Knowing where to fish and where an angler can legally access is one of the largest hurdles to get someone on the water, it is also the most asked question and most covered topic in our shop.
Below you will find a list of rivers that flow in Southern Ontario, and where you can find publicly accessible water and angling opportunities. We also have a rating system on how publicly accessible the waterway is, please keep this in mind
while you start exploring.
It is important to note that not all rivers, streams, creeks and other water bodies, have public access. If there is public access it may not be for the entire river. Please note that parts of the waterway may be privately owned and at times it may includes the riverbed.
This is your starting point, do your research,
