Probably talking about Mill Pond which is said to be no fishing allowed in 2015


Yup, there are/were carp in there back in the day... Bass and other species as well - The pond in the back was better.


No fishing as of 2015? Interesting... I wonder why?

If you're casting at night with glow in the dark lures like cleos, moonshine spoons, etc.. then straight braid is the ticket, no need for a flouro leader.


When dawn hits, I would go to either A ) a second rod loaded with mono line (6lb Trilene XT, 8 lb XL... etc..) or B ) use braid with a flouro leader using an albright knot... the trick to keep maximum cast-ability is by keeping the flouro leader short enough so the knot doesn't go through the guides. So 18 - 24 " maximum on a 11' rod will work.


I've done both separately, but I prefer to bring two rods, one with straight braid for night spoon chucking and another with light mono for sun-up. Hope this helps.

Your approach seems right on. An open water Chinook will give your 6lb line a good work out hahahaha. 
I commend you on your new outlook of fishing. Too many times have I seen horrible things by other anglers on the river. I also sometimes refuse to fish mid run in the rivers because IMO, the salmon are not feeding and it is a floss fest. 
Catching a salmon like that does not make me feel good about myself. 

That is why my new favourite thing is winter/spring steelhead. On a good day, they can be very aggressive and it is obvious when they are feeding. 

Get out there as much as possible and try to get an open water one before they all move into the rivers! Good luck. 

Agreed 100%

Hit and miss right now. They will be in thick 'soon'...

Keep an eye on the hydrometric data.

Wow, that's surprising.


Thanks for the info. I would definitely try Ontario place... and do let us know how you make out... I've heard some very good things about that spot in past years.
