June vs August

4 posts in this topic

We have done a fly in fishing trip in Ontario the last three years. We have always gone the second week of June. Our group is talking about moving the trip to the last week of July or first week of August. What are some of the Pro's and Con's of switching months?

I'm primarily a pike fisherman and I prefer August. My reasons are the mosquitoes and insects usually are not a as much of a problem and there generally seems to be fewer people fishing at that time of year, which we like, and the weather tends to be pretty stable- not as many rainy cold days to contend with. For Pike, if the lake you fish has decent cabbage weedbeds you will find some decent pike. The weedbeds usually will have some walleyes too. I think the fish may be a little more difficult to locate in August as opposed to June, but as for our group the advantages of August out weigh those in June. I don't think I have ever had a trip in August that I thought was bad, and that's @ 15 years and several different lakes. Just my opinion! Rick Hill

For sure the best part of going to Canada in late July, early August is that the weather is a LOT more stable. Warmer days and some warmer nights with some incredible thunder storms. Without A/C some times those cabins get real stuffy. You'll find that you will have to fish a little deeper to find the bigger fish. The biggest problem going later in the year is that you have to wait that much longer for the trip to start.....

I have been doing fly ins for over 15 years and have gone every month of the season and they have been good in there own way so my thought is if you have always gone in June try August!

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
