Great fish, sounds like a fun trip. My family and I are trying to get up to Algonquin for a fishing day-trip, do you think the brook trout will still be biting? It looks like you got there for a day trip as well, could you possibly point me in the right direction in terms of what part of the park to go to for such a short trip?

Each part of the park is pretty decent once you get off the main path.

I'm heading in this weekend and will let you know how deep I find them.

The brook trout will definitely still be biting. As for lakes to fish ,research brook trout lakes within your comfort range for a day trip. Some people may be ok doing a 5 km. portage for a day trip and others may not. Any road in the park has brook trout within day trip range.

It is hard to find a lake in the park where you donít have a legit chance of catching trout whether they be lakers or brook. Iíve never had a bad time there fish or no fish.

Do get out and try ..... thatís the fun part. Itís my dream to travel the park from north to south in one spring trip.

Years ago, 3 of us did a 10 day trip, sort of what you're speaking of. Canoe lake, as far as Catfish, and back, different route on return trip. Couple of stop-over days to fish certain areas more. Side trips to smaller lakes along the way. 200km paddling and 50km portaging we figure. Such a good trip!! Caught far fewer trout than our regular spring trip, but we got some real beauties too. Like 3 lakers over 10 lbs. from one particular lake, 2 of them within 10 minutes of one another. A lake you wouldn't even think held fish that size. On a different lake, saw an 8lb(ish) laker in less than a foot of water while approaching our site in the dark. While out in the canoe at dusk, we had a dozen or more loons yodelling back and forth from all ends of a mid size lake, until their voices and echoes all turned into one big amazing sound (like standing in the middle of a mall parking lot and 20 car alarms are going off-but in a peaceful sort of way if that makes any sense!)
Also passed through some prime looking lakes, without a nibble. Makes you want to be there on another day to try again, to be there on a 'on' day.
Its great exploring new waters, the stuff you see and experience, and just being out there for a few days is amazing. Catching fish is a welcomed bonus(especially when your menu consists of trout fillets🙃)

The best part of fishing for brook trout is the places they call home. Iíve never seen a brook trout lake that wasnít pretty and the country they inhabit is usually rugged and a bit lonely. Northern Ontario really is a beautiful place.
