I’m Captain Brian, your Lake Ontario Fishing Charter Captain for Steelhead, Salmon & Trout, I am happy to share my knowledge and experience with you about steelhead fishing. Steelhead are a type of rainbow trout that are known for their incredible fighting ability and acrobatic jumps, making them a popular target for anglers. Steelhead are some serious fighters when it comes to fishing. Many times, steelhead are fished from streams and rivers. But we do occasionally land them too!
Some insider knowledge
One of the most effective techniques for catching steelhead in Lake Ontario is drift fishing. This involves using a float and bait to drift along the current, allowing the bait to move naturally and attract the attention of the fish. Steelhead are known to be attracted to a variety of bait options, including spawn bags, worms, and artificial lures.
Another important factor to consider when steelhead fishing is the time of year. Steelhead are typically more active in the fall and winter months, when the water is cooler and the fish are feeding more heavily. During the summer months, steelhead may be deeper in the water and more difficult to catch. We do fish deep and we follow the fish and we are always right on the fish, so don’t worry!
Be sure you’re within the law!
It’s also important to be aware of local regulations and conservation efforts when fishing for steelhead in New York. Steelhead are a popular sport fish and are subject to catch limits and other regulations to help preserve the fishery for future generations.
