Fishing

Each year, Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) releases hundreds of rainbow trout at our parks. So whether you are casting from shore or want to rent a boat, try your luck at landing the big one! Please respect catch limits posted at the parks.

fishingNO LIVE BAIT POLICY
TRCA has adopted a NO LIVE BAIT policy at all of our conservation areas. Invasive species, which are commonly transported in bait buckets, enter lakes when people dump their left-over bait and water. Once unwanted species enter water systems, they aggressively compete with native species for food and habitat.

Please help us in our continuing effort to be free of invasive species and provide a great fishing experience for years to come. For more information about the threat of invasive species, please visit www.invadingspecies.com or www.mnr.gov.on.ca.
