When it comes to salmon fishing in Lake Ontario, there are a few key things to keep in mind. The best time to fish for salmon is typically from late spring through early fall, with peak season occurring in July and August. During this time, the salmon are feeding heavily and are more active for landing on the boat. Our charter service begins in the early season in the month of April and continues late into the fall!
What’s the secret?
Well, there’s really no specific answer. One of the most effective techniques for catching salmon in Lake Ontario is trolling. This involves dragging lures or bait behind the boat at a slow speed, typically between 2 and 3 miles per hour. The key is to vary your speed and depth until you find what the fish are biting on. Fatal Attraction has the in-depth knowledge, expertise and equipment to not only find the fish, but get them into the boat!
Another important factor to consider when salmon fishing in Lake Ontario is the type of bait you use. Salmon are known to be attracted to bright colors, so lures with bright colors or flashy patterns are often the most effective. Popular bait options include spoons, plugs, and flies. Captain Brian keeps up to date and on-top of the most effective hot spot fishing areas as well as what bait the fish are moving on. This way, we can offer you the chance of a lifetime to catch those salmon that you’re looking for.
Key information to keep in mind!
It’s also important to be aware of local regulations and conservation efforts when fishing for salmon in Lake Ontario. The lake is home to several species of salmon, including Chinook, Coho, and Atlantic salmon, and each has its own set of regulations and catch limits. Additionally, it’s important to practice catch-and-release whenever possible to help preserve the fishery for future generations. We’ve got you covered, Captain Brian knows all the rules, regulations and laws, all we ask is that you comply with them.
