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.
Last weekend a few friends and I spent the weekend in Cobourg so that we could dedicate some serious time hunting the surrounding rivers and streams in search of trout. Our usual spot was void of trout, but we ventured further upstream and found several other pools. You can read the full report on our forums and view all the photos in our gallery.
If you’re not familiar with 4 Eel Fishing and KokeMachine, you should skip lunch and take a refresher course. Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting and fishing with KokeMachine out in Cobourg, and thanks to our guide Dave everyone landed a fish!
And yes, for the record, KokeMachine sounds exactly like he does in his videos. OH YEAH!!
Here is our guide Dave, no he’s not a real guide, but he’s willing to take people out and teach them float fishing. Which is every bit as good. If you’re interested in float fishing in the Toronto area join our forums and let us know. Unfortunately there is no photo of the rainbow trout I caught, but I can tell you that having finally caught a fish on my float rod I’m hooked! Check out the full gallery after the break!
