What month is best for fishing Lake Ontario?

- The best months to fish Lake Ontario is from April to June. However, this fishery is fantastic year round. In the summer months we fish on the Lake for Salmon, Steelhead, Brown trout and more. Then closer to the fall we follow these fish into the tributaries where they go to spawn. Our favorite Lake Ontario tributary to fish is the Salmon River.

After the Salmon Run begins Steelhead and Brown Trout will follow behind them, eager to feast on the eggs that the Salmon lay.
