Ontario: Canada's Treasure Chest

When it comes to a Canadian adventure, Ontario offers amazing variety and trophy fishing!

If I could only fish one province of Canada for the rest of my life…I’d have to choose Ontario. For starters, it has hands down some of the best Smallmouth Bass and Muskie fishing in Canada, and arguably, some of the best in the world! The Walleye fishing is amazing here in the sheer numbers of fish, especially in Northwest Ontario, a place that is commonly refered to by fishulo staff as a "Walleye factory".

For Northern Pike, Ontario probably doesn’t offer the trophy opportunities of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories, but it does offer some of the best drive-in pike fishing found anywhere. At many of Ontario's fly-in lakes in the far north, however, world-class Pike fishing does exist. This is especially true if you time your trip for the early and late season trophies. During this time of the year, catching trophy-class pike is a possibility on almost any of Ontario's thriving fisheries.
In addition to Ontario's Walleye and Pike fishing, the rivers feeding into Hudson’s Bay offer unbelievable Brook Trout fishing as well. Here the fish are measured in POUNDS, not inches. These trips are still done the old fashioned way, by hiring a pilot to fly you, your camping equipment and a canoe into the wilderness. Those with the courage to take on such an adventure will be rewarded with a fishing experience unmatched anywhere else on earth.


If your passion is Lake Trout or Smallmouth fishing, Ontario is for you as well! The many cold, deep lakes within the province's bounders offer exceptional opportunites for both. Trust me when I tell you that this could certainly be where you find the next trophy to hang on your wall!


I’m glad I don’t have to choose a single province to fish for the rest of my life because Canada offers world-class fishing opportunities from end-to-end, and from top-to-bottom.
