Brook Trout Fishing:
We have 3 small stream fed lakes a short drive north of Cozy Camp where the Brook Trout fishing is excellent all year! If we have had a few days of stable weather, the fishing is outstanding. You just have to time it right. We take you and a boat to this tranquil setting for a day of solitude and excitement! A day of Brook Trout fishing one of these crystal clear little lakes in a boat or a canoe can be blast! Brook Trout are common in the 8-inch to 13-inch range, perfect for pan frying. Guests do bring in 23-inch long Brook Trout, that are considered a trophy fish by many people and depending on the girth, could be between 3 and 4 pounds. When you have a brookie on your line get ready for a show! They dive and dance like no other fish!
Lake Trout Fishing:|
Just a 5 minute drive from Cozy Camp is Cecil Lake, for some outstanding Lake Trout fishing. They are common in the 3 to 8-pound range. Throughout the summer, Lakers around the 15-pound mark are caught and released with the occasional 20-pounder being caught. On an average day a Lake Trout hunter can catch between 10 and 20 Lake Trout, which by trout catching standards, is considered extremely good.
Cecil Lake has a drive-in boat launch so you can use your own boat or use our 16-foot Lund fishing boats with 15 hp Johnson motors. If you have never caught a Lake Trout but always wanted to, here is your chance. In the spring these feisty fish can be caught in shallow bays in 5' of water. As summer progresses & the water temperatures rise they will gradually move into deeper water. Because there are only two 80' foot holes in Cecil Lake, they are very easy to locate & a blast to bring up from these depths.
Just a short drive from Cozy Camp is Hakli Lake. Hakli Lake is a local secret that holds a rare gem, which most fisherpersons have never seen or caught. We cannot divulge its location on the Internet but we can tell you that Hakli Lake has Splake!!
A Splake is a rare hybrid of the Brook Trout and the Lake Trout. The Splake has a flat tail and red fins with a prominent white stripe on the fins like a Brook Trout but has the head and skin markings, which are similar to a Lake Trout. The Splake also has white gums like a Lake Trout while Brook Trout usually have black gums like a salmon.
Splake get big like a Lake Trout but their meat is red and lean and tastes more like a Brook Trout. Splake is considered to be right up their with Brook Trout as the best tasting trout in the world.
