New Traffic Lights

The City has put traffic lights in by the launch ramp. This section of road can be a gong show, with lots of jaywalking. The lights should make it easier to get in and out with a trailer. The salmon crosswalk is a nice touch.

About the Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association

The Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association (PCSTA) was formed in early 2010 to organize local interest in helping to rebuild Lake Ontario’s historic salmon and trout populations after a decade of noticeable decline. Lake Ontario has always been home to varieties of these treasured fish and Port Credit was once home to a lively commercial fishing industry. Today, the fishery is recreational, with pacific salmon and rainbow trout being the most sought after fish, followed by brown trout, another introduced species. An effort to reintroduce native Atlantic salmon to Lake Ontario has been underway for many years. Lake Ontario’s $180 million Chinook salmon industry is particularly important to the village, which prides itself as the Salmon Capital of Ontario. Port Credit is home-base for the province’s largest salmon derby and a sizable fleet of salmon fishing boats and charter operations.

Upcoming Events

The PCSTA Family

The PCSTA is run by local volunteers and supportive donors. PCSTA volunteers and members are a diverse group composed of: environmentalists, anglers, boaters, business owners, active community members and others. The group often reaches out to the greater community to encourage public participation. Many people have participated or stopped by a PCSTA event at the waterfront. These are great opportunities to learn more about the amazing resources we have right here in our own backyard.
