Spent three days fishing Jessie Lk, Lk Nipigon and the Black Sturgeon river. Weather was unseasonably cold, summer is late and our guide opined prime brook fishing is probably 1-2 weeks away. We booked last week to hit the prime season of course.

Of the Brooks we caught, smallest was 16 and the largest was 24; half of our catch was over 20. The smaller brooks were in Lake Nipigon and the hawgs were in Jessie. What a massive system of water they have there. The occasional pike, whitefish, herring of some sort were mixed in and kept you engaged in between Speck hookups.

The last night there we went on the Sturgeon river and waded for a few hours after dinner. Once we got the hole dialed in, we were catching walleye on every-other cast, with a pike and smallie mixed in. Biggest walleye was 24-ish. Day earlier reports had sturgeon and steelheads in the water, but we didnt see any.

7-weight full sink lines at times were not enough for the current. I fished 300 & 350gr lines. Weighted white smelt (bunny), olive zonkers a pine squirrel muddlers.

All-in-all, we caught seven different species of fish.

While not a yearly trip for me, Id do it again after I check off a few other places I want to go.
