I parked at a park close to the mouth at bronte (not sure of the name but it wasnt petro, it was in a neighborhood) and there was a no fishing sign. How is this possible if it is all open?

Town of Oakville imposed a no fishing zone between Lakeshore and Rebbeca after the MNR lifted the sanctuary status, you can only fish there if your in a boat

I just cant wrap my head around why the city would make a no shore fishing law when the MNR lifted the sanctuary status. Do they want to keep people from walking down there? because I assume it is ok to go down there without a fishing pole...and kids can still go down there and mess around without a fishing pole. So what is the real benefit to the city for making this no shore fishing law?

What if i were to wade through the river, would it be like wading through the river to fish private property?

Littering is the main reason, its only a matter of time until the gates are locked at petro park, this season is prime example, they kept the park locked until after the opener and I wont be surprised if it gets locked down as soon as kids soccer is done, if people don't start cleaning up after themselves we are all going to lose our shore access


water thru that stretch is too deep to wade but if you could wade it your good but don't step on shore with a rod cause then your trespassing

its not just littering its people gutting salmons and throwing them in bushes and it stinks like hell. To many males i guess some folk still cant tell between a male and a female.

Oakville is the least fishing friendly municipality on Lake O, there's been a longstanding feud between the entitled monied people who own prime waterfront real estate and the annual angler invasion. The provincial sanctuary was only a political one, once the Harris Tories were voted out it was repealed.

That's nothing compared to the BS the trolling guys go through at the Bronte ramp, up to and including alot of sail boat yachties vandalizing trailers of all the fishermen that disturb sailors trying to sleep off their hangovers on the weekends.

They did such a beautiful job down there at Petro this year with the new board walk, and they went in and cleared all the bushes and weeds, everything was open aside from the gardens they had going on, i walked down while the gates were still closed back at the end of april, and I was soo impressed, I went down last week, and looks like crap again down there. I never have gone further south than rebecca, but im tempted now just to walk in in the water and see what the big deal is between lakeshore and rebecca exactly. I wonder if some have water access.

Well. I dont see how the map is misleading. The rules for fishing around dams is the same no matter where you go.

Hi
Never fished this sysem before and it is close to my home in Guelph. Not asking for fishing locations just wondering where I can park legally to access the river. Once im there walking to find locations and less people is not an issue. Im looking at maps and having a hard time locating access spots

Thanks

You fish in that closed section, and the local gestapo will get you! They have nothing better to do around there. I bet if you're in a boat they still get you. I saw them charge a native last year, and he was near the bridge, and before the no fishing sign. We took off before Col. Klink got to us.

Are you talking about the no shore fishing area? Who was it that charged them?
