Hi all, new fisher here.

 

I'm looking to go fishing this upcoming weekend in around Oakville. I was wondering around this time of year and given the warm weather what is a good area to fish if I'm looking to land crappie or perch?

 

Thanks!

Welcome!

 

First, check the regs. For a lot of fish most of Oakville is closed north of Lakeshore Rd. South of Lakeshore fishing is allowed year-round (but check the regs, don't take my word).

 

The only place that I've fished south of Lakeshore is Bronte Harbour. I've never fished it in the spring however. Maybe someone else can pipe up on here. Maybe some spring salmon/trout and pike?

Lots of little ponds north east and west of Oakville . Be aware of ice conditions though with all the rain we got. Learn to explore with Google maps. Not to many people will give up honey holes on the net.

Grenadier pond in Toronto has lots of black crappie in the spring time. Mountsberg reservoir which is west of Oakville has good perch fishing but there is only tiny perch if you are fishing from shore. So you should probably take a kayak out if you have one.

I landed a crappie in Oakville last year. About as far from the lake as you can get.

I was definitely surprised.

Of course there is perch there...any body of water connected to any major lake will have perch....you can catch perch all year round.

In May there are a few crappie and perch off Bronte pier, on the marina side. Once the water warms up they disappear tho, I guess they go into the deeper parts of the lake with everything else.
