Living in brampton, you dont get the best fishing experience that you would get anywhere north of the city. BUT!

Recently Ive been using google maps to spot out all the local ponds and stuff and fished them.

I've caught some beauty LM bass and there are PIKE in brampton, i suggest everyone thats been looking for sports in brampton check these local "storm management ponds" that are going up in the new divisons. Ive been having way too much fun at them on nights i cant leave the city.

1-4 pound LM bass in Norton Park Place as well!!

If you guys want some tips on the spots PM me on here!

this is my first post.!

Hello Neighbour.... I too live in Brampton. Ive never fished in any of the Storm drains but a long time ago when my kids were little I used to take my kids fishing in Heartlake Conservation area where the kids had great fun catching trout both from the bank or from a canoe. I think Parks Canada stocked the wee lake with a couple of different fish species back then but I don't know if they continued doing it.

I caught a Whale in Loafers Lake but it wasn't any good so I had to throw it back.... too bad it had a puncture (flat tire) Hehehe

I'm sure there are different types of fish in the ponds & small lakes in Brampton but I don't know the quality, or quantity or the size of the fish that can be caught but certainly are probably good enough for the kids to take Dad out and teach him how to fish.

The nearest River that has quality fish would be the Credit River but parts close to Brampton will probably be closed for the season & would have to check that out before you set out.

Good job on catching the LargeMouth Bass and welcome to the site!!!

Professors Lake is good for bass but they're dwindling in numbers. Heart lake isn't bad, but same issue with stock depleting. Ken Willians conservation area is also within a 10-15 minute drive. Tons of good fishing within 30 minutes of Brampton but as RonnieTO said, numerous closures are in place right now.

I remember Norton park now, many years ago you could rent a canoe there in fact it was my first experience with canoes LOL

Never fished there but you are handy for a beer or two at the Bramalea Legion on #7

Yeah I'm not sure if there are anything of interest in most of them as that's all they are for is water run off.

Be nice if the city stocked some of the bigger ones

I usually fish at Professors and have caught some nice bass and perch there. I've heard there are monster carp and other species there too.
I also have fished at Southlake and seen some huge Koi, although I only caught sunfish.
Thinking about going again this friday.
