Fishing the Elora Gorge

This past Friday I did something I haven’t done in a long time, go fishing. I went up for a day of fishing and photography at the Elora Gorge Conservation Area on the Credit River. I haven’t been up to the Elora Gorge in several years and I remember it as a great trout fishing spot. The Grand river on it’s northern stretches has always been fantastic fishing country with smallmouth bass and brown trout plentiful. Sadly it appears that since the last time I’ve been here, a pesky little invader has taken over the river; the round goby. Those little buggers have pretty much taken over the river, I’d caught probably close to 70-80 goby’s on Friday as compared to two trout and five bass. This was sad, very sad as these little fish destroy other fish stocks by eating their eggs and out competing them for space. Once I got tired of hooking Goby’s I went out exploring and shooting pictures which can be found here.
