Through NYS DEC and Canadian stocking efforts, and pen rearing projects at many ports along the lake there are many species of fish that we will be targeting.
Chinook(King) Salmon Steelhead(Rainbow Trout) Coho Salmon
Brown Trout Lake Trout Atlantic Salmon
The months of April and early May we are targeting the inshore waters, and the warmer runoff from the spring melt from area creeks. Brown trout,Coho, and Steelhead will predominate the catch with still a chance at the other species.
As the lake warms up during the months of May and June the lake typically sets into a transitional period. Any of the target species can be caught at this time period and we will generally be heading further from shore to find the schools of baitfish and the trout and salmon that follow them.
The Months of July and August find us targeting the mighty Chinook Salmon and acrobatic offshore Steelhead. Although the possibilities of catching the other species are still possible Kings and Steelies will usually predominate the catch.
Nearing the end of August and into September the staging salmon start making their runs to the rivers to spawn. Once again we will be focusing our time on the inshore waters chasing after the Mature Chinooks and the Brown Trout that follow. Offshore fishing for Steelhead, and immature salmon is our second option as the mature salmon make their spawning runs up the rivers.
