Hello Italo. I hope you and your family are well. I live in Toronto and just bought a new fishing kayak. what are some good areas in the Toronto area to fish with a kayak. I like fishing for bass walleye and salmon.

Hi Chris…We are well, thank you. Good areas to fish right now with your Kayak for bass are all the lower stretches of the GTA tributaries like the Rouge River, Credit River, Don River, Humber River, Sixteen-Mile Creek, Credit River and Bronte Creek. Smallmouth and some pike are in all the lower sections of these tributaries. Best lures to use for them are the Jointed #7 Rapala, the Rapala Dives To Thug crankbait, Vibrax #3 spinner, 4″ tube-1/8 oz. tube jighead, 1/4 oz. spinnerbaait. Some Chinook salmon are already “staging” in the same river/creek harbor mouths and you can easily fish them close to the harbor mouth by either trolling or casting for them. Good lures for the salmon are casting spoons in the 3/8 oz. size, the Jointed Rapala #13 in fluorescent orange and chartreuse, a Vibrax #4 spinner and the Luhr Jensen Kwikfish. For walleye, you will have to travel outside of Toronto. I can recommend Lake Scugog which has an excellent late summer, fall, shallow-water walleye fishery within 500 yds. of the Hwy.#7A causeway in Port Perry, ON. As the water temperature drops walleye will be caught as shallow as 2′ of water as the sun goes down. Best presentation is to cast either a Jointed Rapala #11 or a Rapala Husky Jerk #11, both fished just below the surface….God bless you, Italo
