We’re over halfway done with the Chicago fishing season, and one thing stands out. The lake trout fishing this year has been phenomenal! Charters are limiting out almost every trip and catching some monster late trout. 10-15 lb lake trout are common, and 20 pounders are mixed in on most charters. Skyline Fishing Charters has been coming back with 100-130 pounds of fish on every trip! We are also are finding coho salmon and rainbow trout on most trips, which are usually tough to find this time of year.
Many times the fishing slows down from May-June levels when the temperature heats up in the middle of summer, but that hasn’t been the case this year. On a recent trip, we caught our limit on lake trout in an hour!
The mid-summer fishing has been great and there’s still time to book your August vacation fishing trip!
