On the hunt for small lakes outside of the Urban GTA where you can't hear traffic, all you see is green and blue, and you have readily accessible shore fishing. Lake Wilcox was good, but the publicly accessible areas are busy and shallow. Cooks bay had one area I found with good fishing (Adeline Park), but was also busy and surrounded by private residences. The rest of Lake Simcoe seems to be mostly private property. Mary lake in King city has no fishing signs posted on the only easily accessible side of the lake, on the Mary Lake Augustinian Monestary property. The Oak Ridges section of the Bruce Trail passes around the North and west sides of the lake, but it's not easily accessible. Next to Mary Lake is Seneca College King City Campus. This is a bigger lake then Mary, and looks promising, but it's surrounded by the campus (private property) so it's not clear if fishing is permitted.

There are a few pockets around GTA that you can hardly hear traffic noise. Milne Park in Markham. If you're into carp and catfish, then you're in the right spot. And then there is Toogood Pond in Unionville, there's some nice bass action if you know your way around but it's a bit busier with the joggers and walkers around. Lot's of Cougars and Silver Foxes btw....

There is definitely NO fishing on Seneca college. The place is looked over by MNR.if you get caught, you can risk fineand or lose fishing license.

They're vicious down there. The suburbs are a bit low key and subtle with their pounces...

Fishing at Seneca lake is prohibited because the land is owned by the college...I learned this the hard way when I had my license taken away for the season and was heart-broken..

I did not see any no-fishing signs anywhere btw...sucks

A ministry guy came to the college and took your license away for fishing there?
