Bass Fishing

When the trout aren’t biting


Ontario Bass River Guide

 Ontario River Bass or river smallmouth bass can be big and plentiful!

Many anglers start fishing bass in late August when the trout rivers start to get tough due to warm water. Some pools can hold dozens of nice sized bass that are willing to take a well presented fly, a lure or bait.

A Perfect Drift Guide Company provides guided trips by foot or by boat for bass, pike and musky.

In some cases all species can be caught on the same trip.

Bass fishing with a fly rod, spinning rod or Centerpin rod can be a blast with dozens of fish caught per day possible.

When the bass are active you can catch them on the surface with top water flies and lures.

If you’ve ever wanted to float down a river on a comfortable river boat casting the banks, pools and logs for some big bass consider booking a trip between the 3rd Saturday in June and September 30th.

Our Bass Rivers: Although we only guide for bass on the upper Grand river now, there are many rivers that have bass in them.
