Port Credit is widely known as the Salmon Capital of Ontario.
Head to the lake, charter a boat, bring along your favourite lure and enjoy 50 days of fishing excitement on Lake Ontario. Port Credit’s Credit Village Marina is one of eight official weigh stations for the Annual Great Ontario Salmon Derby held in communities along Lake Ontario, all the way from St. Catharines to Wellington. The Great Ontario Salmon Derby is North America’s largest fresh-water fishing derby. Fishermen compete for 10 weekly prizes including cash, tackle, rods and reels and, for the heaviest salmon caught every week—a Toyota® Corolla! The winner of the overall Derby wins an exciting grand prize package including a 2015 Toyota 4RUNNER and a fishing trip for two. The derby attracts both avid and recreational fishermen alike.
