Goderich Regoin/Maitland/Nine Mile specifically

Recommended Posts

I went out to the Goderich area today, mainly to see if the run had started. To my dismay it hasn't, both the Nine Mile and Maitland are just short of barren. We saw a few salmon at either of the falls, with a school of about 10-15 at the second - but they were too spooked to bite. Especially when a couple of guys with fly fishing gear walked right over them (causing them to completely abandon the second falls all together). no action under the highway bridge at all. Saw two rainbows taken at Port Albert, but that was it for Nine Mile action. Wondering if anyone in the area knows of any other good spots/has local access to these two rivers in particular (its about a 120km drive for me to get out there (from Sarnia)) and if someone has that kind of access, wouldnt mind posting in this thread when the run starts. I hope im not making a repeat thread, forgive me if I am - I'm new here so I'll make mistakes, I'm sure. I've missed the run inthe Goderich area the last 2 years, both years seemed that the water was too low and the temperature was too high (one of them I remember wadding around in shorts and sandles around the sept/october mark - whereas about 5-6 years ago the runs were in full flight by the last week of september). So yea, if anyone has word on any other tribs in the area or a little farther (hows the action in Auburn or Own Sound), feel free to let the rest of us know, so to speak. or if anyone wouldnt mind giving some sort of updates throughout this next week on action in the Nine Mile/Maitland area - that would be great. Sorry for rambling!

    • Out of Goderich

      Went straight out of Goderich yesterday and fished in 85-95' of water. Caught a nice 5 lbs Rainbow and a 19" Walleye. Marked lots of fish throughout the water column. Great morning on the water. Anyone else fishing this area. Wondering how others have been doing. Only saw one other boat.

    • 16 mile creek access?

      I live in Mississauga and often drive past 16 mile creek as it crosses Britannia (near Terra Garden Center) or on Lower Baseline\Trafalgar. I only fish bigger lakes but i always wonder what species are available aside from Salmon and Trout and where fishing is allowed along the river in Milton and Oakville. I don't see any signs posted in these areas mentioned above. Appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

    • Six Mile Lake, Crappie?

      Guys, it has been about 30 years since I visited this lake, but we went up last Friday to launch and try and find Crappie. We tried the week before in Port Severn. I know both of these bodies of water hold Crappie, but we could not find a single one. I'm thinking we were just too early for that area? The water temps were only 50 - 53 deg F. Lot's of current in Port Severn. Six Mile Lake is beautiful enough. We launched at the Provincial park. Have you guys had much luck fishing Six Mile? I
