Everything You Need to Know About Lake Ontario, Ontario Fishing

Lake Ontario might be the smallest of the great lakes, but it is certainly still great. Still in the top 15 lakes in the world by size - Lake Ontario houses tons of fish that are ripe fo the catching. Come for the king salmon.

What to Catch in Lake Ontario

Due to the size of the lake and the amount of ground to cover - many anglers choose to troll the lake in the warmer months to cover more ground and search for trout and salmon, which can both reach mammoth sizes. You can also catch walleye, smallmouth bass, pike, and musky if those are more your speed.

Key things to keep in mind are bait, water temperature, and depth of your lures. Many guides use downriggers to help them lower their bait to reach the fish, or otherwise can use divers and other weights.
