Northwest Ontario Ice Good for Walleye & Trout

By: Tom Armstrong Cold temperatures and major snowfalls have winter in full force in Northwestern Ontario. As our lakes frozen early the region is covered in a layer of snow and ice. In fact, some anglers were drilling holes as early as November! Almost all area lakes are fishable through the ice. Many are even [...]

GTA Salmon Season Still Going Strong

By: Bojan “Bojangles” Zivkovic On the heels of an excellent big lake season our GTA rivers are plugged with salmon. Most Lake Ontario tributaries (east and west of Toronto) still have an abundance of salmon. I’m expecting the run to last at least a few more weeks. Meanwhile, Georgian Bay, Lake Huron and Lake Superior [...]

Ontario Steelhead Anglers Finding Surf Fishing Action

By: Bojan Zivkovic With the trout opener still a few weeks away I started off my late winter/early spring steelhead season by surf fishing and have found willing steelhead.

Splake Showing Now Through Ontario Ice

By: Tom Armstrong The Chartreuse Fire Dye minnow was practically glowing on the tube jig as I dropped it down beneath the ice in search of an aggressive splake. Cameras were rolling inches from my face as we attempted to film Pautzke Outdoors on a remote Northern Ontario lake. I was jigging the bait about [...]

The Southern Ontario Fall/Winter Steelhead Preview

By: Bojan Zivkovic This fall the majority Southern Ontario anglers noticed a later start to the salmon and steelhead season. Chinook ran in bigger numbers in October and many have been hanging around until now. Steelhead action didn’t pick up until mid October once water temperatures cooled. The runs are reminiscent of how runs were [...]

GTA Salmon Bite to Take Off with Cooler Weather

By: Bojan Zivkovic The Great Lakes have seen an increase in Chinook and coho populations this summer, and following stellar summer fishing on Lake Ontario we’re expecting a promising salmon run in our GTA rivers this fall. The cool rain and mild temperatures we saw a few weeks ago drew salmon into tributaries on the [...]

Toronto Salmon Bite Impressing Ontario Trollers

By: Bojan Zivkovic Salmon season has been productive on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Trollers chasing Chinook, coho and steelhead in the depths been hooking good numbers of fish, and those big Chinook are averaging more than 20 pounds. I’ve noticed a healthy population of baitfish. This is a good sign of a healthy [...]

Big Splake Still Showing in Northern Ontario

By: Chris Shaffer I’d never been splake fishing. Coming from The States, splake aren’t one of the more heavily stocked species. Meanwhile, I’d always wanted to experience quality splake fishing and was fortunate to meet Rich Brochu, a Northern Ontario native who’s become a friend of the Pautzke family in recent years. Brochu offered to [...]

GTA Seeing Early Spring Steelhead Action

By: Bojan Zivkovic During the past couple months we’ve experienced dramatic weather changes in Southwestern Ontario. Temperatures have been inconsistent. We've seen 30-degree differences in two days. These abnormal temperature swings have affected plants, wildlife and trout/steelhead. For example, a month ago mild temperatures drew steelhead into our rivers. Meanwhile, the systems were quick to [...]
