Fishing Methods

Fly Fishing for Brook Trout

Fly fishing is a popular way to catch Brook Trout on Kwagama Lake. Many guests enjoy wading the shoreline, fishing from a float tube or in a boat. Flies that are popular at Kwagama Lake Lodge are many. Our guests that return year after year seem to prefer fly fishing with scuds (burnt orange and olive), wooly buggers (black, olive and brown), Griffiths Gnats dressed with a bit of red, Zug Bugs, Beck’s Super Bugger, Royal Coachman, Caddis and Clousers. Fly fisherman favor rods in the 3 wt. to 6 wt. class. Some fish scuds just below the surface with a floating line. Others use a sink tip, and some prefer working wet flies and streamers deep with a full sink fly line.

spin Casting and Trolling for Brook Trout

Don’t think for one second that Kwagama Lake Lodge is only for fly fishermen! Spincast fishermen are more than welcome and will find excellent fishing using a variety of methods. Sit back, relax and troll for that trophy brook trout with a night crawler behind a couple small spinners (a Hildebrandt rig)…it’s deadly on the specks! Others use small jigs and crawlers, or slip bobbers with crawlers just off bottom. Regardless of your preferred method of catch, our brook trout are here waiting to be caught by everyone!
