I am planning a short 4 day trip to Booth Lake in Algonquin that coincides with the last few days of Lake Trout season (which I believe closes out September 30th.) Although I know the lake I have not fished for Lakers there and would be appreciative of any info that I could get regarding where on the lake and how deep it is best to fish in late September. I do have a topo map of the lake and note that the northern section is very deep but at the time of the year I’ll be there I imagine the trout will be in the 30/35 depth range. At any rate anything that anyone is willing to share would be most appreciated. Thanks.

In ancient times, I used to do creel census on brook trout lakes... the catch really picked up during the last several days in Sept as the surface water cooled off. Lake trout might react the same way - IIRC their preferred temp is about 10-12C, brook trout coming inshore a little earlier with water a little warmer.

The warmest water I've caught lake trout in shallow inshore spots has been at 15C, that was spring fishing. I haven't fished Booth lake myself, it seems there are monster pike being caught there now and Sept is prime time for pike.

Try being on the water at first light or an hour or so before dusk. Rises may provide you with an indication of their location. So far the lake has only yielded smallies and pike for us.
