Toronto Fishing Locations Provide a Variety of Species Year-Round

A friend of mine recently showed me the Toronto fishing website that breaks down all the great locations in our city to catch a variety of fish.

Bluffer's Park Marina for Toronto Fishing
Bluffer’s Park Marina – “The dominant feature at Bluffer’s Park is the large, 500-slip marina and double launching ramp.”

The site is divided into Toronto fishing locations and under each destination, the author describes the area, the types of fish, the time of year that is best or legal to fish there, how to access the area and any other pertinent information one would want to know.

The site also lists a bunch of fishing resorts located throughout Ontario. With over 400,000 Rivers, Lakes and Streams in Ontario, a fisherman will have an abundance of fresh catch and a great outdoor experience without leaving the city or the province.

Here are the places that the site lists in Toronto as well as some of the fish that can be caught at each place. Some run 12-months of the year while others have permitted times of the year. Some trout and salmon can even be fished in February. Check out these locations and learn more about them on the Toronto Fishing website at –
