Hi, I'm new to London, and I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction. Where are the 'good' fishing spots? What bait, techniques, lures do people who fish the river regularly find that works for the small mouth bass, walleye, etc ? Has anyone tried using boilies for the carp? Thanks, I'm a complete newbie to fishing in London, and fishing for North American fish species.

I used to live downtown and fish along the river near Harris part mostly. There are several species including pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, white bass, catfish and carp. I've caught most of them on #3 and #4 Mepps spinner baits (various colours, although glow worked best)
I caught all my carp on corn, but boilies and bread will work for sure.
Here are a few reports I made while living there:
While I was there the water was quite low and I could see plenty of carp cruising.

Thanks Clive! Harris park is near the forks of the Thames right? How crowded does it get with people fishing during the summer months, I think I'll take a trip down tomorrow with some corn and a few small spoons and spinners and see what I catch.

Yup, thats right were the river forks. I was often the only one fishing!
You'll see the odd carp guy, but no one seems to realize that there are plenty of other fish to catch right there.
I used to live a 2 minute walk a way, so I would fish most evenings after work and rarely went home without a fish being caught.
