Tommy Thompson Park

About fishing at Tommy Thompson Park

Located at the bottom of Leslie, it provides excellent fishing opportunities in the many small bodies of water around the park that attract many different types of fish. The park is accessible by public transit but is a long walk into the park. Tommy Thompson Park has public washrooms. Note that no live bait is allowed to be used for fishing. This is to help limit the risk of introducing invasive species into the ecosystem. The Round Goby is already in the ecosystem. If caught, it is mandatory by law that you do not release it back into the water as it eats the fish eggs of the species and reduces the population.

The many different enclosed areas provide great fishing year-round. Tommy Thompson Park is one of the few parks in Toronto where lake trout have been recorded as being caught from the shore. Tommy Thompson Park is one of the best fishing locations near the downtown core. The park stretches out a few hundred meters which is why it attracts a variety of fish who prefer both cooler and warmer water temperatures.
