Lake Ontario Lake Trout were on the slow decline going into the 80’s, but with stocking programs in place and programs to control the Sea Lamprey, they 30 yrs. later they have made a big comeback.
If you fish the western-end of Lake Ontario, especially within range of the Niagara River current effect, you know that the Lake Trout fishing can be excellent all year long.
Some of the largest Lakers though are caught further east off Toronto and even as far east as nearing the mouth of the St. Lawrence River.
Jeremy Patey boated two trophy lake trout working the waters off Toronto, ON. The above fish weighed in at just over 25 lb.
This Laker pushed the scales at 21 lb., both true trophies!
