Lake Ontario Giant Salmon, Steelhead & Trout

Lake Ontario is the last link in the great lakes before entering the ocean by way of the St Lawrence Seaway. To successfully fish Lake Ontario start early in the spring right after ice out with shore line trolling for spring time brown trout. As the water warms we move on to one of the best times on the lake for Salmon.

In the spring everything comes alive and the salmon are on the move and hungry. We only fish a few miles offshore for these silver fish. When the Lake warms up and the temperature starts to set up a thermo cline we often move further offshore. This kind of fishing offers us a mix bag of King Salmon, Big Steelhead and Lake Trout that will last all summer.

When the fall approaches the King’s begin to stage up before their run up the Niagara River. At this time of the year they are at their heaviest weight and put up a good fight, they get really mean for some reason and it’s a lot of fuFishing Charter Lake Ontario

King Salmon: May-September

In the spring, we hit the water trolling for these silver giants of Lake Ontario. The method that works best for King’s is to troll with an assortment of different spoons, flashers, and flies. There is no better sound than one of the rods takes a hit and the drag starts screaming and the pole doubles up with a big boy on.

I fish the Lake all summer and into the fall. The fall is when the salmon stage at the mouth of the Niagara River, before running up the river to spawn.

World Class Smallmouth Bass and Walleye Destination-Catch the Adventure

Lake Erie Fishing Charters

Lake Erie Fishing Charters, it’s been written about in every Bass magazine in the world. Sparky’s Lake Erie Fishing Charters take you to world class Smallmouth. Lake Erie has also been home to a number of Bassmaster. That is because of the HUGE Smallmouth bass and Walleye fishing.

The fishing starts in the spring as soon as we have ice out. The first part of our season is artificial lures only and you are allowed to keep one bass, twenty inches or longer. I personally do not keep any bass. If I do catch a trophy, I take a couple of measurements and have a mount made. It’s a win win for everyone. I have a great mount and the fish with the good genes stays in the lake.

The month of May is a great time for size and numbers because as we move into the warmer weather the fish move off to deeper water. I fish many off the off shore reefs and humps that hold Smallies throughout the season. The regular season opens the third Saturday in June.

Also in Lake Erie in the spring, we have great perch fishing and as we move into June the walleye begin to show up. Everyone loves to catch walleyes.

I fish for them a little different than most people, I drift or power troll for them with light tackle and worm harness. I don’t troll with downriggers or Jet divers or dipseys, even on Lake Ontario. I troll for Salmon the same way all the time and as you can see from our photo gallery my way works.

Sparky’s Lake Erie Fishing Charters offers something for everyone and is a great place for the seasoned angler, the beginner or just to take the kids out for a family fun trip.
