Southern Ontario temps continue to go up and down just below breezing and above freezing. Any snow we get seems to melt quickly. Rain and freezing rain is common which means run-off in the Lake Ontario & Lake Erie tributaries which attracts migrating Steelhead. Micha Kubassek fished a local stream and as you can see it looks more like fall then winter.
Micha was drifting salmon egg roe-bags under a sensitive float.
When water clears up after run-off fish will only hold in deeper runs and pools which means making your drift before getting to the “high-percentage” area or the fish will spool and will be very difficult to entice.
