THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CATCHING OF THE WORLD RECORD SPECKLED TROUT IN THE NIPIGON RIVER BY DR. COOK OF FORT WILLIAM (now part of Thunder Bay) ONTARIO, CANADA
|Painting for display purposes. 31 and a half inch brook trout.|
Starting July 17, 2015 Nipigon is planning a three day festival. The Nipigon Historical Museum will continue and also celebrate the actual day, July 21, 1915-2015. with special people and displays.
The World Record Speckled Trout travelled much of its life and we are curious if any readers can recall a relative or friend having seen it, maybe at Sportsman Shows throughout Canada and United States of America?
