Fishing the Grand River in Ontario


This year we decided to do our trip in two day fashion and drift the lower river for that wild strain of Rainbow’s I’ve heard so much about. Our first day myself and two other anglers from the shop fished the upper reaches of the grand. This area has been made very popular over the past few years, so we weren’t sure what to expect.

Well I have to tell you we saw only three other anglers the entire day. We also found lots of big, I mean twenty plus inch class Brown Trout feeding on dry flies in the middle of the day.
