Watch this great clip to get you pumped up about fly fishing for giant lake trout at Scott Lake Lodge. Seeing a 40″ torpedo chase and eat your fly in 2′ of water will be a memory that lasts a lifetime. Then the fight starts!
How to catch lake trout shallow:
We have our best success targeting the windward side of spawning reefs in the pre-spawn time. Whistlers and Clouser minnows on an 8-10 wt rod and intermediate sink line. Often getting your fly down to 3-5′ quickly allows for a FAST sporadic retrieve…just the kind that triggers lake trout. Cast, fast strips and watch your fly for follows. Don’t ever stop stripping, the trout will quickly lose interest. Often tucking the rod under your arm and stripping with two hands can make chasers into biters. No make sure you are not standing on your line! The fight is incredible.
