Lake Superior Provincial Park

Lake Superior Provincial Park is 1600 sq. km. (618 sq. mi.) of northern Ontario wilderness along the shore of Lake Superior - the largest lake in the world. The park is a diverse landscape of forested hills, clear lakes, streams and rivers, and a Lake Superior shoreline with features ranging from the 200m (650 ft) cliffs of Old Woman Bay to the 3 km (2 mile) long beach at Agawa Bay.

The Story behind the picture
One of the Park`s greatest qualities is it`s peacefulness as human habitation is kept at a minimum and nature rules the land. Many trails departing from highway 17 allow for further exploration to wilderness areas that bring hidden treasures of peace for your body and soul. Here you have to drive in for a couple of miles, then walk in for a mile, and then take your canoe or kayak that you carried with you, and then finally go fishing or enjoy the scenery. There are fish (trout), but you cannot use any type of motor to help you. It is rather quiet and you may find yourself on the lake with no others. Picture is of Lake Gamitagama.

Some fishing tips.
Lake Trout are found only in Lake Superior and in several of the park’s cold, deep lakes, including Mijinemungshing, Treeby, Old Woman, Belanger and Gamitagama. Lake Trout usually inhabit cold waters 10-50 m (33-164 ft.) deep in the warm summer months and in cold waters 5-15 m (16-49 ft.) deep in the spring and fall. Since Lake Trout generally feed on small fish, the most successful angling techniques are deep water trolling with artificial lures, such as large, flashy spoons and wobblers or still fishing with dead minnows near the lake bottom. They will occasionally travel to warmer, shallow waters to feed, especially during the dusk to dawn period.
