Lake Trout Fishing Season
During the winter and spring, large areas of Eagle Lake have cold enough water to support lake trout. Beautiful fish can be caught near the camp in shallow water, opening the possibility for fly fishermen to have an ecstatic experience here in the spring.
The first warming of summer, though, sends them into the deepest parts of the lake seeking the cold water they prefer. In the depths, they cruise rocky shorelines and points, or narrow areas of current, looking for schools of baitfish. The warmer it gets, the deeper they go, requiring special knowledge and techniques to get baits down to them. If you want to target them at this time of year, you really need one of the pro guides at Andy Myers Lodge to teach you about summer lake trout fishing.
Trout spawn in the fall, so they are looking to move to shallow structures as soon as the water gets down to about 50 degrees. To protect them, the Lake Trout season closes on September 30 and reopens again on January 1st, when the ice fishing is world class. If the water temperature drops before the fall season closes, you can experience fantastic shallow water casting with numerous fish chasing your lures, flashing and darting until you hook up. It is the kind of peak fishing experience we can show you at Andy Myers Lodge, so contact us today to book your lake trout fishing trip in Canada!
