In the summer our steelhead fishing in Southern Ontario rivers is non-existent. While there are plenty of trout lakes several hours north of Toronto they can be tough when trying to plan a day trip, which is why there’s so much value in heading up to Georgian Bay to fish Depot Harbour, a small cove loaded with trout.
When I think of Depot I think of a place where you can go out of the city when other fishing is slow to catch a lot of rainbows. This is a place you can go and have the security where you know you are going to catch fish regardless of how much skill you have. It’s not technical. It’s simple fishing and a great place to retreat to when steelhead is slow or the weather is too hot.
