Species

In Wilderness North’s rivers and lakes you are sure to find some of the best of Canadian sport fish. From prolific walleyes to trophy pike and trout, you won’t be disappointed in the species our waters have to offer.

 

Brook Trout

Brook trout live in small streams, big rivers, ponds, and inland lakes. Brook trout are a member of the salmon family. Brookies are most active in the spring and fall when cooler water allows them to cruise the shorelines on their hunt for food. Angler’s looking to land a colourful trophy will most likely find success near overhanging trees, submerged wood, rocky points, and shoals. As waters warm, brookies in the lakes move deeper, becoming less aggressive. Brook trout in rivers holdout in cold aerated pools at the base of falls and rapids throughout summer, but spread out over the river in the spring and fall. In spring-fed creeks, anglers can ply the pools and shady areas caused by overhanging vegetation.

Northern Pike

Fishing for Canadian northern pike is an adventure class all on its own. This adaptable and agile hunter has the ability to remain stationary in the water, stealing bait without even a ripple. The northern pike will dash and strike at it’s pray with short bursts of strength, providing anglers with a unique experience. Being solitary and highly territorial, toothy northerns make for an exciting day out on the water. As an opportunist omniverous carnivore, Pike tend to lurk at the edge of weed beds unsuspectingly attacking fish, crayfish, frogs, mice, muskrats, and even young waterfowl, with a powerful striking dash.

 

Fly In Walleye Family Fishing

Walleye

The name walleye originates from the ability of their eyes to reflect white light, allowing them to hunt in low light situations. The best time to fish for walleyes is during dawn and dusk when they make the most of their traits and get a jump on their prey. While “walleye chop” or overcast days with rough water are the best conditions to fish for walleye, there is a new belief that bright sky fishing is just as productive. While other fish may run and hide out from the storm, walleye are the most active. In the spring walleye are more often located past the shoreline drop-off and around the bases of shore slopes. As the summer heats up, walleye head for deeper water.
