Getting Things Back to Normal (For Now) Along The Ganaraska River in Port Hope

In Editor Choice, Local, Photo Gallery

The Ganaraska River is back open and in business for anglers starting on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

Shortly after 6 a.m. town staff were removing approximately 10,000 feet of rope, fence and barricades from parks and along the river.

But even before the fencing was removed, anglers were casting in the Ganaraska River.

Also before the fence was removed, even though signs are clearly posted along Cavan Street stating otherwise, people were parking on the grass.

Council’s decision to close the parks thereby preventing anglers from fishing prevented an onslaught of people coming to Port Hope.

Port Hope Police stated due to the Provincial State of Emergency until June 2, anglers can access the river to fish, but there is no fishing allowed along the banks.

But not only fish, a beaver and a family of geese were in the river.

And also just so anglers know – Conservation Officers from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry were also patrolling the river.
