Quetico Fall Fishing Legends
by Craig Zarley
Quetico Fall Fishing Legends is a guide for wilderness canoe travelers who want to learn simple and effective techniques for catching lake trout, smallmouth bass, and walleyes. Written by an avid wilderness angler with fifty years of travel experience in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Provincial Park, it reveals essential fishing tackle to pack for a fall canoe trip, then shows anglers where and how to catch canoe country fish during their autumn feeding frenzy. The book explains why a simple jig and plastic twister tail combination trumps more expensive and complex fishing methods as the premier lure for all canoe country fish species. Stories gleaned from dozens of fall canoe trips entertain and inform the reader of dynamic changes in Quetico’s fish populations and landscape over the past five decades. But above all, the book is a celebration of autumn, when short days and cold nights set the forest ablaze with color and fishing is at its best.
