Hooked on Lake Trout

Rebecca Isbister Fishing, Highway 28, Lac La Biche Region, Lakeland Region, Northeast of Edmonton, Outdoor Adventures, Roadtrips, Winter Adventures

By: Lisa Roper What’s not to like about open-water fishing in a natural lake? If you are like me, you take every opportunity to be on the water, chasing all species of fish.
