Milton area suggestions.....

Recommended Posts

Hiya Gang,

 

I was wunderin' if anyone out there in OFC land can help me out.

I got 5 kids who just recently got the "fishing bug" since bein up at the cottage and are always asking to go fishing now!! (Sure beats bein glued to the TV all summer!!)

 

They live in Milton and I would love to be able to take them somewhere close to do some fishing. Of course they have no problems catching pan fish all day so anywhere nearby would be great.

 

Can anyone suggest where to go?

 

Thanks,

 

Meely :canadian:

Kelso Conservation area is right there, lot's a pan fish, bass and maybe even a trout and when they tire there's a beach for cooling off.

Kelso is a great little area.I fished there quite a bit years ago and landed some really nice smallies.Take a look around the shoreline and about 30 feet offshore there is a sunken foundation from an old building.Lots of fish hanging around.

As mentioned Kelso would work. Also Mountsberg is not too far of a drive, and there are some shore options there.

 

 

Kelso is good as near by. There are a few ponds not to far away on a senic route as well. But as meantioned mountsberg is a good option and not to far away. I hear there are some good size bass therewhistling.gif Go to team 1 2010 OFC entrywhistling.gifbiggrin.gif

Mill Pond right down town. Main St at Martin St. Not sure what all is in there but it does get stocked with trout.

 

I use to take our son there when he was 2 to 3 years old.. but that was 25 years ago..

Kelso I initially thought didn't hold much fish. But recently we caught onto LMB and perch and pumkinseed. Also got a strike from some bright red fish which we never hooked.

Another spot also held some decent size bass, approx 14".

There doesn't seem to be any current listing of recent stocking efforts, but now am interested to see where the SMB are. weekend trip in order...

Burns Pond Conservation Area off Guelph Line in Moffatt is a place where

sunfish-LMB-Crappie-KOI? can be caught. There is no car entry fee with alot of green space/

picnic tables and a walking trail.

It can be weedy but the panfish are there & if you need worms there is a

house close by that sells bait.....

      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.

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

      Just going to throw this out there and maybe get some pointers. I have owned this truck for 3 years. Had the oil pressure warning go off at idle the first summer I owned it. I changed out the oil pressure sensor and changed the oil. It solved the problem to some degree. That warning would go off again at around 5000 km after the oil change.  I would change the oil and again solve the problem of the warning sound going off, the pressure seemed to read low at idle still, but no sound.

    • 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!
