Anyone ever fished LAKESHORE and BATHURST area?

Recommended Posts

Hey OFC'ers,


Last night, Jip and I drove around looking for other spots along Lakeshore in Toronto that we could fish. Came across THIS SPOT along BATHURST and LAKESHORE area.


I was just wondering - Has anyone ever fished there? I noticed its a terminal of sorts and that there's pay parking...but I'm sure with a lil 'charm' you can convince the attendant that you're only there to fish. I even spoke with a driver that makes regular stops to the area - he told me he's seen pike swim through there.....hmmmm?.....Anyway....back to my question(s)...


1) Has anyone ever fished there?


2) What kinds of fish have been known to be caught?


Any and All input would be GREATLY appreciated!


Thanks in Advance,

The terminal at the foot of Bathurst and Lakeshore is for the island airport ferry. It is operated by Porter. During business hours, the ferry goes back and forth across the channell and creates a huge backflow. I believe that there is also a high seawall along that section which would make landing anything you caught difficult.


If you decide to give it a try, I would be interested in reading about your results.


Another option to consider for shore fishing is at Spadina and Queens Quay where there are also pike.

The took out a lot of the weedbeds at haurfront. Supposedly to make it easier for the polic boats to get through. This kind of killed a lot of the pike habitat down there.

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • Shore fishing Lake Erie (Wheatley area)

      Hi there, Has anyone here ever tried fishing from shore on Lake Erie near Wheatley? My family rented a cottage right on the lake and I was hoping to do some fishing after my little one goes to bed. I’ve fished from shore before on big water on Lake Abitibi and had some success using just a pickerel rig. Would that be the ticket here or is there anything better to use? Am I just wasting my time?   thanks!

    • Perth area camping and fishing?

      I might have the opportunity to get away in the Perth area for some camping and fishing one weekend late August Any suggestions for on good places to camp and really nice fishing lakes? I’ll be going solo. Prefer camp sites with hydro as I will need to charge my trolling battery.  I’d either be taking my tent trailer and canoe with electric motor or roughing it with a tent and bringing my boat for gas and electric motoring. Both Silver Lake and Sharbot Lake PP’s are all pretty much boo
