Lots of different fishing holes

Maitland River 2000 to the present

The Maitland River is a spate river that flows into Lake Huron through the town of Goderich, Ontario. It’s a very attractive river with runs of chinook, steelhead and is also noted for its great smallmouth fishing.

A nice, bright hen taken below the Hwy 21 bridge. Water was quite low so the fishing was tough.

One of a dozen I caught while fishing for steelhead. This was the smallest. Why I took a picture of it and not the big ones is beyond me. All were caught on the Weamer as can be seen by the fly hanging out of its mouth. I should rename this fly ‘Smallmouth Candy”.
