The Town of Whitby is seeking community feedback as it explores new rules and regulations for fishing along Whitby’s waterfront.

At Council direction, Town staff are exploring fishing regulations for Whitby and considering whether or not to amend the existing Parks By-law to allow fishing in select locations in the Town. Staff is interested in residents' overall interest in fishing, where fishing currently takes place, community concerns associated with fishing, and how to make fishing as safe as possible.
