Hi everyone, I am planning a trip to Algonquin Park sometime in June Or May this year. I've been researching for days but now and starring at Jeff's map of Algonquin for days, now all thats left is one question. Is the fishing around Highway 60 actually that hopeless when targeting brookies? Every corner of the internet is saying that in order to catch a brookie there you have to canoe 1-2 days into the bush for that. But a mission like that would be dangerous for me since I have never really done something like that before and barely have a lot of canoeing experience as it is. Plus I have a tear in my left shoulder so I cant push it like crazy. I however have nothing against portaging to spot as long as its not too far away that i have to stay overnight there. Please don't try to pressure me into portaging overnight I've made up my mind. I have read on a former forum that the big lakes are empty but the smaller ones around the highway hold some trout. I am not looking for names of the lakes, I just want to know how the fishing was for those of you who have tried the small lakes and ponds around highway during spring. Were you helplessly skunked? What species did you catch there? How heavily fished are these areas, really? Did the spots look almost never travelled? Also should I be focusing my efforts more on the creeks around the highway rather than the lakes due if theres better fishing there? If you have a creek spot please DM me. Thank You all for your help. I will attach Jeffs map for you all.
