The Ganaraska River

The majestic Ganaraska River offers some

of the best trout and salmon fishing in the

province and draws anglers from great

distances to fish the “Ganny.” The spectacular

trout run in the spring offers excellent

steelhead trout fishing and in the fall salmon

achieve sizes of 30 to 40 pounds!

In the fall, between late August and early

October, watch the chinook and silvery coho

salmon migration! Mixed in with the fall run,

you may also see migratory brown trout in their

vibrant spawning colours.

ZERO tolerance

for illegal

fishing

Fish Ladder Park

Corbett’s Dam (known locally as the Port Hope fish

ladder) is the best place to view fish as they leap

their way up the ladder to the spawning grounds in

the north. This fish sanctuary has a no fishing rule.

To find the fish ladder, follow these GPS coordinates:

43o58’10.7”N78o17’44.5”W.

New this year, Ministry of Natural Resources is

installing a live fish camera! Watch for details on

how you can view the fishway. A strategic priority

of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture

includes further trail development and the creation

of a passive park area. In 2016 a parking lot was

added and the start of a trail connection to the

Ganaraska Hiking Trial.

Check out

our fish

sanctuary

Alex Carruthers Park

Parks and Trail Upgrades

As a Community Strategic Plan priority, the

Department is establishing areas of focus for

parks and trail upgrades, specifically around

the Ganaraska River. Trail upgrades will

include some paving, lighting and outdoor

fitness equipment as part of the Canada 150

Infrastructure Grant. Park upgrades include a

new interactive park at Riverside Park (across

from Ruth Clarke Activity Centre) which is

funded through the New Horizons for Seniors

grant.

Parks and trails

Port Hope trails

Port Hope offers both rural and urban trails for walking, cycling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

✓ New Upcoming program for 2017 Naming of Trails program! Watch for details and updates to trail signage

and wayfinding along the Ganaraska River (Phase 1 of this project).

✓ The Port Hope section of the Waterfront Trail connects Clarington to the west and Hamilton Township

through Cobourg to the east. The urban section of the waterfront trail on the east side of the Ganaraska River

with spectacular views of Lake Ontario features the dedicated handiwork of volunteers that made this trail

possible including benches, bird feeders, a gazebo, boardwalk and viewing area. This section also tributes the

community leaders who played a key role in the trails development – The Keith Richan Walkway, Peter Huffman

Trail and the A.K. Sculthorpe Memorial Woodland Marsh. The Waterfront Trail is also a natural waystation for

monarch butterflies and provides the resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations

and sustain their migration. UPDATE: The Port Hope Waterfront Trail experienced extensive damage with

record high water levels in Lake Ontario in 2017. Some sections of the trail remain closed. Repairs will

be completed when water levels recede within the normal range. Residents and Visitors are asked to be

diligent in obeying postings and notices.

✓ The Ganaraska Trail Pine Ridge section starts at the cairn opposite the Town Hall in Rotary Park beside the

Ganaraska River. With 65 kilometers of varied terrain, this section is easy and novices should have no difficulties.

✓ Try the new Greenbelt Route that was created to make it easier for Ontarians to access the natural beauty of

the Greenbelt. It connects dozens of rural communities, encouraging tourists to cycle to their destinations and

support local economies. Visit their website greenbelt.ca/route.

✓ Geocaching GPS units are available for use at the Town Park Recreation Centre. You and your family can use

one of the units locally or take it on a family vacation. Sign out procedures will be followed but this service is

free! Call 905-885-7908 for more details.

Caroline Street Rink

The rink at Caroline Street has undergone a major update with

funding support through the Government of Canada. New rink

boards and glass have been installed at this rink, as well as

updates to the surrounding park area. The rink is available for

those wishing to play a variety of sports in a neighbourhood

setting. A valued group of volunteers work hard in partnership

with the parks department to maintain this rink as a natural ice

surface in the winter (weather dependent). Ice conditions are

reviewed and the park opening is posted when available. For

more information about ice conditions during the winter, or to

volunteer, please call 905-885-8760.

GARBAGE IN PARKS

Illegal dumping activities have been

problematic throughout the Municipality–

particularly in municipal parks and on trails.

Staff has estimated that between 50 – 75%

of the waste being collected is a result of

residential waste being placed in or beside

parks containers.

In order to attempt to reduce the occurrences

of these activities and to encourage

responsible behaviours in our parks and trails,

a number of strategies are in place. These

action items include the following:

✓ The removal of garbage containers has

been completed on all trails and will be

replaced with strategically located specialized

dog waste containers.

✓ A hotline for reporting illegal dumping

where residents are encouraged to report any

concerns. An incentive will be provided upon

successful issuance of a ticket.

✓ A public awareness campaign, developed

in partnership with the Marketing Department,

“Put Your Trash In Its Place”.

Reporting illegal dumping

Put your trash in its place!

The Municipality of Port

Hope is raising awareness

about irresponsible waste

disposal. We’re reminding the

community of the garbage

and recycling guidelines that

help to keep the Municipality beautiful. Do your

part - help to keep our community clean!

MONTREAL - A Cobourg teen who got her

start at a local dance school recently graced

the stage at Montreal’s Place des Arts in a duction of the Nutcracker.

Emilie Anderson, 15, grew up in Cobourg,

but is now in her second year in the professional

dance program at L’École supérieure,

a Montreal ballet school founded in 1952 by

Ludmilla Chiriaeff. Chiriaeff also founded

the dance company Les Grands Ballets Canadiens,

which annually performs the Nutcracker,

choreographed by Fernand Nault, at

the Place des Arts on the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier

stage. The show was broadcast on CBC

pro-

French television on Jan. 6.

After competitive auditions in September,

Emilie took the role of a Russian doll for the

second year in a row, she said in a telephone

interview from Montreal. Being on stage at

the Les Place des Arts, Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier

stage, with its 2,996 seats, was “exciting”

and a bit “nerve racking,” she said. The Nutcracker

is a major holiday production for the

dance company, with more than 100 dancers

involved.

“It’s really an amazing experience being

Adrienne Surprenant photo/ hanslucas.com

on stage with the company,” she said.

MONTREAL -- Cobourg teen Emilie Anderson danced in the Nutcracker at Montreal’s
