2018 Wil's Swim with the fishes fundraising campaign

For Immediate Release:
Orillia Ontario. Award winning outdoor writer and seminar host Wil Wegman of Bradford Ontario is recognized far more within the angling community than among high level swimmers. He was voted into the Canadian Angler Hall of Fame, in 2017, so he might be better known for catching fish than swimming with them.

Chautauqua County NY - An Early Season Bass Fishing Trip

Southern Ontario has some remarkable bass fishing! I love fishing our home waters from the day after our season opens (3rd or 4th Saturday in June) until it closes November 30th.  During that period of time all the bass I catch, are live released – to help sustain our local fisheries and to provide the same joy I had for other anglers lucky enough to catch those same fish.  Yet despite these great opportunities … we are still missing out on some exceptional catch and release fishing experiences, and that is why I like many other Ontario anglers, make a short trip south of the border into nearby New York in the spring.

Milt the Talking Musky - Helping Youngsters Read

For several decades I’ve loved musky fishing but it’s only been the last ten years that the mighty muskellunge has become such an integral part of my career as a resource management technician in Ontario. Every spring for 2-5 weeks I’m trapnetting up on Gloucester Pool near Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay to capture enough ripe female and male musky for an egg collection. We fertilize the eggs on the boat and they are then delivered to the musky hatchery at Fleming College in Lindsay Ontario. Here the eggs hatch, and fry, then fingerlings are cared for under the watchful eye of the hatchery manager and musky whisperer-Mark Newell. When late fall comes,  I stock all those 8-12 inch muskie into Lake Simcoe, an hour north of Toronto Ontario with help from good friends at Muskies Canada. We also electro fish for them as part of our ongoing monitoring work in Lake Simcoe. This is all part of the Lake Simcoe Muskie Restoration Program.
