Fly Fishing the Credit River

     Some of the best fly fishing water in Southern Ontario can be found in the Upper Credit River. This stream trout fishery extends from north of the town of Inglewood all the way up the west branch of the Credit past Erin, and up the East (Main) branch to Orangeville and Island Lake. In this portion of the river can be found brook, brown, and rainbow trout. There are all types of water to fish, from the cascading whitewater of the cataract to the slow meandering meadow pools in Forks of the Credit Provincial park and the boggy swamp water north of Caledon. The fish in this river are some of the best fighting and most beautiful stream trout to be found in Southern Ontario. There is no and has not been any stocking of browns and rainbows for decades, so the fish are “wild” in the best sense of the word.

     There is suitable water for all techniques on the upper Credit, with most notably anglers fishing with nymphs, dries, and streamers. What method works best really depends on the water conditions, but more importantly what the fish want.

FISH'N THE CREDIT

The Credit River, starts as cold fast running brooks up in Inglewood, Orangeville, and the Forks of the Credit, and meanders through the town of Mississauga as a prime steelie and salmon river until it empties into L. Ontario at Port Credit. The river is famous for its many deep pools, shallow rapids, and boulder strewn flats.
