SEA RUN BROOK TROUT

Our second star on the Trinité river is by no means the sea run brook trout, better known as truite de mer her in Québec. During the last years this sportfish popularity has taking off being very popular almost as much as the mighty atlantic salmon. This game fish often neglected in the past has given our river an added value an offer an unique challenge to our clientel, this fish is very elusive and shouldn't be taken lightly.

Like Salmo Salar, the sea run brook beside on some rare occasion does not feed when it enters the river. Bigger specimen if the get a chance will feed on big prey like mice and large bugs.

Generally speaking the sea run brookies tend to concentrate in the same pools as salar, being in the same pool does not mean the are in the same general area of the pool, the best area to try your luck are the tail end of the pool, close to cover near a cut bank and also fallen trees or debris are a good area to try your luck. The first sea run brook trout to show themselves at the fish way will be around the end of June. Most of the composition of the first runs of sea run brookies are large spawners in the 2 to 8 pounds class, during mid July average fish will start to head upriver these fish are mostly composed of 1 to 3 pound fish, closely following those trout are the juveniles here called truite bleue they have an average of 8 to 12 inch and are great catch for a shore lunch.

 

A good 5 to 7 weight fly rod matched with a good strong fly reel filled with backing and a dry or intermediate fly line is all you will need to test your angling skills against the elusive sea run brook trout. Popular wet flies for this river are black ghost, balou special, hornberg special, sparkled whore, mudlapin, mice patterns, magog smelt, north shore smelt, wolly bugger, egg sucking leech, sculpin imitation, black nose dace and the famous zonker rabbit strip muddler  .  For dry flies you will need various bombers, bugs, green machine, black wulff, white wulff and madam x, Joliette hopper, various wulff dries, classic mayflies, elk hair caddis, Jassid, delaware adams, ambiguous, march brown, spinners and the katmai slider..
