The trick to this is fishermen sometimes don't like to share their favourite fishing locations. Which is sad, because our chosen prey for bowfishing is CARP - an invasive species the Ontario government wants killed off.
Which means bowfishers should really be sharing this information so that we can help each other to eradicate carp. Below is a list of locations I recommend checking out:
- Sixteen Mile Creek, near Oakville.
- Guelph Lake Conservation Area, near Guelph. Especially near the dam bridge.
- Conestogo Lake Conservation Area, near Dorking. Below the dam.
- Listowel, river in the park east of the hospital.
- Ayr, Ninth River.
