Catching Canoe Country Lake Trout is a guide for wilderness canoe travelers who want to learn simple and effective techniques for catching lake trout. The book is written by an avid wilderness angler with more than 50 years of travel experience in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Provincial Park. It follows the same easy-to-read, no-nonsense format of the author’s previous books, Catching Canoe Country Walleyes and Quetico Fall Fishing Legends. It reveals essential fishing tackle and proven techniques for finding and catching lake trout in the wilderness without the use of electronic gadgets. The book shows anglers how to locate lake trout lakes, and then read above water structure to quickly find fish. The book explains why a simple jig and plastic twister tail combination trumps more expensive metal spoons and crankbaits as the premier trout lure. But above all, the book lifts the veil from these often overlooked fish and shows anglers why lake trout—easy to find, fun to catch, great to eat—deserve a top billing on a canoe trip agenda.
