This dweller of cold water roams many of the area's lakes. After you've tasted this fish broiled over the coals of an open fire you will see why this member of the char family is so sought after.


Lake Trout can be readily caught all year long. As an angler you have to keep in mind that Lake Trout prefer water temperatures in the high 40's to low 50 degree range.

The time to catch Lake Trout in shallow water is in early Spring or late Fall when the water temperatures are colder. 

During the summer you will have to cast or troll baits 60 to 100 feet deep on average. The most productive lures for catching Lake Trout include spoons, heavy spinner baits, Rattletraps, or Bucktail jigs.
