hello,
i will be going to Inverhuron next week for camping.
can anyone provide any advise if there is any fishing to be done? from shore or maybe from kayak within let's say 500m - 1000m from shore.

on their website they are listing a whole bunch of species but they have a marketing team as well so yeah, i will take that with a grain of salt.

thank you

You will be right beside the Bruce B power plant and its outflow. There can be good multi-species fishing there and if the winds are reasonable, you could likely kayak out to it. Not too much for shore fishing from the park but not far from piers and harbours in Kincardine, Port Elgin, and the Saugeen in Southampton.

thanks, reaching the plant should be ok especially if i launch from the far end of the park.

if you have any tips on what species are most likely to encounter, it would be appreciated, it makes a difference on what tackle i can carry with me. it would be silly to try to catch perch with pike lures

This time of year, you could catch bass, pike, rainbow trout, walleye, sheepshead, catfish, there could even be the odd brown trout and coho or chinook salmon.

Fishing around the outflows can be super productive for multiple species this time of year. Depending on water temps, you may not have to be out too deep to get into some lakers or if you're lucky some salmon. Was up that way (Southampton) last week and fish were holding in 65' of water.

Good Luck

if anyone interested in my experience:

On Friday it was fairly windy, 15+ kmh and it was pretty wavy, i estimate close to 2ft (some kayaker 20m in front of me at times i could only see him from waste up).

On Saturday afternoon the wind did let go a bit, waves did not really though, but i decided to brave it out. All the way to plant outflow was kinda wavy, more or less like the day before, enough so that the bow slapped the water after climbing a wave, no water over bow though (Feelfree Moken 12.5 v2 has a nice rocker) so it was fine, but once i got to the outflow, right on the border, the water turned from wavy to choppy, white caps and everything. I hesitated a bit then i said to myself i could still go further. Bad decision. 10m within and i realized i need to focus exclusively on staying upright, the kayak was dancing like an egg shell, and i imagine this is what rodeo feels like. So i gave up and went back to park shore. All this time i was trailing a worm harness (i had no down rigger though so probably it did not reach too deep) and in between trolling depth (or rather said, height?), north winds and choppy/wavy water i had not one bite.
I had my fishfinder on (Garmin striker 4), first time using it on soft water, to be honest i had no idea what i was looking at: it was showing a lot of... noise, stuff that seemed to go up, not arches but diagonal lines..; i tried standing still and on the a-scope it looked like stuff was going straight up, but looking around i could see nothing in the water. did not looked like noise though. no idea what it was showing me. Of course I am not very good at using anyway, so this is likely on me

On Sunday the water was very nice, pretty much flat, very light breeze, a beauty, but i had not time for fishing, had to pack and go home so i just cruised around a bit. i could see the bottom clearly even in 20 fow so i kept looking out for fish but spotted none, save some small fish, which were sitting on bottom and then scuttle away when i would get very close on top of them.

so... crappy fishing experience, awesome kayaking experience and given that this is my 3rd time out with the boat i think it was pretty cool. I'll go back to Simcoe/Kawarthas for some bass to make up for it Although while i'll catch some, i'm pretty sure i'll miss the beautiful clear water of lake Huron.

thanks for your advice and thank you for reading my story. any new kayakers might learn from my experience.
