This year OKFS is taking on a very different format that enables more winners. It will be a heavy multi-species rather than bass focus. There are only two 2-day events South River and Haliburton. Five events with a kayak for first place at each single day event plus a cash prize to the Champ. There will be a kayak raffled off at each of the two day events.
A Female Angler division will be held at South River if we are able to get 10+ female anglers to attend. This will allow for a kayak prize to this new division.
Series Champ is determined by the individual with the highest points total of any three multi-species combination. Single day totals only, allowing single day results from two-day events also. Upgrading allowed throughout duration of series.

This was a busy year for us and guiding river smallies!
We had numerous trips run between the prime season Aug-Oct, and the big fish did't disappoint. We ran four consecutive trips that say Smallmouth Bass 20" and larger! We even had one that was close to 22" in the third week of October.
Make sure to look us up early next year because we unfortunately were not able fulfill all the booking requests.
Steelhead arrived a wee bit earlier to Southern Ontario this fall than they normally do. We were doing well catching them in the first week of October and it will only improve into December.
