Big rainbows and lot’s of brown’s still being caught at Port Dalhousie, ON.Posted on November 15th, 2010
Gabor Horvat reports. The fishing slowed-down at Port Dalhousie, ON. Today I had 4- fish on (3 browns and 1 rainbow, and lost a few. I also hooked something big that was very strong and took my line out, but was not fighting like a trout or a salmon. It felt like a rattling snag at the beginning and was very powerful. The fish started to swim out to the middle of the river really fast and I could not control it. Than it stopped and was almost playing with me on the bottom. Few times it started to swim again; my drag could not hold it. I tried to work it close to shore, but after a while it did not move at all. Finally I put a lot of pressure on my line, and it snapped. I used the three way swivel presentation, shortened the length of the hook leader to 2 1/2 feet. With a longer lead I was getting stuck on the bottom too much. Used row bags as well as yarn fly’s. Both worked well. The North wind picked up later and it was blowing our lines against the current which made it tough to feel the bottom well, so we left.
