- The Trent River has the best whitefish run
of Lake Ontario streams. The run usually peaks near the end of October. Most people
fish at Number 1 Dam in Trenton.
- Trent River. There are two parking lots on
either side of the dam. The one situated on the main road to the west, is located right at
the canal exit. If you park here you have to pay, and walk down the canal for about 5-10
minutes. On the east side of the dam, there's a bunch of factories, and a gov't parking
lot. Here you're a stone's throw away from the river.
- Try jigs in the 1/8 to1/4 ounce range with the smallest
hooks you can find and a matching small white or yellow curly tail or shad style trailer.
These fish will also take roe, yarn flies, and most flies you would use for steelhead.
Just rig them up under a float and fish them just as you would for bows. Make sure your
offering is as close to the bottom as possible.
