Things To Do :: Fishing
Brockton is making a name for itself as one of the greatest fishing destinations in the world!
Home to both the Saugeen and Teeswater Rivers, Brockton offers first-class fly fishing, and anglers will find the feeder streams and spring-fed lakes offer an abundance of brown trout, bass, and pike.
Most game species can be caught in the Saugeen River; the river is easy to access featuring a variety of trails, boat launches and access points.

Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Salmon
There is an extended season for brown trout, rainbow trout and salmon in the Town of Walkerton between Truax Dam and the westerly edge of the concrete abutments downstream of Denny's Dam, north of Southampton.
The Saugeen musky is unique to the river, being a hybrid of Kawartha & Huron breeds, a result of re-population efforts.
If you are interested in helping to maintain the health of the Saugeen River either in an advisory role or by pitching in with some hands-on volunteer projects, please consider joining the Friends of the Saugeen!
