Salmon & Trout

Out on Lake Ontario, anglers target salmon and trout from spring through fall.  In the spring, the fishing can be very good for brown trout, lake trout and steelhead as they move much shallower.  They are here in the summer too, but will be found much deeper.  The King salmon fishing gets good in the summer and it runs into September.  There are plenty of fishing charters in the area that target salmon, trout and other species of fish too.
