Brook trout are exceedingly abundant in the Leaf River, with the most averaging from the 3 to 5 pounds. Most anglers choose to fish by wading the edges of the river, though you may fish from the boat if you prefer.
Fly fishing is the preferred method with daily hatches and incredible streamer fishing to be experienced. If the river is high, spin fishing with light tackle and spoons can be the most productive way to take fish. Leaf River brookies are aggressive, fight hard and boast beautiful colours.
Many anglers have the misconception that Lake trout, or Lakers, can be lazy and sluggish. On the Leaf, nothing could be further from the truth! Leaf River Lakers are vicious fish that seem to be part northern pike and part trout. Their ferocious hits seem more like a blast from a striped bass than a trout. Lakers are so vicious, they will eat 2 and 3 pound brook trout as you try to land them.
Leaf River Lakers frequently top 10 pounds and average 4 to 9 pounds. Both streamers and spinning lures work well for lake trout.

Lake trout requires cold water, clear and well oxygenated, which is why it is found almost exclusively in oligotrophic lakes. During summer, they often move 50 or 100 ft (15 to 30 m) deep, but in spring, they can also be found at depths of 20 ft (6 m) or less. They prefer water temperatures between 9 ° and 11 ° C (48 ° and 52 ° F).

Demanding towards the quality of water, a population of brook trout requires clear waters, fresh and oxygenated. They are often found in very small streams in the mountains (hence the name brook) and they are often called “Brookies” although juveniles of other species have this nickname. This species is extremely sensitive to water pollution which makes it an excellent indicator of the quality of its ecosystem.
