Brown Trout Are It Off The Salmon River
<p>Salmon trolling on Eastern Lake Ontario was a lot tougher this week. Charters mostly targeted brown trout due to lack of king salmon. Brown trout trolling was fairly productive. Charters fished 70-90' running their riggers 10-15' off bottom. Bright colored Stinger spoons run 20-50' back worked best for our trips. Dipsy divers were productive run 180-220' back. We did manage to tangle with some king salmon Saturday on our morning charter but only landed one. The next few weeks the salmon fishing should improve as the kings start to move east towards the Salmon River. As long as brown trout continue to bite our charters will have plenty of action until the king salmon show up big time.
