3 cool Canadian fishing getaways to check out this summer

Fishing getaways: Summer 2019

Take a trip for NB bronzebacks, Ontario’s backcountry trout or Winnipeg’s wild channel cats

SPEDNIC LAKE

Expect to catch good numbers of feisty three-pound-plus smallmouth bass on Spednic Lake, lying on the border between New Brunswick and Maine. The bass fare so well because of their protein-rich diet of rainbow smelt and landlocked alewives. Topwater poppers, #4 Mepps spinners and tube jigs work well, and if you get tired of catching bronzebacks, you can always go after the Spednic’s chain pickerel.
