Many anglers headed out in the last week to get fresh air and try their luck at either catching Great Lakes tributary Steelhead or resident Brown & Brook Trout. Water temperatures in many tributaries are still cold and quite a few steelhead are still spawning in southern Ontario while others are done and have dropped-back to holding pools on their way back to the Great Lakes.
Our good friend Simeon Kubassek was out with Cohen and fishing Superior’s north-shore tributaries that are still cold which means many fish are pre-spawn and will continue to run in from Lake Superior.
More Brook Trout are also showing up in the northern rivers. In southern Ontario while some resident Brook and Brown are being caught, as water levels keep dropping and warming up a little the trout fishing will even get better.
End of May and June should be excellent month to catch all three species on artificials like small spinner, Luhr Jensen KwikFish.
And as water temps warm up more and fly anglers will be able to do well for all three species.
