I was out this morning walking around after my nightshift. I spotted this area at King and Olympic in Dundas. It leads into the west pond of Cootes Paradise. I saw a pretty big fish surface but wasn't sure what type it would be. Has anyone ever fished around here? What's in there? b98da1def05a3016232f32a1e2b46036.jpg60bf65e7d16e529657f305210fabc87a.jpg

Also I remember seeing a story last year about them releasing 1000 pike into Cootes Paradise. Anyone ever fish in there? I walk in there all the time entering off York near the arboretum and walking along the water. Can you fish in there of is the RBG private property?

If find it hard to believe there weren't any carp in there normally but they have some program to screen out invasive species.

There's a pair of bald eagles with a nest on cootes so there are definitely plenty of fish in there :)

I've only lived in Hamilton for a few of years. I'm still getting to know the area. I'd never actually been down in that area before. Thanks for your replies.
