleye are also aggressive at this time. Bass opens at the end of this month.

July-August - Bass fishing is in full swing, every summer Captain Mike's guests catch many bass in the 5 to 6 pound range. Walleye and Pike are still fair to good.

September-October - The very best Smallmouth bass fishing can be at this time. Lake Trout are sometimes caught while deep jigging for bass.

Drift Boat Trips with Ontario Brook Trout Guide

Traveling just 2 hours north of Toronto you enter Ontario's largest population of brook trout.

Over one third of Ontario's brook trout is located in the Muskoka, Algonquin Park Region making it one of North America's premiere brook trout destinations.

Your guide Michael has 20 years experience guiding flyfishermen on the pristine lakes and river systems of Algonquin Park and surrounding areas. These cool, clear brook trout & smallmouth bass waters receive very little fishing pressure compared to the angler congested river systems of Southern Ontario. Here the only anglers you will see is the blue heron and the osprey.

The athletic river smallmouth bass is so numerous that you will be glad the guide supplies all the flies needed.

A 4,5 or 6 weight fly rod is all that's needed to catch a brook trout or smallmouth bass. If you don't have you own fly rod you can use one of Mike's White River outfits. Streamers, dryflies along with indicator style nymph fishing is used to catch both brook trout and smallmouth on these beautiful rivers.
