Re: Sarnia/St Clair River?
I have a friend who bank fishes in the spring with 300 grain heads and deceivers and catches big walleye and Brown Trout at night walking the bank. But for the most part the St. Claire River is designed to not be a good fly fishing river. It's deep, very strong current, and the bank drops right off which discourages wading. On that kind of water, you have to look for situations when the fish are chasing food on top which does happen occasionally in the spring. Another opportunity are the boat canals in spring for pike, panfish and bass. And the channels and bays in the St. Claire flats provide exceptional flyfishing well into June. I use to wade the American side of Lake Huron for Salmon early and Carp later just above the bridge near the lighthouse.
