Fishing for Lake Trout on the Surface

It is said that the lake trout early in the spring comes into the shallows for a period of a few days when it may be taken on ordinary light surface tackle. However this may be—and the writer is inclined to believe that this period must be very short indeed and that in some lakes it does not occur at all—angling for lakers is done almost entirely by deep-trolling. Also it is a fact that the early season excursion of the lake trout to the surface waters is quite apt to take place before fishing for them may be done legally. In lakes where early fishing for lakers on the surface and in the shallows is an accomplished fact they may be taken on the fly as well as by trolling. Successful surface fishing is, however, a pretty rare thing, and it does not seem advisable to consider it here to any extent. For trolling heavy bass tackle will answer the purpose; and for fly-fishing a fly-rod suited to large stream and bass fly-fishing, say a ten-foot, seven-ounce rod, will be right. On this rod you should use forty yards of enameled line, size E, on a single-action reel. Flies dressed on sproat hooks numbers six and four will be sufficiently large, and good flies for lake trout are: royal coachman, Parmachene belle, Montreal, and silver doctor.
