Information on the Bighead river in southern Ontario. This river is probably best known for its run of steelhead rainbow trout in the fall and spring. It is also host to an excellent cold water fishery in its upper reaches. The Bighead River is a river in southern Ontario which flows from the Niagara Escarpment near Chatsworth, Ontario and empties into Nottawasaga Bay, an inletof Georgian Bay, at Meaford, Ontario. There are several hiking trails along the river including ‘Trout Hollow Trail’ and sections of the Bruce Trail. It is a small river. Really only the locals and seasoned veterans know the upper reaches due to its thrashingly thick bush and untouched banks. Private property conceals most of the river.
