Great Lake and Lake King William Report 2011-02
Went up to Great Lake on Friday afternoon with Glen, young Jack and Bailey. Fished in Canal Bay and we managed three nice browns, I managed two on emergers and young Jack got one trolling. He lost three as well. South westerly breeze and quite cool, we saw a few taking gum beetles off the top, but things generally a bit tough.
Next day we decided to head up to beautiful Lake King William to fish in the Guelph Basin. We got there around 11 am to a calm lake, what a spectacular place to fish. The fish were only small but the senery makes up for that. Fished all the shallow bays in the basin and we caught 28 nice fat trout, five being rainbows. We caught fish on dry fly,soft plastics and some trolling and lost heaps as well. The lake level down around 3 metres, so no mud exposed which was good. Bailey and Jack loved it up there and can’t wait to go back. Cheers for now.
