Chinook Smelt & Alewife meals.

Posted on May 19th, 2022

Our good friend Jamie Shepherd recently fished for Lake Ontario Salmon near the mouth of the Niagara River using the Rapala Scatter Rap Tail Dancer lures in water averaging 30′ deep.

Partially digested alewife and smelt confirm the reason why Lake Ontario salmon are feeding in-shore.

He confirms that both Chinook and Coho salmon are still feeding on alewife and smelt that are coming off the shorelines.

Jamie kept a few of his fish to enjoy on the grill and if cleaned properly removing all the fat from the belly and back, they are delicious!
