Thanks for the help, guys. Much appreciated.
I've fished both sections before, from Fergus all the way to below Elora, so I kind of know what to expect. However, I mainly nymphed and used dries every other time I've been there, so wanted to try and consciously target some bigger fish. Single hand or double, it just doesn't seem like a lot of people swing flies up there-stripping streamers, sure, but not much about classic presentations.
Despite it being a holiday, I was hoping that the tube hatch wouldn't be in full swing yet, as it's early in the year still. We have no problem walking from access points, so finding some room likely won't be an issue. While busy, the Tailwater fails in comparison to some of the more popular steelhead rivers around here in terms of crowds and shenanigans, so I'm not too worried about traffic.
