September Lake Trout Fishing on Lake Simcoe

For the last several years I have taken much of September off as a fishing vacation, and as crazy and disruptive as 2020 has been, I was determined to normalize matters by keeping this annual tradition alive. Although I usually make a couple major trips up north, I still always end up doing a lot of fishing locally in Simcoe County and especially on my home lake for the past 35 years … Lake Simcoe. Of course, for those who have read my articles over the last 35 years, it comes as no surprise that I tend to focus on my favorite open water species – BASS!

Another Fishing Trip To Algoma Country In Northern Ontario

In 2019 I made both a spring and fall bass fishing trip to Algoma Country; that beautiful region of northern Ontario around Sault Ste Marie and west to the Spanish River and northern shores of Lake Huron.

A Return Bass Fishing Trip to Algoma Country in Northern Ontario

Fall 2019: It was our last morning fishing beautiful northern Lake Huron out from Blue Heron Resort on the Spanish River.  The rocky terrain was quite similar to that of this Great Lake’s Georgian Bay way to the south where fishing partner Doug Wadden and I have each spent far more time; yet in some respects it’s even more rugged and displays far less sign of human activity. Every morning we would be blessed with an eagle sighting followed by tremendous success catching smallmouth bass.
