Tributary Fishing in 2 Weeks - in Cobourg Area

Recommended Posts

I am a Colorado fly fisherman who's headed to the Cobourg area (east of Oshawa) to fish the tributaries for what I believe are some big fish (15-20 pounders?). This will be quite a different experience from fishing the streams and lakes in the Rockies.

Can anyone be so kind as to suggest what type and size of flies I might want to use? I hear green is key.

Also, would an 8 pound fly rod used for fishing Bonefish in Mexico be sufficient or should I get something heftier?

Thanks very much for your help.

An 8 weight fly rod is good enough. Streamers in white, brown, olive and purple will take fish. Egg patterns like Glow bugs, estez flies in orange or oregon cheese will also take fish.

Why waste your time fishing Cobourg Creek when you have the Ganaraska River only a 10 minute drive west? And as stated, a 7/8 weight rod would be more than satisfactory as I use an 11.5' 8 weight fly rod blank. Cobourg Creek only has about 300' of good fishing and then there is a lot of shallow runs.....

Thank you both for your helpful information.

The Ganaraska River sounds like a good option. How far north out of Port Hope can you go that's public water? How far up do the fish run? Also, is it crowded with a lot of people fishing?

Thanks again. I appreciate the help and direction.
