1 Sure-Fire [and Odd] Tip for Fishing in Canada
October 25, 2016
One of our guests took a trip to Herod Lake in September and reported something unusual: “We loved seeing the two bald eagles that hung out everyday above the Herod Falls at the south end of the lake. Interestingly enough, that was also one of the best places to catch fish as well.”
Those eagles knew were the fish were at!!
Fish is the primary food of bald eagles in this area. They’ll look for fish that spend time in the shallows, where it’s easy for an eagle to swoop down and grab a fish. Bald eagles can spot fish moving in the water from a hundred feet above, whether they’re perched in an old pine or flying over the water.
Eagles will stay on a lake in Northern Ontario as long as – you guessed it – the water is open and there are fish to eat.
The guest, Will, was able to get a picture of them – look closely at the white spots in the trees to see the Herod Lake fishing guides. Thanks in part to the eagles, his group brought in plenty of nice-sized Walleye.
So here’s a tip for next time you’re fishing in Northern Ontario – follow the eagles!
