The Wilmot Creek is located near the Village of Newcastle about 45 minutes East of Toronto. It is a beautiful creek which has both private and public sections. Some conservation work has resulted in shaded covered banks and deep pools. These areas hold the migrating, spawning fish up in the northern sections of the creek for longer periods than in the usual open creeks that lack vegetation on the stream banks. Record size Steelhead and Brown trout are often taken in the Spring runs. Atlantic and Chinook Salmon are spectacular in the Fall.
Creek Access Points:
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. Sections of the Wilmot have been featured in Canadian Sportsfishing and the Natural Angler TV shows about early Spring Steelhead fishing.
