Chinook, Coho and Rainbow action heating-up on Lake Ontario.

Posted on June 7th, 2011

[nggallery id=518]I had the opportunity yesterday to fish with Aldo Nava of Niagara Fishing Adventures and a couple of friends Frank and Luke from the Wikwemikong community on Manitoulin Island, ON..  We headed out from Port Dalhousie around 7:30am and dropped out lines in in about 80′ of water and headed north to the 200′ depths.  Conditions were calm and warm.  The water was a little stained and there was debris scattered as far as we could see which was the result of strong winds a couple of days earlier.  Within 1/2 hr. we had our first two fish on and Frank & Luke landed them to start out day-off.  We fished downriggers with stackers, Dipsey Divers/Flashers/steel-line and a long copper flat-line.  Both spoons and flashers/flies worked great.  As far as gear goes, we were running Rapala Magnum & RSC Trolling rods along with RSC & Hydros trolling, counter reels with Sufix 832 braid.

We ended up landing about 5-Chinooks, 1-Coho and a nice rainbows.  We lost about 5-other fish.  Three were definitely Chinooks in the 20 lb. range.
