Trophy Lake Trout Caught in 2014!

Our clear cold Canadian lakes are ideal habitats for huge lakers!


Ontario boasts nearly 25% of the world's lake trout population. Lakers are found on many of the lakes in Ontario's Sunset Country. Lake trout like to swim in water temperatures around 52-53F or colder so how you'll be fishing for lakers depends on the on the time of the year.

In early summer and the last half of September, they are often found in shallow water and are fun to cast spoons and plugs at. You can troll a lure just under the surface of the water and catch lake trout.

In summer when the water warms the trout go much deeper and are often caught using downriggers. In the winter trout is often a favourite of the ice fisherman. Trout season starts January 1.

Lake trout can live a long time and it's important to release all trophy fish back into the water.

Here are some of the biggest lakers I have seen. They have all been caught and released.
