It has been a while since my last report. From what I have been reading the conditions are good on all rivers. The fish are starting to move up the Ganny towards the fish ladder. In fact there have been quite a few fish go through t the fishway already. It looks like we are about two to three weeks ahead of schedule for the steelhead run.
The question is are there going to be any fish left in the river come the opener which is a bit later than most years, April 29th.
There are a few good reports on he message board regarding walleye fishing. If you plan a trip to Quinte give Don Baker a call for current ice conditions.
If you are interested in first hand Quinte conditions and where to go,
dial up Mr. Baker at :
613 354-9280 Don will be happy to point you to where the fish are holding.
Summary: ( Port Hope )
Salmon and Steelhead:
If I hear of any good results from the lake I'll post them.
If you catch a lake trout that still has the complete small fin attached just before its tail on its back, please let me know. I'm keeping count for the MNR this year. The unclipped fin is an indication that the fish is not stocked.
