Topic Regarding Salmon/Trout Run in Bronte Creek

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

 

As time gets closer and closer - its making me wish I could do some river fishin'! (and not just dinky lil' guys)

 

Anyway, my question is to those who has tried fishing Bronte Creek (in Burlington) for Trout/Salmon...

Just wondering if the fish are known to run up there?

 

Thanks!

RoB

 

PS: I'd like to know of your fav. places (PM me).

Fish do run up there and sorry I can't and will not tell you my favourite places... You can work the river anywhere from the mouth of bronte all the way up Petro Canada Park. If you like to walk keep going north till you're tired you can find a few spots with some small pools. Generally speaking this creek is really shallow. Time the rain and should find fish anywhere. It's all site fishing!

 

Keep in mind of the regs as well for closing dates of particular stretches.

 

Honestly, you are better off at the credit with more flow.

Learn to fish the gun metal freight trains off the piers at night instead of the dark mud sharks up little creeks.

 

North winds, cold water, glow spoons.............

 

 

Oh and Solo, opportunities, plural. Credit has an even better estuary to fish, with it too small & shallow to really run boats up it pretty much stays untapped.

 

Oh crap, where's the edit button!!!!!.............

I bet you would, but I doubt anyone's willing to give them away. It's one thing to ask for help but to not even be polite about asking for such info seems kinda rude...

believe it or not, people caught fish before the internet

 

they typically put in some leg work; had their share of successes and failures but eventually, found their own little holes

 

try it sometime.

NO, absolutely not. You cannot fish in a sanctuary at all.

If you fish Petro Park be prepared for the most disgusting display of sportmanship you've ever seen.

 

The stench when the run is on will have you looking for something to cut the smell a bit.

Was there yesterday, its very very shallow. Still no stench tho and not too many dead fish laying around which probably tells you that there was no major run just quite yet.
