For many fly fishers catching a brown trout on a dry fly, streamer or nymph is like nirvana.

One of the least known locations in Ontario for big browns is the upper credit river near Orangeville. Graham Bristow from A Perfect Drift Guide Service located in Orangeville has been fishing the waters of the Credit River for over 20 years. His vast knowledge of the system has helped make him the best guide to call upon to hunt for trophy sized brown trout.

We are talking brown trout that run between 18 to 28 inches. For most of the fishing on the Credit River you only need a floating line to use in combination with dry flies, nymphs and streamers.

Graham can provide you with all the flies you will need and help you locate great accommodations. There are numerous B&Bs and affordable motels/hotels in the area to make your stay comfortable. We strongly recommend you contact Graham through his website to book a trip.
