Changing Winter Conditions

Two days after our snowstorm, I took the opportunity to go fishing with my brother-in-law.  To our dismay, smaller creeks were iced over.  My first two creek options presented a solid layer of ice and no visible running water.  It’s surprising what a week plus of cold weather can do to smaller...

Lakeshore Trout Right Now!

  Yellow Buggers Casted From Rock Jetty After a guided trip with two customers on Sunday on Lake Ontario tributaries, I realized the rains had not produced as many fish in our local creeks as I had hoped for. Seeing pairs of giant Pike in the creek was a tell tale sign that it was the beginning...
