Lake Ontario trout.

6 posts in this topic

Our rain dried up last week, so the trout are staging out front. I had a south breeze day last week, and snuck out for a couple hours. Just trolling a rapala around the channel. Constant action, browns and steelhead. It's a cool way to fish the tribs if the flow is down. you can drift and cast spoons too. This time of year, the water gets so clear, I was trolling out to 20+ ft, and you can see clear to the bottom, It's like the Bahamas. 10-15 ft looks like 3 ft. Not the greatest pics, but it's a cluster with the rod, fish, net, camera, .......

 

Here's a couple browns, and a Chrome from the morning. Conditions are looking good for a day this week too.

that sounds like a helluva lot of fun!  What's the size range of the fish you were catching?   I remember a July smallmouth fishing trip to Lake Ontario many years ago and was amazed at the clarity of the water,  seeing the bottom in 15-20' was the norm.

I always ment to bring my yak to the salmon river. I'am up there 4 times a year at least. I'am just scarred to have something on my roof that long. Seems like it would be great day though. I'll have to get over my fear.

Yeah, I keep threatening the Salmon, the Oak, the Genny, but I have a neat Trib/harbor 90 seconds from my house, usually all to myself. Might get out tomorrow. I really want to put some effort in Sept and Oct, for the kings,... next year. Cool way to do it, not many guys I know of.
