With the best conditions just around the corner, time to look at getting everyone together.

I believe that at last word it was going to be The Big Head in Meaford. I'll throw out the weekend end of the 20th for a date to start with. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Ken,

One of my favorite rivers. Even for the river walk, it is hard to beat. It has a lot of water, and just about every type of holding water and structure.

Now or never......I think that meeting at Timmies would be the best way to start this day. From there a good plan would be to split guys and gear so that we have vehicles at both ends of the river (Its a LOOONNG walk). Sorry for the poor planning as planning a river trip for me goes like tise....fishing tommorrow? Yea. Meet me at the bridge at 6:30. Done. laugh.gif

If anyone needs driving directions, or motel info let me know and I will see what I can do.

What time are we meeting at Timmies in Meaford?
I hit a local trib for a couple of hours this afternoon hoping for a steelhead warmup for Meaford. The water was super clear and low. There were only a few old boots swimming about but managed to go 4 for 4 on some small steel.

Hopefully the big boys are waiting in Meaford.

steelhead1975,

The more the merrier.

Fly1,

If we are looking at a fishing trip, 5:30. If we are looking to get together to walk a river and have some laughs, 8:00.

My thought is to meet-up, grab a Tim's and spilt up gear and cars. Park half at the exit and start at the other end. This is a fair piece of river and the walk both ways makes for a really long day. This way, we can linger at pools and runs and enjoy without having to race.

8:00 it is. Timmie's is on the right hand side of hwy 26. You know red sign, same building that they use for all thier stores tongue.gif . We need way to "identify" ourselves. Waders and vests won't do it in this town biggrin.gif . Look for a "Canadian Fly Fisher" cap, and a Old Navy hoodie. We will be up there Friday night in Thornbury for the morning bite then heading to Meaford to meet up with you guys.

steelhead1975, Carpooling is a great idea.....I know that there is a dude in Oshawa that would be more then happy to share a ride with you wink.gif .

Any problems call me on my cell: (519)636-9931.

Bring your slickers boys!!

Five Day

That rain that is predicted for Sat could play some Head Magic, more so if it comes late Friday night, and then tapers off early morning. Watch this river it is amazing.

Packed, and set to go. We'll be up tomorrow night and see you guys Saturday morning at the Tim's.

Hope that no one is afraid of dogs as I'll have the big lad with me. Just a big puppy, wouldn't harm a flea.

sh1975,

That is the easiest and the fastest, 3hrs flat.
