Lake Ontario

Attempting to troll for trout and salmon on an enormous fishery like Lake Ontario can be a bit overwhelming. The lake covers 7,320 square miles and has 726 miles of shoreline. Knowledge of this big body of water and where the schools of fish migrate, is key to success here. Methods and techniques are extremely important as well. It is often wise, for safety as well as fishing success, to hire a fishing guide or charter. They have the equipment, knowledge and experience to increase your odds of a safe and successful day many times over.
