For those of you that are looking to take up a new hobby this summer, fishing might be just what you are looking for. Not only is this a great sport that the entire family can enjoy, but it also allows you to escape from the hustle and bustle of every-day life. Additional benefits include the following: social bonding, stress relief, conservation contribution, self-fulfillment and a thrill (from the chase).
Local residents might be surprised to hear that some of the best fly fishing water in Southern Ontario can be found in the Upper Credit River….that’s correct, right here at home! The Credit River runs through the heart of southern Ontario; it starts up in Inglewood, Orangeville (the Forks of the Credit), meanders through the town of Mississauga and then empties into Lake Ontario at Port Credit. The river is famous for many deep pools, shallow rapids, and boulder strewn flats. The fish in this area are also some of the best and most beautiful to be found in Southern Ontario.
There is suitable water for all fishing techniques in the Upper Credit River, including fly fishing opportunities for resident brown trout and speckled trout. The Credit also boasts large runs of chinook salmon, steelhead as well as some coho salmon, and Atlantic salmon.
