World Class Smallmouth Fly-fishing

We guides here at Troutfitters take every opportunity to pursue these legendary Ontario bronzebacks - it has been said many times by numerous ardent anglers like ourselves - that pound-for-pound this fish outfights anything in freshwater. We find them to be the perfect targets for us fly fishers because they eat a variety of foods that we can imitate easily with a few feathers and fur arrangements on a hook. Be sure to check out our exclusive fish catching favourites.

We are surrounded by awesome bass fishing. We guide all of it. Even waters we have never fished before because we love it so much! However, our go to trips include the Maitland River, Saugeen river and the lower Grand river. Choose our walk n wade option or treat yourself to the best way to fish these awesome fish - take a drift boat tour. Our remote water ability and quiet approach will absolutely spoil you in ways you will only want to repeat many times more! Our current Pricing for all our on-the-water fly fishing events.
