Conceived and popularized on the U.S. west coast, drift boats were the first river craft used by serious anglers. Despite widespread use in the U.S. and Canada’s west, the drift boat craze has not yet taken hold in southern Ontario. What this means is, that with a drift boat, we can access vast expanses of rivers that receive little and often no pressure. GRO guests have access to the best fly fishing in Ontario.

GRO’s drift boat operators are all veterans of the trade and utilize all of the available rivers in Southern Ontario. These are some of the top fly fishing guides in the province!

$550.00 + HST (flat rate, max 2 anglers per boat)

Includes a full day’s tour & lunch (including non-alcoholic beverage)
