Spring fishing has been very good with consistent limits of trout being caught on just about every charter. The shallow water bass bite has been consistent as well. The Lake George water is starting to warm and the thermocline is setting up. When this happens, the trout will start migrating to their deep water hangouts. This first push of fish into these deeper waters is one of my favorite times to fish. The fish tend to move in big schools and the larger fish seem to be the first to arrive. This means big fish and lots of them. Mid to late- June is a magical time to be on the water, with little boating traffic, nice weather, and lots of big fish . You can see why it’s my favorite fishing month.
If you have been considering a Lake George fishing charter for trout and salmon, do yourself a favor and book one for this month. You won’t be disappointed. As we head into July, the bass will also start to move out of the shallows and school up on the rock piles and humps throughout the lake. An evening bass charter can produce lots of action and is a great way to introduce a child to fishing.
Several charter boats on the lake have three and four- hour trips available in the evening and charge on a per- person basis. No matter which type of fishing you’d like to experience, you’ll find it all good on the “Queen of America’s Lakes”, Lake George. Enjoy a few pictures form the Highliner Charter boat this past week. Hope to see you on the water!
