Just got back from Lake Ontario where I had another great time with Capt. Mike Smith, Scott Baker, and Vic and Sean Giard.  I also had the pleasure of spending a 1/2 day on board the Sportsmen with Capt. Mike Dostie and Chad Wawrzyniak.  No trip to the Big O is the same and this year was no different. We’ve had years where a rod would break or some how jump over board, but we never had 4 rods break and have 2 people go over board.  Another odd occurrence was the amount of fish we had on, only to lose them during the fight. We had a couple of good days, however we never caught the boats limit.  For the 2nd year in a row we did not boat a double digit fish.  For the 3rd year in a row I had a couple different flies produce fish which puts the icing on the cake for me.

On the home front, I have received reports of great river fishing mostly due to the TLC (temp, level,clarity) on most water ways resembling that of late May.  This is only good short term. We need rain and cooler temps to get things back to normal and mother nature should be hooking us up over the next 5 days.
