This thread is dedicated to the history of fishing on Lake Simcoe. We will be posting vintage pictures of anglers with their catches, or anglers fishing on Lake Simcoe. If anyone can identify the individuals in any of these pics, or has any details / stories you can share, please do, I'm sure our community would love to hear about it.

The pics will be numbered 001, 002, 003 etc. Just reply to this topic and reference the pic if you have something to share.

If you would like to share a vintage Lake Simcoe fishing pic pre-1900 to 1960, please email me info@lakesimcoeoutdoors.com or post it with all known details.

Thank-you Thorahguy for supplying these great vintage pics of Lake Simcoe's History.

Vintage Pic 013

Since 1959 seems to qualify as vintage, here's my first Ontario trout in 1958. (I came to Ontario in 1955.) It's not Simcoe though, it's near Dorset.
