Took the day off work to fish with my friend from Soo North who had to come back home for some business and had a few more flies for me for my trip to Alaska, the only problems all the rivers were hi so we thought we give the Nine Mile a try. A smaller river but always teaming with fish.You can only fish it 200 feet from the lake so not a lot a river to fish. The fishing was tough with only a couple feet of visibility if that .Saw a couple fish caught, got to try out my new Redington switch fly rod and managed to land a couple carp that for some reason didn't think was camera worthy. So after a couple hours of flogging the river we decided to go to the dam and watch the fish trying to jump over the falls. I took a small video witch i will post at the end of this blog
After about 20 minutes viewing the fish jumping got the urge to get my rod wet again so we headed to the Maitland knowing it was very high but what the heck a day off might as well try. Well got some good casting in there too. With all this practice casting hope I have a good trip and do some catching in Alaska.
Joe in the picture below travelled all the way down from the Soo to wet his line in the mighty Maitland
Well here is the video of the fish trying to over come the falls on their journey to propagate their species
