In early spring you can catch Brook Trout casting trout spoons, trolling or flyfishing. You can also cast towards shore with countdown Rapalas and pull the lure through logs and other structure that will give the Brookies cover. As the water warms up, the trout go deeper but not as deep as Lake Trout. You can still catch them with downriggers or a 3-way swivel rig. Some anglers will find a deep drop-off and jig for them with small jigs. Usually in the heat of the summer they are down around 25 to 35 feet deep.
The Nipigon River traditionally produces world class Brook Trout. They are usually what are called Lake Superior Coasters. These Coaster Brook Trout get big and migrate into and out of the river all year. These Coaster Brook Trout have been caught in the 10 to 12-pound range on many occasions. Coaster Brook Trout populations do not exist like they did in the 19th century but the MNR and the Town of Nipigon are actively trying to restore the Coaster Population through habitat restoration and stocking from existing Coaster eggs, which have a unique genetic profile.
There are no fishing camps on Lake Nipigon. Vacationing at Pasha Lake Cabins and taking day-trips to Lake Nipigon is the most advantageous plan you can make. If the weather turns bad, you can still have a productive day of fishing on the lakes surrounding Pasha Lake instead of sitting in a hotel room in town waiting for the charter boat to give you the ok. Miserable weather usually means the Walleyes are hitting like crazy.
