Good Morning All,
My name's John, and I'm new to OFF. I recently moved from Nova Scotia and am pumped to be fishing some new species and bodies of water.
I'm in Ottawa, and that seems to be an obstacle for someone who loves to fish brook trout. It seems I'll have to travel a bit, which sucks considering I had a good brookie spot in my NS backyard
I fish with lures(ususally when I bring the kids), but prefer fly fishing these days.
If anyone has any starting points for trout fishing near Ottawa, I'd be very grateful. I don't want anyone's honey holes: I like to work for my fish and will hike& bushwack to avoid crowds and overfishing spots. Almost entirely c&r, so I won't clear out a treasured spot
Just some general areas to start would be awesome and I'll do the research.
I'm also a believer in cleanup of shores, so if there's a conservation group around Ottawa planning a cleanup, I'm in.
Looking forward to some good fish chat!
