Naming Rivers and other forum rules


  • Naming Rivers: The naming of any specific river or tributary is not permitted in the publicly viewable general discussion forum. Instead, please refer to the river by the general area it is located, ie “East Trib”, “West Trib”, “GB (Georgian Bay) Trib”, etc. For example, you are not allowed to say "I had a great day fishing yesterday on Wilmot Creek", instead, we encourage members to say "I had a great day fishing yesterday on an East Trib". The former statement should be relegated to the reports sections (coming soon), away from public view.
  • Lining Debate: "Lining", "snagging" or "flossing" fish is a hot-button topic that often ruins otherwise productive conversations. In order to keep the general discussion forum clean, helpful and productive, it is the policy of OFF that any and all "lining" conversation/debate be conducted in the "Salmonid Insanity" sub-forum.
  • Forum Etiquette: Simple - Be polite, keep it civil. All personal attacks, insults, inflammatory remarks, threats, racist remarks, trolling and otherwise rude and/or immature behaviour are strictly forbidden and will be met with disciplinary action up to and including permanent banning.

Welcome.

 

Rule #1 is not to name any tributaries. Anything east of Toronto can be referred to as being on an EAST trib, anything west, a WEST trib, anything off lake Huron can unofficially be referred to as a NORTH trib. You will find an "edit" button to the right of your post. I suggest you edit the name of that river and say " I fished a west trib today".

 

Just keep at it man. Fish are in all of them!!! Make sure you are fishing within your legal limits. Time and persistence pays.

 

Cheers

Welcome to the forum steely. It seems like you already have everything going. West trib, East trib. you name it, there will be fish. You can locate these tribs in google map and see which one is convenient for you...there will be fish. As long as you check the regs just to avoid fishing close areas. you should be fine. Most tribs are slowly clearing up.

I often see guys standing in one spot the entire day and they don't catch very many. If you're trying to catch fish, don't limit yourself :)

think like a fish. they don't stay in one place if there's no food to be had. i do 3 to 4 sweeps before I go to another spot.

Good day everyone, can someone possibly specify if fishing more north of lake ontario or closer to the mouths is better for steelhead, weather in the East Trib or West Trib ?

 

 

Thanks

I will move depending on the conditions and where I find fish, sometimes I will work a 60 foot section of the river up and down for a while tho. After I catch a fish in a spot I like to let it rest for 20 mins or so, move up the river a bit then if I catch a fish in the new area I will go back to the spot I got the first one. That's considering it isn't a crowded day then I will try to hold onto a nice spot a bit longer.
