The fishing season is off to a fantastic start this year! Last weekend marked the opening of trout season here in Ontario and though I was only able to get out yesterday, my friends and I still managed to have a fantastic day on the river. We woke up early and took a short drive out to Oshawa where we would explore the upper parts of the river. Tiny beads and stoneflies were the most effective lures in the gin clear water.
We all know how happy fishermen are when they catch something, but have you ever caught a fish that looked this happy? He was so happy that we had to release him to continue his trek upstream and spread his happy gene. If you’ve caught a happier looking fish than this I want to see it!

If you haven’t been following our Twitter or Instagram feeds you’ve missed out on some fantastic winter fishing. Don’t worry, we’ve uploaded all of our best photos to our winter steelhead fishing gallery and we’ll continue to update it as the remaining weeks of winter pass. Clive was also in attendance this trip, but we couldn’t put him on his first fish of the year.
