Hi Italo, frenchmans bay is mostly frozen over now but the ice is not thick enough for fishing, the channel however is not frozen. What do you think i could catch in the channel at this time of year and what lures do you recomend? Thank you.Posted on January 23rd, 2016
You can catch brown trout and steelhead casting in the channel that goes out in the lake and also casting off the beach. There are lot’s of brown trout & steelhead that are attracted to the warm-water outflow of the Pickering Hydro Generating Stations. Even though most of those fish are feeding in the outflows, some do cruise off the beach and head in and out of the channel.
Good lures to cast are 1/4 oz. spoons and Vibrax #3 spinners. You best chance of hooking fish there is when the water is clear, not muddied-up.
