the weather is warming up and we are finally beginning to experience seasonal temps.

I had my first fish of the year last weekend but it's still slow with local water temps at around 10 degree's - a couple of friends are still to receive their first bites.

have a great trip! if you have time in montreal then make sure you sample some poutine!

it's been a really late spring here this year so everything is a little behind on waking up. the water levels are low at the moment too (approx 2 feet) and we are hoping they open up some of the dams and let the snow melt down. last year we had been catching for a good few weeks at the end of April - right now, I don't know of any fish coming out of the normal spring spots yet.

we will be at Long Sault for the end of May / beginning of June and can't wait.

Make sure you have waterproofs and warm clothes at that time of the year as it is right on the edge of warming up for summer. It's the difference between thermal coats and shorts and t shirts over a couple of days.

I have found continental mugga's to be the best hooks for the river there and I get away with 30lb braid for our spots, however I always have a spool of 80lb leader in my bag just in case. Forget all the delicate presentaions that you use in the uk - simple and strong is all you need here.

As for baits - for some reason we catch more on boilies at LS than anywhere else in Ontario. Last year we found that orange mainline fruitella's and the essential B5 corkdust pop ups / b5 pink popups did the business for us.

May/June before the spawn is usually a great time to go. I live in Canada (Canadian born and raised, but grew up fishing with British immigrants).

65-80lb PowerPro mainline is definitely the way to go because of the zebra mussels. Depending on which stretch you fish, you can normally get away with 4-8oz leads. Last year the water was fairly high because of the amount of snow and rain we got Ė Parts of Montreal were almost in flood stage for a while.

Thereís lots of water to cover on the St Lawrence. In spring, warm, shallow bays should fish well with hundreds (if not thousands) of fish waiting to spawn.

Itís been a few years since I last fished the St Lawrence, but Iím definitely itching to get back. Iíve been spending more and more time exploring the lower Niagara river.

Not very far. Iíve fished the bays several times. If the wind blows into you itís often a fish a chuck.
Paulís great heíll put us all on fish. All yellow baits work best.
It can be cold first thing and / or blazing hot. You will need waders. Email me for my info if you wish, otherwise Iíll meet you there. Cheers mike
