Venison Creek

Venison Creek is the largest tributary to Big Creek, in the Long Point Region Conservation Area, on the north shore of Lake Erie, in Ontario, Canada.[1][2]

The watershed was originally heavily wooded, until settlers of European descent cleared the land for farming.[1]

Fish generally found in Venison Creek are northern pike, rainbow trout, brook trout, panfish, carp, smallmouth bass and brown trout. Catching a fish in this creek is generally the best between 6 AM and 12 PM and becoming sub-optimal between 6 PM and 6 AM.[3]

After being joined by its most important tributary, Venison Creek, it becomes a large stream, and is in places very deep where the current is held in by high banks. Occasionally it flows through deep gulches and ravines. In Galinee's journal it is mentioned that his party were delayed more than a day in attempting to cross this stream. It was also at the mouth of this creek that the McCall party landed in 179G. The township was surveyed by Sergeant Daniel Hazen in 1797. The chief villages are Port Rowan, St. Williams, Walsingham Centre, Port Royal and Langton.
