Algonquin Park Trout Season Opens
Ontario 60, Ontario K0J 2M0
Spring is a very active time of year for anglers and fish as ice melts, water flow increases and popular sport fish seasons open. Lake trout is a spring time favourite for avid and occasional anglers alike. April ice-out in Algonquin attracts anglers from all over for the opportunity to catch a spring “laker”. Algonquin’s unique designation as a fish sanctuary protects this fishery and restricts all angling prior to the fourth Saturday in April. This management practice ensures a strong and healthy population of lake trout in Algonquin Provincial Park.
Other species of trout like brook trout or rainbow trout can also be targeted in Algonquin and in cold water lakes and rivers across much of Ontario.
