2017 Evening Fishing Schedule/Sites

Postby Todd B. on Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:09 pm

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Evening fishing program.

Outings are usually scheduled fore midweek (Tuesday - Thursday) usually based on the weather forecast, however my schedule and/or the weather forecast may require a different night be used. Recommended gear will also be listed along with any "strongly" suggested safety items.

In the event of bad weather, alternate "Rain Days" will be posted. Cancellations will be posted by noon of the scheduled day. It is recommended that you check the schedule before heading out.

Looking forward to seeing everyone out on the water!

This is not an official OFS Event. Anglers are reminded that there is always the possibility of accidents/injuries, especially when wading. Anglers are responsible for their own safety and should always use proper safety equipment (PFDs, wading staffs, etc).


Wednesday, June 7th
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: Dow's Lake Arboretum (fishing from shore, backwater around the pedestrian bridges)
Parking: Fletcher Wildlife Garden, Hartwell Locks, Arboretum (top of hill - limited spaces)
Species: panfish, Crappie, Carp
Notes: We're starting off on dry land for those that don't have wading gear yet. Please be mindful of other people/pets that may be nearby when you're casting. If you're going to target crappie a #10 baitfish pattern such as an Olive Palmer Chenille is a good choice. The most popular setup is to suspend the fly under an indicator. If you do not have indicators a Dry/Dropper tandem will work just as well. Last season a squirmy wormy was a very hot pattern.

Thursday, June 13th
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Jock R.
Parking: Jock River Landing Park (off of Prince of Wales Dr, just south of Woodroff)
Species: Walleye, panfish, red horse, fall fish, Bass (though currently OOS), Muskie (in upper reaches)
Notes: Wading gear is required, a staff is always a good idea. After you pass under the bridge, there is a path upstream along the right hand bank, that provides quick access to the river. I you prefer to fish the mouth, you're better off wading from the south shore out into the Rideau. The water level has come down and is nearly ideal for this reach. Heavy buggers are a good choice for the local walleye as are waking dries to tease any active fish.

Wednesday, June 21st
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Rideau R. @ Black Rapids (Eastern side)
Parking: Street parking used be available on Mary Dr. (see map)
Species: Walleye, panfish, red horse, fall fish, Bass, Muskie, Pike, Carp
Notes: From Mary Dr. there is a path through the playground that will take you to the access road for the dam. At the dam, you will need to walk along the wall, nearly to the end, where you can find spot (on the right) where you can get down to the shore. Please be VERY careful on the wall as people have suffered bad falls in the past. A wading staff and bug juice are also highly recommended.
