Current River

Fishermans Park

The Millenial Project is still onging, however, the City of Thunder Bay has no plans to develop this area in the near future. Currently the City is working on extending the trial system between Cumberland Street and Shipyard Drive, which will bring users of the trail system to the extrance to Fisherman's Road, and the exact location the NSSA wishes to develop into a park. The goal of the NSSA is to reclaim this abused area, and return it to a natural setting, while offering a view of the lower Current River and the wildlife which abounds, as well as a place which the citizens of our city will want to visit.


The Current River is a large flow in the heart of the City of Thunder Bay. The system is used by thousands of residents for swimming, walking and skiing trails, fishing for resident trout and general sightseeing. Due to a barrier dam at Boulevard Lake, the system lacked one major treasure - the opportunity to fish for large, migratory Rainbow Trout. NSSA is hoping to change this. Rehabilitation of the Current River as an accessible and vibrant urban fishery is a long term goal and project of the NSSA.

Migration Corridor Improvement

As of August 17, 2010 the NSSA has received all the necessary approvals to proceed with modifications to the river bed in the Current River. This small project will improve migration corridors during low water flows. The work will entail the removal of a small amount of rock on the cliff which will allow migrating fish another route to follow when ascending this partial barrier.
