East of Toronto near the village of Newcastle, the Wilmot Creek is popular with fly fishermen for salmon and steelhead. The Wilmot Creek is a very healthy trout fishery. Voluntary catch-and-release of trout is encouraged.
Here is information on access for Wilmot Creek. The season is open all year in the section of the Wilmot Creek South of the Railroad tracks. Northern sections are all mostly posted except for a quarter mile section called the Thurn Park Conservation Area. This small area has a parking lot and allows fishing on both sides of the stream within the season. Following a path along this quarter mile section of the creek is a little rugged. There is one private area run by the Wilmot Club that offers exceptional spring fishing opportunities to its members.
Overall, Wilmot Creek is the 1st most popular fly fishing river of all 5 fly fishing spots in Ontario.
