Just got back in from Port D. Parking lot is closed off and the break wall is Gated from lighthouse rd. The waterfront trail is closed off from Michigan ave and has no trespassing signs. Only access is to fish Port Dalhousie is from Port side to the green bridge and also the parking lot next to the new condos. I’m hearing that construction is going to last 2 months , and they are placing structures in the water so who knows what fishing will look like after this. Also the 2 month timeline is from the same city that told us the restructuring of the piers would be completed last year. I guess it doesn’t matter since there are no fish in Port Dalhousie anyways ...... 🙄

They’ve started dumping rocks along the concrete walls for support.  I just wish they started the construction all throughout the summer instead of doing it during the fall.

The locals who fish there must be so pissed.

There have been aborted efforts to stop fishing at the Whirlpool and Glen this year as well. The oldtimers tell me that the west side of Port D will eventually be reconstructed...as covered parking for the East Side condos since they can't put underground parking beneath the condos for some reason We shall see. My bet more territory for dog walking, latte drinking, P3TA Yuppie promenading etc. Get rid of those old dirty fisherman who hurt innocent animals (fish),

We will know it's all over when Homestead Doughnuts turns into a Starbucks and LuLu Lemon replaces Peter's Bait and Tackle. It's then time to move to Sault St Marie and fish the St Marys.

A similar thing happened at the Beaver rivermouth in Thornbury. Blocked parking and more trails for dog walking condo owners. That town used to profit from fishermen, now they are not welcome.

I was in Thornbury Thursday last and Tuesday last . There's still lots of fishing, I myself got two nice rainbows, one from shore at the mouth and one from my toon in the lake by the first green can . The whole place is very toney now though. There's dueling bespoke  coffee shops on the main drag not Starbucks but fancy wannbees and Porches, Bimmers and Benzes galore. Lots of walking around, taking in the sights by geezers and their mutts. No bait shop at  Pennys, but my only real complaint was that the fancy coffee shop I chose had an elaborate plan to get a coffee under social distancing protocol,. Actually getting the coffee in hand was a 2 step process that took forever and in the end the fancy coffee was crappy.  One of the locals did have a complaint that after Dec 31 the rules for fishing the mouth of the Beaver have changed and essentially you would have to wade into the lake to legally fish. Water levels at this point would make that a life threatening adventure As always the biggest complaint was that overall the fishing is slow at Thornbury and even slower at Meaford. I did not get any reports about the Saugeen or Notty.

The 'Geen is a shitshow.   If you want shoulder to shoulder fishing go there.  Still not cold enough for me to make the trip.

True dat
