What We Catch?

    Brown Trout

    The Brown Trout is Lake Ontario's most abundant trophy. Large numbers of Browns averaging 2 - 10 lbs. are available from late April through mid August. Our July and August trout fishery differs from that in May and June in that we are fishing further from shore with tackle that is a little bit larger for bigger fish.

    Lake Trout

    Lake Ontario is one of the top trophy Lake Trout Fisheries in the country, each year producing many fish in the 18 - 20 plus pound range. Great Lake Trout fishing can be had from May - August with the added benefit of the Laker limit being 2 fish per person which is not part of your 3 fish per person Trout and Salmon limit.

    Salmon season on Lake Ontario is in full swing July, August and September. Fight with a couple of these powerful fish and you will see why Lake Ontario is so famous. Chinook Salmon ( kings ) average 15 - 25 lbs. with some fish being in the mid 30's or more. We also have a large number of Coho Salmon (silvers).

    Our 2 days were just wonderful! We just weighed all of the filets from the fish we caught, it came to over 16 pounds! Captains Robin and Todd are terrific, their experience and knowledge made our trip quite enjoyable. We laughed together as if we were old friends.

    I took my Wife for her first guided fishing trip with these guys. She caught her first Steelhead with them and had enough fun that we returned this year again. We had a great time and we again caught steelhead on our drift trip. Best guides and trip we have been on will definitely be back again with them. Highly recommend them for anyone ever going to the area.

    These guys are top notch. I've fished the lake and river with a lot of different people over the years and they are the best. They are always great fun and on the fish. I'd never go with anyone else.
