Fishing Confederation Lake in Ontario
Fishing on Confederation Lake
With large populations of trophy pike and lake trout, make sure you bring tackle heavy enough to withstand a good fight. The trout are deep most of the time so bring tackle than can get you down to the depths where they feed. Spoons, large jigs and trolling with downriggers all work well. Bring big spoons, spinnerbaits and even topwater baits for casting at the huge pike that inhabit the back bays and rocky points.
