Visit Ontario for Fishing & Kayaking

Lakes & Water Trails for Aquatic Adventure

Fishing in Ontario
Find your inner fisherman – which won’t be hard for many of you – and head to one of Ontario's 400,000 lakes, rivers and creeks. Throughout the year, fishermen are in for a treat.

Anglers are advised to drop a line in the fall, while ice fishing enthusiasts find haven in Ontario during the beautiful winter months.

In northwest Ontario, fly-in fishing has made a name for itself. Settle along the Nipigon River for brook trout, or the Albany River for walleye and relaxation.

For pike, muskie and small mouth bass, set up shop near Eagle Lake, or end your day with the sunset and your new catch at Wabigoon Lake. Whether staying in Dryden, Kenora or Thunder Bay, your time spent sport fishing in Ontario is sure to be a memorable one.

Canoes & Kayaks
Did we mention Ontario has over 400,000 lakes and waterways? This means canoe and kayaks adventures will not be hard to come by. Set in southeastern Ontario, visitors Peterborough are granted with amazing access to the nearby water trails of the Kawartha region.

Feel yourself gliding along the Eels Creek Paddling Route – seven kilometers of scenic waterway ideal for your canoe or kayak. Other stunning water trails include the four-kilometer Ennismore Heritage Trail, five-kilometer Indian River Paddling Route, and the quick three-kilometer Keene Paddling Route. Soak up some outdoor Ontario.

Wabigoon Lake

Named after the Ojibwe word for “white feather,” Wabigoon Lake is located in the community of Dryden. Make travel plans for the western part of northern Ontario and check out this premier lake. With an area of 26,000 acres and 114 miles of shoreline, the lake is a very popular fishing and boating destination.

The Wabigoon River serves as the primary inflow and outflow for the lake, which provides a wealth of game fish species to fishermen. Common Wabigoon Lake catches include Walleye, Muskie, Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Perch and Crappie.
