Captain Brian here and I am happy to share my knowledge and experience with you about trout fishing on Lake Ontario. While salmon may be the most popular fish in the lake, trout fishing is also a fantastic option for anglers looking for a challenge and a chance to catch some great fish.
Lake Ontario is home to several species of trout, including lake trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout. Each species has its own unique characteristics and requires different techniques and equipment to catch. All of which Fatal Attraction and Captain Brian Edwards possess!
How we catch them!
One of the most effective techniques for catching trout 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 uses different techniques and a vast history and decades of experience help in accomplishing this. We use state of the art equipment which helps us to find the fish and we are always following the latest info on the fish, their depth and what they are after.
When it comes to bait, trout are known to be attracted to a variety of options, including spoons, plugs, and flies. It’s important to experiment with different colors and patterns to see what the fish are biting on.
Another important factor to consider when trout fishing in Lake Ontario is the time of year. Trout are typically more active in the spring and fall, when the water is cooler and the fish are feeding more heavily. During the summer months, trout may be deeper in the water and more difficult to catch. Did you know that Lake Ontario has a depth in some spots up to about 300 feet? We fish shallow and deep to trip those lines and land those lunkers!
It’s also important to be aware of local regulations and conservation efforts when fishing for trout in Lake Ontario. Each species of trout has its own set of regulations and catch limits, and it’s important to follow these rules to help preserve the fishery for generations to come.
