Hey Tim, went gettin em' today. River has a great colour. The trib further east didn't budge with the rain we got.Our close to home trib has been getting a lot more attention of late. I'm seeing more people that I have never seen before. It's amazing really.I guess becuase of the poor conditions of the Huron watersheds and too many tackle shop owners talking too much! Not that I own the rivers, but not use to seeng that many people on it. There, my rant's over.:p

Take care Tim and see ya on the water.


Regards
KJ

Hi all.
Fishaholic.
I for one promise never again to ask a Tackle Shop for advice again.
However, could you provide me with the co-ordinates for that spot.
Tongue in cheek:)

Cheers, Clark

I am sure you learned alot from Ken yesterday. Always ask questions and pay attention to what the more successful anglers do. It is a wonderful past time we all have to enjoy. Good luck tomorrow and stay safe.

Yes it is definitely getting busier on our local waters for many reasons. I am not going to blame anyone or anything, for me i try to share a bit, I don't give detail on where i fish or not into giving numbers, i prefer to just say ya it was ok, got a few, or it sucked,lol.It really shouldn't surprise us veterans to see all systems getting busier. I think it is more important to educate the newbies on the importance of catch and release etc because whether we like it or not it will continue to grow in popularity, that's just life. Keep your head up and reel to the float,lol. Take care Ken.

I think internet talk, and sites such as facebook do just as much harm if not more than tackle shops... but thats just my opinion.

Quinner. You hit it right on the head and so did you Ken. I've been known to run off at the mouth..... and the key board. Let's face it. Those of us that will drive through blinding snow or freezing rain storms to get a fix floating the seems and log jams are pationate for what we do. And we tend to get yappy either waiting for the season to get going or maybe a little boastful about a few good days that we have had because the guys I know will work their asses off to get their fix even when it is really tough. We all know the adrenaline rush of flipping floats for hours without so much as a touch and then walking into that 1 fish that stays in your memory for a very long time. As hard cores we are junkies and alot of these new faces (example: 2 guys I met Thursday came from Sarnia) are using whatever they can to get a fix just like the rest of us. That's why I try to keep my mouth and keyboard shut. To protect the source of my habit and relief. (And of course we all know how well that works for me at times.):)

Prepare for every outing as if it were a military mission. Play every fish like you were dancing with the prettiest woman in the room!

Being mostly a Lake Huron angler myself I can tell you that alot of the extra pressure being seen on the Erie tribs can definitely be attributed to the lack of water on the northern rivers. Being that the Erie creeks have a much more consistent base flow it's tempting for us Huron guys to head to a trib that has some colour and a bit of a drift.......

That said, the Erie creeks don't really appeal to me that much due to the lack of "walk and wade" water and excess of wood that inevitably leads to more terminal tackle left in fish than I like. I, as well as many others will likely be back fishing the north tribs as soon as we get some much needed precip.......In fact I spent the last 2 days on a GB tributary laying an beating a ton of chromers that got moving with the last rain we had.......

The fishing should finally be in full swing everywhere if we get the rain that's forcasted on Wednesday.........

Altohugh erie creeks are full of wood, if you know what youre doing, you should not be leaving terminal tackle in fish. Of all the fish I've caught in the last couple years, I've maybe broken off 3 fish max. Of course it may not be the same for people with less experience, but I will agree, it sucks loosing a ton of terminal tackle just to snags and lumber.

In the end, its all about catch and release, and proper release. The thrill for me is hooking and fighting the steel, a pic and then to watch it take off again. I release all my fish and if everyone was like me, the fisheries would never be abused, due to humans anyway. Too many people who drive their "SUV's or tucks" but need to catch their next meal....

It's threads like this one that cause extra pressure on the Erie tribs. No names are mentioned but it's not to hard to figure it out. Sounds like most are you are running into each other down at the river, why not keep the talk about how good or bad it was down there.

I'd agree, wish this thread was never started, and thats why I never do start them, I responded to it yes, but if I didnt someone else would have.

Same with pictures with easily recognized back grounds eh #
Quinner LOL I think the pressure will slow down once the huron and G-bay tribs have some good numbers of fish like Josh said they are lookin for a steelie fix anyway they can get it.

You guys couldn't get me to the river if you told me I could catch them with my bare hands :D. Too much work just getting there. I think most of the lurkers here would agree. It is nice though to live vicariously through the site members who are kind enough to share the occasional report about and/or pictures of their adventures on the rivers.

When I lived in Mississauga my townhouse backed onto the credit river. I just started to get the hang of steelheading that wide, rocky river then moved out here. First winter I gave it a shot and pretty much gave up since! lol I'm no a patient man and can't handle all the wood and snags. I spent more time re-tying than fishing. Not for me - I'll fish open water bow's and brown's at certain times of the year and leave the trib fishing to you hardcore guys!

you almost make it sound like you frown upon those who choose to keep a fish for a few meals...
