Sport Fishing

Bring your fishing rod when visiting Welland to meet some new friends at one of our canal fishing docks. Welland has always been a fishing hot-spot for locals and a quiet place to catch perch and catfish. The city places several docks on the water from spring to summer for people to enjoy the view or see what they can catch. The Province of Ontario requires most people to possess a valid fishing licence. You must have this licence with you at all times when fishing.
