Fisherman's Paradise - The Bighead River
Meaford Ontario Canada

The Town of Meaford is located on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, on highway 26 between Collingwood and Owen Sound. Well known for it's Fishing and Apple Orchards, this town of just over 4000 people offers a full range of goods and services and a Home Town atmosphere that will make you want to live here. The Bighead River, which makes this community stand out from all the others, is world famous for it's Rainbow Trout runs in the spring and fall. In late summer the Chinook Salmon run starts up the river and provides lots of excitement for both the novice and the expert angler. If you're a boat fisherman you'll love fishing Georgian Bay off Meaford with it's cold clear water. An even lake bottom makes downrigging a cinch and you can find deep water within a quarter mile of shore. Starting at ice out the majority of boaters sit jigging at the mouth of the harbour. Soon after that the downrigging gets going and the boat fishing is excellent, all summer long and late into the fall. If you're looking to catch rainbows, browns, skamania, laketrout/splake, chinook salmon or whitefish, Meaford is the place to come to.
