World Class Smallmouth Fly-fishing
We take every opportunity to pursue our legendary Ontario bronzebacks - it has been said many times that pound-for-pound this fish outfights anything in freshwater. We find them to be the perfect target for fly fishers because they eat a variety of foods that we imitate with fur and feather attached to a hook. Several Troutfitter exclusive fly patterns were developed to fuel our smallmouth bass addiction. Our Full Motion Crayfish, Full Motion Hex, Identity Crisis, Clearwater Craw, Custom Clouser and Redneck Rabbit were specifically designed with these battlers in mind.
Here in southern Ontario river smallmouth are ignored by most anglers, especially in the beautiful places we can take you by drift boat. Many of the waters of southern Ontario provide perfect habitat for river bass. Rivers like the Maitland, Saugeen and the Exceptional Waters reach of the Grand River are all exceptional bass factories. Troutfitter guides know where to find eager fish and beautiful surroundings to help you experience the best river smallmouth fishing on earth. See for yourself the fishing we have as we were featured in two episodes of the New Fly Fisher with Bill Spicer “ River Smallies” and “Dryfly Smallmouth” can be purchased at the New Fly Fisher web site.
