"SeaDawg Charters"Fishing Lake Ontario forTrout and Salmon

Sport,Tournament,& Derby fishing on Lake Ontario for Trophy Trout & Salmon!

A little about the fishing

Lake Ontario has a World Class fishery and offers a broad variety of fishing opportunities for the sportfisherman. Some of the cold water species that abound in the lake and that are of particular interest to many anglers looking for a Lake Ontario trophy are: Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout, Steelhead Trout  and LakeTrout. These are the fish that we concentrate our efforts on. There are also good numbers of Walleye, Pickerel, Pike, Bass, Perch and other fish.

(April, May, early June) The spring time offers some of  Lake Ontario's best Brown Trout fishing. "Ice Out" signals the beginning of the Brown Trout bite!  At this time shore line, planer board fishing can be very effective for Browns. The Salmon can usually be found out in a little deeper water.

(June /July ) In the early to mid-summer time frame the waters of Lake Ontario start to warm up and the fish move into deeper water, and we turn to more controlled depth fishing (down riggers and dipsey divers). The mature Salmon at this  time of year are usually in the 15 to 25 pound range. Some really nice Lake Ontario Brown trout (15-20 pound) are also taken at this time of the year.

(Late July/August/September) In the late summer to early fall Lake Ontarios' salmon fishing comes into it's own. The mature salmon are staging for their spawning runs up Lake Ontario's many streams and rivers. These fish can be in the 30 to 35+ pound range. Steelhead and brown trout follow the salmon during these spawning runs and are caught at this time as well!

(September/October) In the fall  Lake Ontarios' water temperature starts to cool down and we start fishing the top water with the planer boards. The weather at this time of year can be very unpredicatble and it is harder to pick a good day to get on the lake, but if you can hit it right  the steelhead fishing can be phenomenal!
