Fly Fishing for Lake Trout

Fishing for lake trout is an exhilarating experience for anglers of all skill levels. Known for their elusive nature and impressive size, lake trout are the prized catch in many North American waters.

Here are some things you have to consider: 


1. Fly Line. We used full sinking line and intermediate sinking lines to get the flies down 10-20 feet so the fish could come up and grab them 

2. Water Temperature. We noticed action when the water was between 46-49 degrees, but this varies for every location! 

3. Understand the lake you are at. The depth, time of year, where the fish eat, where the deep parts are. We used a fish finder to help us out.
