If the pike is the godfather of Lake Clear fish than the lake trout is surely king. These tasty fish of the char family were once the top sport fish in the region. However, years of overfishing and habitat loss have removed them from their most favoured position. This trend is now being reversed. With the introduction of walleye to aid in habitat redevelopment and the institution of special conservation regulations, this species is making a comeback.
Most of the season these fish are found in sixty foot or more of water and extremely difficult to catch. They are a true test of an angler's skill and dedication. However, those in the know have been known to find them lurking in the shallows or near the surface in the early morning.
