Spring in Lake Ontario

April - June: Spring fishing at its best. The sring sun warms the inshore waters which draws the baitfish near shore to spawn and the gamefish follow to feed on them.

Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Coho's and King's all move within a half mile of shore and are caught in large numbers. A great trip after the long winter!!!!

May spring King fishing off the Niagara Bar is unlike anywhere else in the Lake Ontario with limit catches of King from 10-25 pounds common.

Spring trips leave the marina in the village of Youngstown, NY.
