Our good friends John Walkingtom and Kelsey-Rose MacDonald had a chance to get fresh air and check some of the southern Ontario tributaries for trout.
Kelsey was the official photographer
and Violet her pup was the official guard dog making sure any other anglers kept their social-distancing in place.
John had the responsibility of catching trout! While many anglers targeted steelhead in many of the southern Ontario tributaries John alternated between fishing small Rapala’s for resident browns to fishing a simple worm on a small Gamakatsu hook and one or two split-shot sinkers.
Brook Trout in southern Ontario headwaters streams make up for their size by their amazing colors. It’s worth “trail-blazing” and getting away from anglers and “dunking” a small worm in every deeper ripple, along an undercut bank, or under a log or logjam to catch & release these very beautiful trout!
