Lake Champlain spring fishing

April - May 2012

For the past 3-4 years, we've been taking advantage of the catch and release season in NY since bass is completely closed in QC until late June.  I don't have any fishing reports but I can say is that fishing Lake Champlain has been awesome again this year.  Most of the bodies of water I fish around Montreal are all extension of the St.Lawrence river therefore we are constantly trying to figure the how the fish position themselves in the current.  Lake Champlain has very little current if any and it makes it a totally different type of challenge.  This year we fished the south end of the lake for 2 days and it was really interesting to see how much warmer it was from the North end.  You drive about 2 hours to find yourself almost 2 weeks in the future in "fish time". We witnessed the full spawning season from pre-spawn to post-spawn and tried to learn as much as we could about the spawning process.
