Last year, the fishing was down a little at Port Hope, the same as other places on Lake Ontario. My average catch was down about 1 ½ fish per trip. The Salmon were the fish that seemed to come and go all summer. Rainbows were fairly steady and we had a good catch of Brown Trout. The Salmon were larger and all caught on a fly behind a Pro-Troll flasher with the EChip.We had 5 over 28 LB. and a picture of the largest 28.82 LB. is on my Photo Gallery Page. http://www.chasenfish.com/pages/gallery2008.htm
I am predicting the Salmon fishing this year will be like the years before and lots of Rainbows available. Will be starting earlier this year in Port Hope to take advantage of the mid June fishing. Over the last few years some of our best fishing has been in June and the first part of July.
Rates this year will stay the same as last year. To check them out go to my Rates Page. Also there check out the Great Ontario Salmon Derby. As of right now you will be entered in the derby with your charter fee. http://www.chasenfish.com/pages/rates.htm
Purchased a new 2009 18 foot Alaskan by Lund with a 60 HP. 4 stroke Mercury. This boat will be used on the St. Lawrence River so we can fish places the big boat was too large for. There is a picture of it on the Fishing Reports Page for Sept. 2008.
The web site is being updated when info becomes available, so check back regularly. Also, the Fishing Reports page I will try and keep updated weekly when I start fishing along with a picture. http://www.chasenfish.com/pages/reports.htm
Have been receiving inquires for charters already, but remember if you had a charter last year on a weekend you get first chance this year for that date. Phone early to reserve your date.
Transport Canada still requires all charter boats to meet certain safety standards and be inspected when possible. This is for your protection on the water. I have been inspected and have a certificate on my boat to show it has been done. Copy of it on the Charter Info page. http://www.chasenfish.com/pages/charter_info.htm
. If you plan on taking a charter remember to ask if he has been inspected and ask to see his decal to prove it.
