French river

Recommended Posts

anyone ever fish that stretch of river?

 

I'm renting a cottage there in sept. and was hoping someone has some info on the fishing in this area. I understand I'll be locked between two sets of rapids.

Most rapids on the French will hold all kinds of smallies, fish tube jigs and crank baits. Walleye should also be in there...but I wouldn't know much about them :wallbash:

The camp is just upstream from Flat Rapids themselves, I've fished there in the fall for large walleye.

Flat rapids are easily navigable with care and I'd suggest you do it. Best fishing imo is from Flat Rapids down.

For walleye troll at night with the largest floating Rapala.

The train trestle just downstream from Flat Rapids is always a good spot.

I usually anchor there just upstream from the train bridge. Large 4-5" sucker or chub minnows are deadly that time of year.

    • Great Week on Nip/Upper French

      Another great week at Sandy Haven Camp on Nip/Upper French.  Been going there for over 35 years and its about as good as it's ever been.   Three generations of Dietz boys hit the Nipissing grand slam.  Boated two muskies, had hooks in two more and numerous follows.   The walleye bite was hot with 40-50 fish days and limits of keepers.   Bass fishing, smallies and largemouth, was real good too.   That place is on fire!

    • Long-weekend on the Massassaga PP _ Moon River

      Fished the Moon on Sunday. Water was highest I've seen in years so extra caution was taken boating around.  Deer flies were out in force, little buggers had an ankle feast.  The fishing was on-fire: between me and my gal we caught about 30 smallmouth between 2-4lbs all through the day, average was around 3lbs albeit no nickles on this trip.  Drop-shotting flukes and slammers was the ticket.  Sometimes you would be reeling one in and there would be one or two smallies following with your hooked u

    • Should I consider the french river?

      Hello there, just got back last week from my yearly Canadian trip with my father. We have been going to a location that has good smallmouth fishing but mediocre walleye fishing unless you are able to get into back lakes which we are not able to with my setup. I have an old 17 foot aluminum boat with a 9.9 that goes 15 mph with two people and our gear. It has been remodeled and is a much nicer than what you can rent most places so I bring my own boat. Where we currently go we end up moving around
