I will never go fishing there because the water is toxic. Think you'd eat the crappie from the river? Better think twice.

LAKE SIMCOE REGION CONSERVATION AUTHORITY released a report in 2000 which covered a lot of information about their study on East Holland River Subwatershed. The report revealed that:

"Over all, the water quality of the East Holland River is poor with 12 of the 18 parameters examined exceeding their Provincial Water Quality Objectives (PWQOs) . The six parameters discussed above are found in concentrations high enough to seriously impact the aquatic ecosystem and reduce the recreational opportunities of the river."

Yes, that was a report from 18 years ago. Have the results been improved since then? I personally don't think so.

Regardless of how polluted the water is people are still going to be catching and consuming fish from that area. Even if the government decided to fence off the entire area due to toxic water people will still find a way over the fence to fish

I personally wouldn't keep fishes from there but that wouldn't stop me from fishing that area trying to catch that 2lbs plus monster

Almost everywhere the water quality has improved over the last 18 years, environmental laws are tougher than ever.

It was my understanding that the crappie only come into the river to spawn and they live most of their lives in the main lake, so not the worst.

Hey kingphoenix,

I was going to say the exact same thing regarding both points but figured why bother. People believe what they want to believe. If you are catching and eating fishing out of Cooks there is a good chance that at some point that same fish lived or spent time in the river.
