Ontario Steelhead Trout Fishing

Off the mouth of the Spanish River in the deeper water of the South Channel, which is part of Lake Huron, there is excellent Steelhead Trout or Rainbow Trout fishing all year. Steelhead Trout average about 8 pounds with trophies up in the 15 pound-plus range being caught.

Many Steelhead hunters bring boats, which are geared with downriggers for the big lake. If you came for shallow fishing like Walleye or Pike and have a slow trolling boat, you can use our light-tackle deep-water fishing techniques, which are just as effective as downriggers for Steelhead.
