I’ve found the most productive spinner patterns for Algonquin Park to be gold and Black Fury Yellow Dot. For your rod and reel combo, go light, and use a six-pound-test fluorocarbon leader. Shown here is a #1 Mepps with a “Rainbow Trout” blade pattern. Remember, on extended interior trips, it’s important to bring backup spoons and spinners, particularly #2 spinners—the most commonly used size. Losing lures is inevitable and you can’t just pop by the tackle shop to pick up more when you’re in the backcountry.
