Beautiful Nick,

North Shore Superior? Have you ever been to the Nipigon River, I have always dreamed of that place, well for maybe 20 years since I learned about it.

We tried our luck below Alexander Dam but only caught a couple pink salmon. It's a big river and you need a boat to really fish it properly. Also, above Alexander Dam there are no salmon or steelhead, so it's natural brook trout and lake trout populations. This is where the best brookie fishing is found. We were fishing the mouth of a small trib close to Nipigon.

These are what's known as "coasters". They live in Lake Superior and run up into the tributaries to spawn. These are different than the Nipigon River strain. They don't get as heavy as the Nipigon strain but they still get huge! We saw a couple that were pushing 10lbs. I lost one big male that was close to 8lbs. Our biggest we got was 6lbs on that trip.

Locally caught small stream brook trout. Starting to get into their fall colors. A few had might have allready had eggs in them, in retrospect.


Is there anything prettier than a fall brookie?

LOL I know what you mean. Despite the fish topping out at around 12-13" in this stream, a few had seriously humped backs. Believe it or not, one fish that eluded my camera even had a miniature kype despite being 12"! They were like scaled down versions of normal giants. And GORGEOUS!!!
