Near Fergus and Elora is a world class catch and release tailwater fishery which has some of Canada’s best Brown Trout fishing, whether it be with a dry fly, nymph, streamer or emerger.
Grand River Brown Trout are known for their selective nature as fishing pressure has taught them to use discretion in feeding.
It is quite an accomplishment to catch and release a 20″ fish though plenty abound!
Major Hatches on The Grand River – Upper extend all through the season from May to October but the river is known for heavy Caddis, Midges, Hendrickson, Cahill, Fox, Blue Winged Olive, Isonychia and Tricos.
Please note that The Grand River – Upper Watershed contains areas that are single barbless, no live bait and catch and release sections.
