Boundary Waters Brook Trout

Last week I had the opportunity to fish for some fat brook trout and catch some of the biggest brookies I have ever caught. The weather was generally nice for most of the trip, but the sand flies were generally bad.

The fishing was pretty good.

These brook trout reside in small, deep lakes. Their main forage is minnows and they grow fast and get big.

Brook trout lakes in the boundary waters are some of the toughest lakes to get to. They are generally higher elevation lakes in some rugged country, but well worth the effort.

      The rain gear was some old Gander mountain guide series stuff which worked pretty well but eventually lost some of its water proof capability after years of use in heavy wet conditions. It’s pretty hard to beat gore-tex like Simms these days.
