Please be advised that the current lake trout and splake season ends on September 15, 2019. It is imperative that trout are not caught after this date as the trout will be busy spawning during the fall.
Fertilized trout eggs will adhere to rocks, cobble and gravel and continue to develop through the winter under the ice. The eggs hatch approximately in mid-April and early May. Newly hatched fry remain hidden in the gravel and survive on their yolk-sac for several weeks. Once the fry become mobile, they seek out deeper waters to avoid predatory fish including bass, perch and larger lake trout.
During the season, lake trout and splake measuring a minimum 45cm (or 17.75″) may be kept. There is a daily maximum of 2 fish per licence holder.
Additionally, the bass season continues until November 30th, 2019, with a 6 fish daily maximum.
