Quick Question about Earl Bales Park

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

 

Just wanted to ask a question about the park - Has anyone ever fished there? Are fish known to run through the area? Just curious if anyone's gone there before...

 

Here's the map of the place.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Rob

According to MNR's Urban fishing in the GTA put out by their Aurora office; they list G Ross Lord park Dufferin north of Finch has having brown bullhead, carp, creek chub, goldfish, pumpkinseed, rock bass and white sucker.

 

Hope this helps, I'll see if I can get you a site to download the publication.

The River flows straight through there but I have never seen anyone fishing. I doubt there is much in that stretch as it is canalized and fairly shallow with little structure.

i have seen people fish for (and catch) carp and bullhead at G Ross Lord, have also caught tiny pumpkinseed over there. I probably should try fishing for carp there with it being only a 10 minute drive from my place, the smell/color of the water kinda turns me off though.

There are carp in G Lord Ross. But, as noted by others, it is not a very scenic or pleasant place to fish. If you're looking for urban fishing, you're better off going downtown to The Beaches or The Islands.

Yeah... actually they just re-informed me its "G Lord Ross" that where we'll be going to this Saturday.

 

Thanks for the input none the less :)
