Details:After catching only one fish on the St. John, my guide suggested that we go to Square Lake if we wanted to catch more fish. On this occasion, my grandfather decided to come along too. We met at the Cross Lake boat dock and drove to and through the thoroughfare to get to Square Lake. Once we got out to Square Lake, we drove around until we reached deeper water so we could start trolling. We put out three rods with baitfish-like spinners and three fly rods with wet flies. After about ten minutes, the fish started coming fast and furious. The first fish were mainly salmon, although there was one trout. They were only hitting the spinners until my grandfather hooked a good salmon on a fly. The action then died down, but they started hitting again about an hour later, this time on the flies. It was absolute madness! I can't think of much else to say, we were hooking up every 5-10 minutes, nothing huge, but decent sized trout and salmon. Sorry for being really close to the camera in some pictures, there were 3 of us on board and the boat was small. We fished until the bite died at about 3:00 pm, and we ended up with 21 fish. The fish were mostly trout and salmon, and of course, a few perch and fallfish, or as they're called up here "crap fish". This is hands down some of the best fishing I've ever done. If you ever want to come out to Square Lake, make sure to venture out with an experienced guide because it's hard to get to and easy to get lost out there. Definitely going to come back here when I can, and I hope to catch some bigger ones next time.
