If your are in the area of Drift Outfitters in Toronto or Grand River Outfitters in Fergus you should stop in and talk to the guys about flies that are working during that time period. Otherwise there are a number of nymphs that could work. One of my favorites is a pheasant tail nymph. Good luck.

A good way of finding out more information on the upper credit river is to join Greg Clark Chapter of Trout Unlimited. There's a bunch of guys that fish that area that may be willing to share the type of info you are looking for. They also do a great job of helping to maintain and improve that river and could use more support and more help.

In Topic: Leader, Shot Line, and Float Rigging Question

hmmm, not sure I believe it's the float spinning during the cast that causes line twist since my float doesn't seam to spin and other styles of casting don't cause line twist but I still use the same float. I think the swivel and the slip floats just allow the line to un-twist when being reeled in each time so no twist is created by the repeated side cast style. I think this is why once I start seeing line twist I add a micro swivel a few feet above the float and the line twist almost instantly vanishes, the swivel allows the line to untwist on the cast or on the retrieve..  either way, swivels work..

I have a question, How the hell do you get on the water 250 days a year and still have a job and a life? :razz:

I don't think you can go wrong with any organization that helps the river. Some may be pro steelhead, some are pro browns, some are pro brook trout and some don't care they just want clean water and a healthy ecosystem. Go with an organization that fits your best interest and join and have fun. it's a great way to meet new anglers that share your passion and to help your favorite rivers, TU has different chapters that may have a different objective and you should contact the closest chapter and ask them directly about their views and projects..
