Here at Lakewood Camps, we pride ourselves with offering guests the chance of a life time. That being the opportunity to fish for the rare brook trout. Our facility is surrounded by great areas to fish in which brook trout and landlocked salmon roam freely. It is truly a sight to see when you have your hands on these amazing creatures, and to keep the sport fresh and preserve the species, we ask that you put them back in the river after catching. In order to catch brook trout and get the most of your time on the water, we have a couple of tips in terms of what kind of bait to use.
Catching brook trout is a lot like catching rainbow trout, so using small baits are a good option to start off with. Small spinners like #0 Mepps or # Blue Foxes work best, and brook trout will also hit worms and natural bugs like Grasshoppers or May Flies. Whether you want to go with natural or artificial bait, as long as you have small sized bait, you should be all set to go. One of the best artificial baits out there for brook trout is the Berkley Trout Bait, which is a putty like bait. Roll the dough up into a small shaped ball and place it on the tip of your hook and your all set!
Like with your bait, your hooks should be small as well. This will maximize your chances of catching a brook trout. A popular hook that anglers use for catching brook trout is the Eagle Claw Laser Sharp hook. We provide our guests with some of the best equipment out there so everyone can have a chance to catch all the fun!
