The Sutton River is world reknown for its abundance of those beautiful trophy brookies. You will have the opportunity to catch both native and sea-run speckle trout in this river. A real treat!
Starting off on Hawley lake, where you can also fish for lake trout, you will make your way into the Hudson Bay lowlands, through Polar Bear provincial park. The float trip takes at least 7 days. You will find yourself paddling some of the most clean and clear waters offered this far north. With no rapids nor white water to battle, the Sutton is a great river if you’re looking for a place to concentrate on the fishing rather than the canoeing. Its crystal clear waters and pebble bottom allows you to see the trout as they race beneath the canoe. It is not uncommon to reel in close to 100 fish daily. 3-5 lbs brookies on fly rods or spinning reels. All you need to know is to get big tackle and strong tackle. Single barbless hooks are required. We strongly recommend to purchase a conservation licence for this trip. Having a few for dinner and the experience of catching them is more than enough to complete this amazing Far North adventure.
