Hey guys I went up yesterday to a pond in the parking lot of fisher lakes not the birdge one its a pond before that in a parking lot caught a nice 11 1/2" Brook Trout, and then this morning a good 13" Brook trout in Lily Lake !?!?! I couldnt beleive it that I actually finally pulled a trout out of thier I was thier around 6- 6:30 am this morning and grabbed it thier were just jumping all over the places so tomorrow morning is a fly fishing morning !
Any suggestion on color varitions and what type of fly to use right now on lakes for trout ? All is appreciated thanks !

The 2012 NB fishing guide says they stocked both of those lakes last year with brook trout. Lily Lake got 2010 and Fisher got 1110. Great to hear that some are still in there. If they are feeding on the surface look around for a hatch and try to match it with whatever you have in your fly box. Light Cahill, Irresitable Adams and Adams flies work well for me when they are taking dry flies. Good luck.

Im told the trout in those lakes taste shitty. Never had em myself though. I still think its a waste to stalk those lakes.

Then don't eat them, put them back and catch them again later when they get bigger.
As for flies, I beleive they were jumping because of may flies. Just get you some light brown colored may flies from Canadian Tire or Walmart for cheapo's, or go to Doiron Sports Excellence for better stuff.

Serious, I've been hitting the Hammond pretty hard, and the run has not hit yet. I assumed since "spring" was here early that the run would be early as well, but I figure it's right on schedule to hit in the next couple of weeks.

As for flies, I'm not exactly a lake fisherman so I don't know if it's any different from a river or not, but I'd look for something like "pale evening duns". I'd think "royal wulfs" would work well there too. Basically, just look for whatever bugs are flying/swimming/walking and falling into the water and tie on a fly that resembles that, and you're golden. Did you notice any may flies when you were there yesterday? Did you notice any bugs crawling on the bottom on rocks? Were there any little miller butterflies fluttering by? Stuff like that. And if nothing else works, throw on a buck bug. You can't go wrong with a buck bug! Especially with trout. It's my go-to fly! I like mine made with natural deer hair and a black tail with grizzly hackle. Bumblebees work great too! In fact, I'd recommend you buy some and try them right off the bat! ("bumble bees" look like a little bee, tied with a black stripe, yellow stripe, and another black stripe. They also have white wings usually, and may or may not have a tail and/or hackle. Canadian tire sells them in their fly section for cheap).

Muddlers should work too
Muddlers working the other day, brook trout, one guy said he caught a sea trout but it looked like regular trout to me, I think different people have a different opinion on what classifies as a sea trout, what ive always called sea trout are very silver with black speckles and faint color and are actually sea run Brown trout not speckles. Maybe speckles do run out into the sea I dont know, but they lose color once they get bigger so I dont know how one says a particular speckled trout is sea run or not. When I go out im looking for Sea run Brown trout, best luck I had was on the River Phillip some years ago and got one out Salt springs last year, clearly looked nothing like a speckled trout.

What do you guys consider a sea trout?

trout that havent been in the river as long are usually that silver color,the speckles are there but fainter and are always nice and pink inside. The resident trout and trout you get in ponds will be darker with almost a forest green top alot of the time and orange colored belly. As far as brook trout are concerned.
Ive only caught one brown, in the dunarvon. nice gold color with black spots

sea run brown trout are very rare here, i have never caught one. there should be a rare few in the sj along with a couple nearby rivers and streams. they get some on the gulf coast but i have never seen them. browns in the big lakes can take on the coloring of sea run browns.
there are some steelhead (sea run rainbow trout), mostly in the shepody area but also the same spots as possible sea run browns.
99% of the time, in nb sea run trout are brookies.
