It’s That Time of Year!


It’s that time of year again! The weather starts to cool, the sweaters come out, the leaves change colours, and the water temperature drops. But don’t get upset because the salmon run is here! The salmon have started making their ways up the rivers to spawn in Ontario. The past few rain falls have really helped with raising the water levels. The salmon are able to get up the rivers a lot easier. There are many reports and pictures of anglers landing monster salmon!

If you have never experienced a salmon run I suggest you get out and see what you’re missing. Even if you’re not into catching fish (which I can’t believe your not), go down to a river like the Credit and the Humber and witness nature at its best. See how powerful and determined these beasts of nature are, as they make their way up to where they were born and lay their eggs for future generations. It is really something to see, especially if you can see them jump over obstacles like dams.

This fall don’t just sit home trying to stay warm and complain that summer has ended. Get out and see what all the fuss is about. The salmon run is here, don’t wait too long as it only lasts for so long! By mid to end of November the major run will be over. Don’t wait, get some bait and go fishing!

‘Till next time: May your hook sets be Massive and your fish be Monsters!
