    BillM--the last time you were at denny's dam, did you camp on the flats, or just a day trip ? i just wondered if the HAMILTON STEELHEADERS, were still running the show on the flats, camping permits & putting fish over the damn, fish ladder ?

    denny's dam

    hi there Bill M-- i'm glad to hear somebody loved fishing the bayfield river. i use to go every spring, opening day, stay 10 days in rainbow valley campground, $ 6 bucks a day ! old joe brandon, that owned the hardware store in town, owned the campground. no hydro, no sewers. 3 outhouses, 2 wells with continuous running water & a dump station ! i called it hobo heaven ? but the fishing, if the water was high enough, was amazing ! i did for a dozen yrs. i knew every hole in the river, right to the highway bridge in the town of VARNA , 7 miles upstream. i caught over those yrs., maybe a dozen yrs., a couple of hundred bows, not a lie. i loved it in hobo heaven, but i really loved the beautiful river & town of bayfield ! i then moved farther north to goderich, bought a 2 bedroom trailer, right on the maitland river, GOD'S COUNTRY, 20 yrs. of nothing but great scenery & fishing ! WOW, THOSE WERE THE DAYS !!!

    DJ general --nice fish, i didn't look like you had a lot of water where you were ? i tried the centre pins on a 13 ft. pole, i don't know ? i have 3 daiwa tournament ss 1300's reels, on 9,10,11 ft - loomis blanks. i use yarn, lots of colors & purple sponge balls, bottom bouncing with a few splits above a 3 ft. floro leader. i fish the maitland & bayfield rivers. -- i'm 67, i can't see well enough to tie a # 2 hook on 2 lb. floro leader ? your much younger and should have no problem tying or casting, i couldn't master that either ? the bayfield river, if the water is low, this yr. -i will use 9 ft, 7 wt. looms fly rod with a cheap browning reel on it, works well together. DJ - if you got all those nice fish on a centre pin, that's your story, stick to it .

    smoked chub

    TOM S & FISHERMAN---thanks for the info. you do not want these smoked fish in your house with women & children ! THEY STINK BAD ! there has to be somebody else on this message board that has eaten lake huron smoked chubs, that will tell you they have to be eaten outdoors ? they are tasty, but they stink ?

    smoked chub

    thanks DRIFTER-016---boy,brings back memories at denny's dam. the fella opened-up his cooler just like yours, filled with smoked lake huron chubs ! they are high in omega 3 fatty acids, more than sockeye salmon, greasy & wonderful to smoke, that's why they must stink sooo bad. lake huron & michigan don't have very many of them, zebra mussels eating their food source on the bottom ( plankton)- maybe ? ---read some google post.
