Michipicoten River near Wawa, Ontario
These are the waterways I speak of when I talk about getting around this area. The Mission Falls are close by and this river in general provides some great trout and bass fishing. Local anglers seem to be using alewives, trout dough and fly baits, in which case you would want to hook the alewives in 1 of 2 places. First: To get a life like swim out of your alewives hook them through the bottom lip, this will cause the head to follow your hook as you reel, the fish will have a life like swim to it. Second: Hook the alewives through the spine with the hook pointing upward out the back, this will allow them to sit and float horizontally as if they would normally. A trout will creep up from behind and strike hard on this unsuspecting baits. Use monofilament lines to keep your line camouflaged. If the alewives aren't working try some local larvae. Cast at the shorelines from the shore or from a boat. Use monofilament lines and keep the wire leaders on. Cheers!
