Ontario’s spectacular steelhead, Vancouver Island elk and Alberta’s upland action
Ontario’s Saugeen River offers some of the finest steelhead angling in the country, with more than 35,000 fish returning every fall. Double-digit fish days are common on this sparkling Georgian Bay river, with 15-pound-plus trophies a definite possibility. Float fishing with centre-pin reels and neutrally buoyant bead rigs and spawn sacs account for most of the big steelies. Guide Graham Bristow can put you on the fish.
