Host Colin McKeown with a 4 pound smallmouth bass caught at Birch Lake Resort.
Catching smallmouth bass on a fly rod is truly an angler's delight. Nestled in Algoma Country, only an hour or so from Sault Ste. Marie, Birch Lake Resort is surrounded by numerous lakes that have exceptional smallmouth bass fishing. To find bass that average 3 - 4lbs and that will willingly come to fly -- that is indeed a special place. In this area you can use topwater poppers, streamers and crayfish patterns to hook the bass. Using six or seven weight rods, this is great fishing at a great price! Best of all, the surrounding lakes have public access. Colin used poppers like these to catch smallmouth bass at Birch Lake Resort. Photo credit The New Fly Fisher Brown…

Trophy brook trout like this are amazingly common among anglers who fish Lake Nipigon in the month of June.
The Nipigon River holds the current world record brook trout   The current world record brook trout was caught by Dr. W.J. Cook on the Nipigon River in July of 1915. The fish which wasn't weighed until 21 days after it was caught tipped the scales at 14.5 pounds! This Nipigon River record has become the longest standing world record in sport fishing history!
