Went over to the Nottawasaga today to meet up with Steelheader. Tailfin wasn't there, but Knuguy showed up and introduced himself when he saw my "multi- coloured" toque. He recognized it from last weeks pictures.

Slow, cold day--it was minus 8 degrees and line was freezing in the rod guides.

Knuguy showed up late after fishing further up river and left early, but Steelheader and I hung in from dawn until noon and he got 1 hit-1fish on his "sexy roe". A nice 7lb 10oz rainbow. I didn't have a hit, despite using some of the "sexy roe" as well as my normal salmon roe. Only fish caught all morning in that area of the river.

Talked to some guys upstream and I understand a few fish were caught further up in the morning. Water is still very low and somewhat dirty.

My "multi-coloured" toque has an interesting story behind it. For over 45 years I was a member of the British Automobile Racing Club in Toronto and was very active in many aspects of sports car racing and rallying-competitor, marshall, race official, organizer and race commentator. Back in the late 60's, there was a member by the name of Walt Miller (RIP) who had been a prisoner of war during WW2 and had learned to knit while in the POW camp.
If Walt liked you he would knit you a toque out of whatever wool came to hand to wear when you went ice racing-(racing cars on ice). My wife and I each have one of these "one offs" and they are at least 40 years old. It's my coldweather trademark.

Picture of Steelheader and his fish follows. From the look of the weather, we may still be able to fish next week.

Looks like you were right at the boat launch on the point at the mouth. Must have been windy out there. But, sure is a nice Trout!!!!

SD and SteelH,
Good to meet you guys. That was some 'round' trout!

Admin---I think it's fair to say that fishing was quite slow that day. The one in the pic is 1 of the very few fish that were landed amoung quite a few guys( SD said 9 guys at the ramp earlier in the day and that was the only fish)

Knuguy, I know what you mean... Can be tough there.. But anytime your buddy (buddies) catch a fish, it's a good day.. At least you know your bait was in the proximity of a fish and you had a somewhat equal chance of catching it..
