Shallow trout action in June?



Bob Dekker and his son Jackson flew from New Brunswick for two days of trout fishing and reminiscing about past trips to Clearwater Lake back when Bob was much younger.  The last day of May and first day of June did not disappoint.


A familiar and welcomed sight for those who have ever done “the creek”.


…not always big, but often plentiful and very tasty…..


…The perfect setting for a shore lunch of freshly caught lake trout…



…Not all the action takes place below the water……


On the last night in camp they take the opportunity to try the same shallow trolling techniques near the camp…..and with some big results.   Jackson with a 30 inch lake trout!


…and a good release.  A great end to a short trip.  Thank you Bob and Jackson for the pics!

    1. Andy, try not to be so critical on the Perchmaster. He’s missed a few years up here and his ability to identify fish is somewhat diminished.
