Need a family walk w/ trout scouting

Recommended Posts

A couple of weeks ago I took my family and some friends to watch the salmon at the dams on the Humber.

Everyone had a blast and another date was set for this weekend. I enjoyed the walk and the opportunity to scout some waters that I had not fished before.

 

Does anyone have some suggestions for a enjoyable family walking destination that is near some trout habitat, that I could have a look at. We are all fit and able, my 10 year old daughter is up to a challenge. I've fished the lower reaches of the Humber, Credit, Wilmot and Rouge. Its really more about a walk, than the fish but..... ;)

 

We would like to get out in the country, but not too far from downtown Toronto say 1/2 to 1hr.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)

Not too sure about an area but you probably arent actually going to spot many bows, they seem pretty darn good at hiding!

Try the hike down to the whirlpool down in The Falls.

I'ts beautiful down there this time of year, and quite an invigorating hike!

I probably wouldn't bring kids down there. The trail down can be a bit challenging.

If you are ever in the Collingwood area be sure to stop by the Thornbury Fish Ladder, it is a sight to see at this time of year. There is also a park just south of that in Clarksburg where fish stage before heading up river.

The Ganny is a nice sight ...You could also try the Streetsville dam on the Credit...The Humber with its multiple Dams is still your best bet though.

here's a pic of how the Whirlpool looks at this time of the year!!

This pic is of how we get down there,it usually takes a good 10 min down the stairs but only 2 min this way(not for the very young or old to try)

It's a beautiful place to see and anyone can make it up and down the stairs no age limit....just be careful when you get to the bottom as it is a very fast current ,if you stay on the trails you won't have nothing to worry about!! just not the trail in the pic above

 

Have a great time,wherever you decide

Remember, there's no fishing within 30m downstream of the wiers..

 

Some great pools up from Old Mill on the Humber though.. You might just get lucky!

 

Good luck
