In one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world, swims one of the largest trout species on the planet. These fish grow to epic proportions and have been swimming the frigid Arctic waters since World War II. Capable of swallowing anything they can fit in their mouth, these fish reek havoc on anything that swims within their reach.
Unique to Great Bear, these fish sport metallic green and blue along their back, giving them the appearance of a shark when viewed from the boat. That combined with their massive heads and world record size, make these fish the stuff of legend.
A big brown trout is a wary adversary in its home waters. They know every rock and current seam in their section of the stream and fooling one can prove to be utterly frustrating. Their mood changes by the minute and can go from chasing other trout to delicately sipping tiny midges or mayflies within only a few minutes. But with stealth, patience, and time spent learning their habits, you can fool the wary resident brown and be a worthy contestant to the brown’s game. It is the challenge of catching brown trout in their home waters that keeps me going back. They provide the highest highs and the lowest lows.
