Well this is my first post. I'm going to head up to Meaford for some salmon fishing this weekend and was just wondering how it looked up there this year. Heres a picture from a couple years back when there were still some good fish around up there.

Absolutely there is salmon in georgian bay. The nottawasaga river is one of the most infamous salmon rivers in north america and it connects to georgian bay. There is also quite a few caught on downrigging equip in the depths near giants tomb offshore of honey harbour.

Lake simcoe? Georgion Bay is part of lake huron, which is connected to lake ontario through the trent/severn waterway.

I'm not sure what assumptions people are under, but Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) has salmon (Chinook, Coho) and steelhead whereas Lake Simcoe, (not a Great Lake) does not have any of the aforementioned species of fish. Lake Simcoe does however have Lake Trout.

If anyone's interested were 6 fish for 3 outings out of Meaford. A big improvement over the last couple years up here. All are in the 8 to 10lbs range. I'm heading to Lake Ontario next week for either Port credit or Ashbridges Bay any suggestions for location, depth etc down there?

It also has Pink salmon, maybe not many but they're there... or at least were lol. Last one I caught was in 2003 in the Nottawasaga.
