Our camp is located at the headwaters of the Umcolcus Stream and adjacent to the Umcolcus Deadwater. This area is best fished for Native Brook Trout earlier in the season with cooler water temperatures and around deeper spring holes later in the season. This area falls under general fishing laws and is easily fished with children and the family. Guests may also fly fish, spin, or troll with live bait or artificial lures. The best means of fishing are with canoes, kayaks or walking the nearby streams. On average the fish range from 6" to 14" and occasionally a lucky fisherman can bring in a trout of a lifetime.
