Ontario Smallmouth Bass

Ontario Smallmouth Bass

“There truly is nothing more powerful then a large River Smallmouth Bass”

Our rivers here in Ontario are filled with these Bronzeback beauties. About an hours drive from Toronto, Ontario is the Grand River. The section from Paris to Brantford is a catch and release area and the Smallmouth Bass are large and plentiful.

This stretch is a great Drift with beautiful scenery and lots of opportunity for top water action. IMG_4628


Farther to the north about a two hour drive from Toronto is the Saugeen River in Walkerton, Ontario. This is a much larger and deeper river that houses our largest Smallmouth Bass that our rivers have to offer. This river is accessible only from a Drift Boat.

Steve May nails a gorgeous Musky fly fishing on our Ontario rivers.

The remoteness is breathtaking. The numbers are not as great as the Grand River but the chance at 5-6 pound Smallmouths can be found on each section of this river. The Smallmouth also share this water with some incredible, feisty Musky. Your chance at fish in the high 40″ range is not uncommon. Just bring along some nerves.  


Our season begins on the 4th Saturday in June and ends in November.
