Hello Italo, hope you are holding up well during these crazy times. I would like to try going for channel catfish this spring, its one of the few species ive yet to catch. Can you suggest a spot and time of year i can try? I live in ajax, are there any rivers nearby that get a run. Im curious what rivers in southern ontario get a run of channel cats. Thanks Italo.Posted on March 30th, 2020
Hi Jack, I’m doing well, thank you. Hope you and your family are doing well also. One of the best spots to catch Channel Catfish right now is the Grand River, Dunnville, ON. The best location there is Fishmasters Marina where you can park and fish from shore. They may even have fresh baitfish chunks there that you can purchase. I do not know of any really good Channel Catfish areas near you. The other good spot is in the Trent River, Trenton, ON fishing right off the #1 Dam up from Lake Ontario.
