In Topic: First trip in Algonquin, any good beginner routes?

What species are you interested in?

I was one of the contributors to a map my friend made of Algonquin full of brook trout spots

While I will not give you access to the map, I can point you in the right direction of where to go and how to access it if you tell me where about you'll be fishing (town or general area will help)

I'm no expert, but I'm sure I can help you catch some fish.

 

Lake Niapenco and Mountsberg Reservoir are good spots to take your small boat out for small pike and bass

 

If you are interested in salmon and trout. I recommend the Niagara Whirlpool. It's a open year round and a great spot for shore fishing. It has a massive run of rainbow trout so if your planning on keeping them it won't impact the fishery. I'll send you a pm on how to access it.

 

The rod you currently have will definitely get the job done. The best rod I've purchased is the Shimano Sojourn that goes for around $40-60 (7 foot medium fast spinning rod). I've caught salmon, steelhead, brown trout, bass, pike, and panfish on this rod. So don't be pressured to buy into all that expensive high-end gear.

 

Bass will eat a variety of lures but the easiest way to catch them are fishing plastic minnow baits on a jig head. Pike (especially at mountsberg) will hit vibrax spinners, and spinnerbaits. For salmon/trout at the whirlpool, vibrax spinners are one of the best lures to use
