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!
