  1. Went down just in town, never even gave a cast. Was choc milk, and just walking the bank I was sweating...so humid.
  2. In the Elora conservation area if its open. Follow gorge fenceline down to water and fish upstream. Some deeper holes in there that hold fish.
  3. Upper grand has been fishing terrible. So pressured, low and too warm. Both my outtings been fishless. Thats not normal, not even a dink. Talk to Rob at grand river outfitters, hes always willing to share a few tips on whats working. I would not be fishing it in these temps though.
  4. With all public gatherings, I dont care if its a concert, a parade, a park celebration there is a cost of clean up. Yes, people are pigs no doubt about it. But if its a public place its owned by the city and they share a role in keeping it clean as well. Be it by hiring summer students, or regular emptying of the trash containers. Covid is the excuse most often used by these city workers as a way out. Yes, people need to stop trashing the place...but unless there is a budget set aside in the cleanup of these areas and its not just fishing areas, then close it to public access. Residents have a right to complain, I do not blame them. Closing everythng down works great for the city...less work for them to do. Sad, but reality.
  5. Id go north, between Sault Ste Marie, and Wawa. Lots of action up that way, with numerous streams all over the place.
  6. Could be dyed polar bear, Icelandic sheep hair, or craft fur. You can use it for tying bigger streamer patterns for Pike/ Musky flies
  7. Now thats where the terminology of being "spoon" fed comes from. haha
  8. Yeah there is, salmon circus brings out some strange ones. Id say the Ganaraska will be next pay to fish, with excuses to follow. Ontario puts zero into the resource. Wants you to police the rivers, do the cleanups, and maintain the resource. Unethical activity is the new normal without COs to enforce. More and more piers getting closed because municpalities dont want to have to clean them. Our fishing license is dumped into the general fund and squat put into the resource. Thats why I choose to spend my money in the US, vs here. Sounds crazy to say that...but its true. They keep taking spots away and closing access, and finding ways to profit is next.
  9. Dont be surprised. Already happens on sections of the notty in Essa TWP.
  10. I love my Peak Rotary.

    Ft. Erie?

    Yes, some of those guys we talked to were targeting walleye. The odd steelhead in early morning. They were using minnows on spreaders what we saw.
  13. I have a 10'6 Browning six rivers Im going to try it on. I will just put some weights on it and take it over to the school yard to try to cast it. Hopefully the rod I want to use wil work. The DC curado controls backlash I think so dont know if thumb is required to stop the reel.
  14. yes, the guy had it listed for $300 then dropped it to $250. I offered him $225 and he said no way...lol. So I said ok $240 if you deliver it..haha. So then I bailed. He messaged me back $225 if I come get it. So yes, great deal. Used but like brand new with box and paperwork. I just have to figure out hot to use it properly. Is there any specifics for using it with biggger floats and weight? I will read the book on it first. Its lined with 10lb invisx right now. Is that line ok? I run 8lb leads most steelhheading or lighter.
  15. I found one. Picking it up tommorow. $225. Tyler, i want one for the bigger waters like Niagara, and Saugeen. Dont like bombing the float reel my shoulder gets sore tossing long casts on those rivers. Thinking i can use it for hardware casting as well. Someone was showing me his...i was impressed how its no problem to float fish with as well. Winter use would be great as well. Just something i want to add to arsenal. Thinking of unloading a bunch of fly equipment and materials. Just going to keep a basic single hand 5wt get rid of the rest.
  16. Does anyone use the Shimano DC Curado? Im thinking of getting one for the larger rivers to float fish with. Just wanted an opinon or any others you prefer over this one?

    Went to a few places on the upper, water was pretty dirty close to peace bridge. Moved further down the river, and water had perfect colour, but no takers. Talked to few guys, said itsa been slow

    Are you float fishing the upper? What kind setup you using? Never fished up there before is there a certain place to park? Thanks!
  21. DaveC


    True, i usually go in Nov was just curious of anything up early. Might be better on the upper.
  22. DaveC
