Big Lake

Rating - Good   

Friday, Oct 15 2021
This is a great lake if you are after big Arctic Char or Dolly Varden. Rainbow fishing can also be very productive. Northern Pike are also present in some areas of the lake. Some very large fish have been taken in recent years. Fishing will stay good right up to freeze up and after the ice is safe for another month after that, before slowing down a little for winter. This is a no bait lake. Hot orange, glow and chartreuse tubes work well here. Using electronics can really increase your catch. Pike can be caught at the mouths of creeks and in the shallow water along weedy shorelines. Top water baits are always fun way to target pike. Trolling cowbells or dodgers with spoons or spinners can be very productive for char and rainbows.
