“Slim-pickings” for winter steelhead.

Posted on January 9th, 2017

For those of us living in southern Ontario it’s been “Yo-Yo” weather. One week it’s really cold, than a mild stretch with rain, than cold again. This has made for unpredictable ice conditions on large lakes and many tributaries are frozen-up with some open sections or in some situations larger rivers are completely open or with just ice on the edges.

Frank Roy sent us the featured¬†image of one of the steelhead catches from a Lake Ontario tributary. Most steelheaders wait for milder temps, but other truly dedicated anglers don’t mind frozen fingers and iced-up guides for the chance to land a winter steelhead!
