Duffin’s Creek Marsh

About fishing at Duffins Creek

Duffin’s Creek is one of the best locations for fishing for trout. Duffin’s Creek River offers some of the best seasonal fishing. Brown troutsalmonrainbow trout, and white bass can all be caught during certain times of the year. The majority of anglers upstream are searching for trophy rainbow trout. Great trout fishing picks up in February once the ice melts and stays pretty active until late May to early June when they return to Lake Ontario. Anglers do best when targeting trout by fly fishing. They are also successful in using small minnow baits and spoons.

About fishing at Duffin’s Creek Marsh

Located in Ajax, Duffin’s Creek Marsh offers excellent angling action and has some of the best fishing near Toronto. There are four pools of water at Duffin’s Creek. Three are muggy, and it is difficult to see the bottom, even though they are very shallow. The other, which is on the northwest side, is a different ecosystem and has different types of fish within it. Parking at this location is difficult as there are only three designated parking spots at the bottom of Frisco Road. Most people park their cars on the side of the dirt road, which is a park at your own risk. The park is accessible via transit but a long walk to the marsh area itself will be required. There are no public washrooms accessible at the park. Duffin’s Creek Marsh is along the waterfront trail, so anglers can walk, bike, or rollerblade along the trail to get to the marsh.
