Presenting the winning hunting, fishing, family and wildlife shots from Outdoor Canada’s 8th annual photo contest

FISHING: 1st PLACE

PHOTOGRAPHER: Kayce Yardam

WHERE: Georgian Bay tributary, Ontario

WHEN: May 2018

DETAILS: Kayce Yardam was fishing the trout opener with his brothers Zabe and Wais when Wais brought this beauty steelhead to hand. “As soon as his float dropped and he set the hook, the fish ran under a pile of logs,” Yardam says. “His float was stuck in between two branches and we figured he was snagged. After several attempts of trying to unhinge the float from the branches, he got it free. Much to our surprise, the fish was still on!”

PRIZE: $500 Rapala Prize Package
