Fishing The Beatty Saugeen

Fishing the Beatty Saugeen River

This is a really nice smaller tributary of the Saugeen River. Angler interested in fishing the Beatty Saugeen river could catch steelhead, brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout.

It is roughly 4o feet long and averages around 15 feet in its middle sections. The river enters the South Saugeen river near the town of Hanover before entering the main Saugeen river shortly after.

It has good hatches but can be tough to wade and fish with all the wood and log jams.

Some of it is also slow flat frog water and some of it has some nice riffle water which is perfect for fly fishing.

Anglers interested in fishing the Beatty Saugeen will find access difficult because it is mostly private property but I have a few access spots that we guide our customers. You may be able to access some nice water through a private campsites.

Also this river has special regulations and does not normally open to fishing until June 1st so check the OMNR fishing regulations first before you go and fish here

New to Fly Fishing and Centerpin fishing? That’s Ok, you’re not alone.

Brand new anglers ask me all the time about what rods and reels and other gear that I recommend, or they ask me about my best flies, best methods or even which rivers are good to fish. I simply got to the point where I couldn’t keep up with the questions anymore, there just wasn’t enough time in the day, so I build a website that cover’s all of that. You should checkout our sister site where we tell you exactly what gear you need and tips and tricks to help you get started. Check out www.ontariotroutandsteelhead.com
