may fish for natural brook trout in the many feeder streams, or take a
short portage to one of the annually stocked brook trout lakes, where we have a boat for your use.
Spending an afternoon on the trout lake will become a memorable part of your fishing trip. In most instances you will find yourself alone on a beautiful spring-fed lake with your only company being a number of industrious beavers.
Trout seem to prefer cool, clear, spring-fed waters, and have thrived in the 8 years since being established here. Small brook trout are numerours but put up a good fight. The larger fish are more timid and though you may see them on your fishfinder, they are not as abundant back at the fish-cleaning hut and therefore are a prized catch.
Most people associate trout with fly-fishing, however we have seen much success from live bait, particularly night crawlers.
Cedar Plank Trout
We were lucky to have a professional chef with us in the first week of the 2005 season. Other than the best pull pork I've ever tasted, he made us the delicious yet simple Cedar Plank Trout.
STEVE MAYBERRY'S CEDAR PLANK TROUT
Soak an UNTREATED cedar plank in water for at least half an hour. Preheat grill.
Fillet that trout, but leave the skin on. Brush fillets with oil then rub on salt and pepper.
Top with thin slices of lemon and dill to taste.
Place soaked cedar plank on grill over direct medium heat.
When cedar plank starts to smoke place fish skin down on plank.
Close the lid and grill for about 15 minutes or until the fish is done.
