For well over 35 years I’ve travelled all over the Great Lakes in pursuit of steelhead and I truly believe that right now is the golden age of the sport in this region! Never before have there been so many world class opportunities available to us as anglers. Based in Ontario and focusing primarily on the fabled Georgian Bay and Lake Huron tributaries I offer my clients several walk and wade options on a select number of these great rivers.
As a long time centre pin angler, this is my area of expertise. My greatest satisfaction as a guide comes from teaching those new to the sport and seeing them succeed. Depending on the season I’ll also turn to the spinning rod. Oftentimes in the warmer water of early fall and again in the spring a properly presented spinner, spoon or plug will out fish anything.
In season a trip with me means you need to be flexible! I’m constantly monitoring the weather and flow rates of the rivers and have a constant pulse on what’s happening and where.
Steelhead are an inherently easy fish to catch. The secret to success is timing and choosing your river wisely on a day to day basis.
As your guide I’ll offer my suggestions as to where we might go on any given day during the season and will have a pretty good idea of what we might encounter. As in all fishing there are never any guarantees, but I’ll do my utmost to ensure a successful outing!
I’ll take a maximum of two people when I’m guiding. Any more than that simply won’t allow me to devote the required amount of attention to my clients.
Price is $300 for two anglers based on a full day. One angler is $200 based on a full day.
Half days are available upon request, contact me for rates.
Included is a packed lunch, non alcoholic beverages and tackle as needed.
Transportation is provided by the angler, but can be arranged on request.
BACK LAKE ADVENTURES
Each season I’ll be offering a select number of guided trips to my camp in northwestern Quebec, roughly a 7 hour drive north from my home in Hamilton Ontario. Each trip will run for 5 days on a Wed to Sun basis and I’ll accommodate a maximum of 2 anglers at any given time. We’ll stay at a luxury water access camp on a fantastic walleye, pike and bass lake in Quebec. Boat is a 16′ Smokercraft with a 90 horse Evinrude e-tec and Minn Kota Terrova bowmount electric, perfect for 3 anglers.
I have several 14′ aluminum boats cached on a number of prime back lakes. In addition I’ll portage my flatback canoe and 2hp motor into other even more remote lakes. There are lots of options available and all of the lakes are loaded with trophy pike, walleye and small mouth bass. While staying at the camp we’ll fish several of them.
This is a FULLY guided trip and includes all food, non alcoholic beverages, gas and any other miscellaneous expenses. Transportation to the camp is the responsibility of the angler, but can be arranged upon request. Quebec fishing license is also the responsibility of each angler. Basically just get yourself to the camp and I’ll take care of everything else!
Price for this fantastic 5 day adventure is $1500 for one angler and $2500 for two.
