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 [...]

Last Chance for Pike in Northern Ontario

By: Chris Shaffer Northern Ontario is littered with some of the best fishing in North America. With that in mind it didn’t take much convincing for us to fly north and spend a three-day weekend targeting burbot, brook trout and splake in hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors. With good weather on hand doing so wasn’t [...]

Fire Dye Suckers – Boosting Action on Ontario Ice

By: Tom Armstrong After being introduced to Pautzke's Fire Dye last winter when brook trout fishing, (https://youtu.be/XSt7YeHxFjY) it’s become something I use every time I’m on the ice. Most recently we used it in Northern Ontario for walleye and burbot. It’s a cool product that adds intense colour to your bait, increasing the baits reflective [...]

Southern Ontario Steelhead Iced Into Winter Pattern

By: Bojan Zivkovic Our fall steelhead season flew by quickly in Southwestern Ontario. A reflection of low water conditions, many rivers saw poor returns. Low water has affected our winter steelhead, too. When we have high water our rivers normally fish in mid winter. Meanwhile, with the low water we have now many of our [...]

Salmon Still Running in the Greater Toronto Area

By: Bojan Zivkovic The north shore of Lake Ontario has seen a strong salmon run this fall and it’s not over yet. Considering rivers have little water the fishing has been stellar in Southwestern Ontario. Low water levels forced schools of salmon into long and deep stretches, which is where they are now. These fish [...]

Learn A Perfect Brine For Niagara River Salmon

By: Ted Kessler My go-to egg curing method hasn’t changed in a few years. More than 85 percent of the salmon we catch come on what I call the Niagara River Brine. I mix plain borax and blend three colors of Fire Cure and it gives us an egg the salmon key in on. More [...]

Learn How To Cure Skein Ontario Style

By: Bojan Zivkovic Now that we are at the tail end of the hot, humid and dry summer we’ve had in Southern Ontario I’m looking forward to fall salmon season. With some rain forecasted this week (for the first time in a long time) it won’t be long until schools of salmon that are patiently [...]

GTA Salmon Showing For Toronto Anglers

By: Chris Shaffer A north wind kept the GTA’s shoreline relatively calm over the weekend. However, soupy and choppy conditions on Lake Ontario remained a few miles offshore keeping smaller boats pinned to the shoreline. Fortunately, a number of staging Chinook were available along the skyline from Toronto to Oakville. We were in town to [...]

Southern Ontario Steelhead Confused by Wacky Weather

By: Josh Choronzey It is nearly the middle of April and the steelhead of the upper Great Lakes are likely just as confused as I am in terms of understanding Mother Nature’s current attitude. Two weeks ago we were enjoying double digit temps in t-shirts while the snow melted at unprecedented rates. Meanwhile days ago [...]
