The North Head Trail winds from the top of Signal Hill down and around to “The Battery”.
The trail is a combination of steps and paths.
When we got to the end (we knew in advance that the loop was closed due to construction/repair) and had to go back UP!
We stopped at all the red chairs to rest and at one set we were able to see whales again!
After the walk I decided I wanted a new fishing experience. So I headed out to Butter Pot Provincial Park well known for having brook trout in its lakes. This pristine park is only 30 minutes from downtown St. Johns!
While I was told where to fish by a spin fisher (lakes) I thought I’d see if I could find something more fly fishing friendly.
First cast, last cast, brook trout a plenty! Also lots of black flies!
The two branches leading into the lake had quite the drop to them so finding the fish lies was a challenge. But this is the kind of fishing I love!
