Nonacho Lake Fishing is a “catch and release” fishing camp on fish over 10 pounds. For the first 6 years of lake trout’s life they grow at a rate of 2 to 4 inches per year. However, as they mature their growth rate slows, often to an inch or less per year beyond age 7 or 8. Wherever self-sustaining populations of lake trout occur fishery management emphasizes protecting these wild fish resources.
Be sure to review the Fishing Regulations in the resources below to know your limit and size of lake trout fish that are perfect for savouring for shore lunch! Bon Appetit!
