Trout Fishing Tips
Fly fishing for Trout in the Yukon is most successful in the spring between the middle of May to the end of June. If you see Cisco, you can bet there will be a few big Lake Trout following them so throw your black and white, or dark blue and white sinking streamer into the school of cisco and make your streamer look wounded. After June you will have to go deeper if you want to catch Lake trout. Fish off of drop offs and shoals. Trolling works on the fly! Don’t troll to fast and use your motor to control the depth of your fly. Dark overcast days seem more productive than clear days for Trout.

Trout Spin Cast Fishing Gear
Spin Cast Fishing for Lake Trout is similar to Fly Fishing in that you should try to imitate whatever the Trout are feeding on at the time. The main advantage of the Spin cast system is that it is more conducive to deep water fishing and trolling. With practice you will be able to get your lure to specific depths.
Fishing tackle for Yukon spin cast fishing trips includes one medium weight-spinning rod each with ten to fifteen pound line on it. Fish finders are not a necessity, however a portable one can be useful.
