Instead of dealing with the crowds at the big tribs I decided to hit up some small stream brookies close to Barrie.
4wt in hand I headed out to my honey hole on Saturday but got skunked. The fish were there but were spooked out by any little bit of movement, wind included.
I decided to try a new spot I've never fished on Sunday and was rewarded almost immediately! Tossing small beadhead nymphs I hooked into a few small guys early on and closed the day with a nice 9 or 10 inch spec. Not bad for a creek I can jump across!
I hope the rest of you fellas had a good time on opener and at least got a fish or two.
