Brook Trout Lakes:
There are a few nice spring-fed Brook Trout lakes in the Missanabie area and not too far from our lodge is a really nice Brook Trout lake. It is stocked by the MNR, and considered a put and take lake. This is a term used by the MNR for stocked lakes. It means they expect it to be fished. It's a small lake and motors are not neccessary. You can use an electric motor on a small fishing boat or use a canoe or kayak. In this lake guests have caught Brook Trout up to 7 pounds. That is a monster for this lake. Most of the Brook Trout you will catch will be in the 1 to 2.5 pound range. In the spring you can cast small spinners or Cleos. Some guests like to fly-fish. Later on after dinner, even in the summer, Brook Trout come up to the surface to feed on insects. You just have to be quiet and cast your fly to where you see ripples on the surface.
