World Class 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 and the river is easy to access featuring a variety of trails, boat launches and access points.

Learn more about the region's fishing opportunities, including information about licences and events via Explore the Bruce and the Walkerton BIA.
