Brook Trout of Kwagama Lake

Kwagama Lake is loaded with wild brook trout (also known as speckled trout or “specks”). Kwagama’s typical brook trout is 15 to 19 inches in length. On occasion, fishermen catch a 12 inch fish. Likewise, on occasion, they will also catch a trophy brook trout that exceeds 22 inches.

Kwagama Lake has no minnow base, other than its natively spawned brookies. It could almost be named “Scud Lake” for its huge population of the small freshwater shrimp that our trophy brook trout thrive upon. Its these scuds as well as a variety of insects that make up the Kwagama brook trout’s diet.
