McCarthy lake in Stratford

Recommended Posts

Hi all. My wife, daughter, and I will be staying at a little hotel on McCarthy lake in Stratford next weekend. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the lake, and whether it will be worth me bringing some gear for us to fish from shore with... Thanks in advance!

That's all I've found too. I was hoping there might be a few on here who might have fished it a few times. Worst case, I bring some soft plastics and hope for the best.

Thanks!

Hey Adam, good luck exploring.  I wouldn't go by anything you find on Hook and Bullet, though.  I dunno where those reports come from but the species are usually waaaaaaaaay off.

"McCarthy lake in Stratford "? Stratford Ontario? I use to live in Stratford (and now live about 1/2 hr away) and never have heard of it.

What place are you staying?

It's more of a pond..maybe 300m in length. It's just east of town off Forest Road. My guess is Forest Motel for the win! lol

grimsbylander that was also my guees.

Not a serious fishing place. Years back it did get a few trout stocked but no idea how recent. My guess is a few panfish.

Yup, Forest Motel is right. Just a couple of little bluegill were biting, and I'm not sure if there are any bass in there. It's just about choked with vegetation.

      Hi there! Looks like a great year for walleye fishing and Erie is one of the best places to go for them . Been lately on a few occasions my buddies and we limit by noon every single time . It didn't matter if it was wavy or still, trolling was the ticket. We had several double header, even a few triple headers... Cheers! Gino

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done.

Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri

    • 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
