Limberlost Forest & Wildlife Preserve Brookie family adventure.

Posted on Thursday, December 6, 2018

Our good friend Moshe Berger who I met and fished with in Israel had a chance to come back to Ontario and do some brook trout fishing. He took his son and daughter to Limberlost Forest & Wildlife Preserve. Here are some pictures of from their fall trip.

After very slow fishing from the boat, they realized that “all” the fish in the lake were in front of their cabin. Moshe caught several Brookies with the fly rod off the dock. He also had an hour of incredible spinner fishing from shore.

They caught over over 15 fish and had a great Brook Trout adventure.

Most importantly, his kids caught their first Brook trout and then many more.

In Moshe’s words, “Now they understand why their Dad dreams of those beautiful fish which are hand painted by God himself. (My theory anyways)”

Steelhead soft-beads, it’s all about the color and size.

Posted on Tuesday, December 4, 2018

This fall I was pleasantly surprised that even though I tried fishing both salmon and trout roe bags, all of my fish were caught on single egg imitating beads. It was my first fall fishing the Cleardrift soft-beads and I was very impressed.

I discovered when I started fishing single egg imitations that size and color based on water conditions is extremely important. When I start fishing at daybreak, if the water is pretty clear I start off with a 8mm chartreuse, soft-bead.

While the light is still low I’ll also switch to a smaller 6mm or even 4mm soft-bead.

As the light gets brighter I switch to an 8mm natural colored soft-bead. After I catch a fish or two and there’s a lull in the action I switch to the same color but in a 10mm size. After a while I’ll start experimenting with different colors in the same size.

In murky, big water bigger single beads up to 20mm can work extremely well. The image above shows the comparison of sort–beads ranging in size from 4mm-20mm,  It pays off to have a good assortment of sizes and colors so you are ready for any light and water conditions.
