An angler's guide to fishing in Long Point Region Conservation Areas
The many streams, ponds and reservoirs located throughout the Long Point Region watershed provide excellent fishing opportunities. Visitors to LPRCA conservation areas can help to conserve our fisheries resources through "catch and release". Simply put, you safely release the fish you catch back into the water. This way, you have all the fun of fishing, while helping to conserve our region's valuable fish population.
Whether you are looking for quiet solitude, a great camping spot or information on our natural world, you can find it in a conservation area.
Special events and interpretive programs are held throughout the year at Backus Heritage.
It is important to note that private property exists along watercourses within the watershed. Remember not to park illegally or to trepass onto private property. It's an angler's ethical responsibility to respect private property.
In order that others may continue to enjoy these areas please observe the following; be familiar with and obey all fishing regulations and conservation area rules. Please don't litter or leave fish remains. Return all unwanted fish to the water alive and unharmed.
