If you are looking for a fishing trip that you will remember for the rest of your life, join Captain Dave and his Reel Silver Charters. They specialize in introducing their clients to the mighty Lake Ontario and putting them on top of the hottest bite.

Explore some of the finest freshwater angling opportunities available anywhere in the world. You can hone your angling skills, try a new technique or two, and fill the cooler with some incredible catches.

The season begins in the middle of April and goes through September. Their spring starts with lots of Brown Trout with a few other species mixed in. June and early July are all about large Lake Trout with a few Steelhead, Salmon, and Brown Trout mixed in. From mid-July and on, you can expect to concentrate on Salmon only.

If it’s Chinook or Coho Salmon, huge Brown Trout, Steelhead, Lake Trout, or Walleye, you have come to the right place. Capt. Dave offers shorter adventures for those who don’t have too much time and full-day charters for those who want to get the water all to themselves. He operates a 27’ SportCraft that can handle up to 6 anglers and is loaded with the latest electronics and tackle.

Everything needed for trolling will be available for you to use. Just bring a valid fishing license and your choice of food and drinks.
