Northern Ontario: Canada's Premier Fishing Destination

Northern Ontario is Canada's premier fishing destination. The region has a large variety of freshwater fish that will challenge the skills of the pro or the novice. This is the place where the big fish lurk and there are many trophies waiting to be caught.

Unchallenged as table fare, walleye is the most popular and most angled fish in Northern Ontario. Northern Ontario offers the best walleye fishing anywhere in North America. Vertical jigging (1/8 oz to 3/8 oz chartreuse or hot pink jigs are local favourites) and minnows, leeches or nightcrawlers are your best bet. Northern Ontario walleye also like a variety of minnow plugs and crankbaits -the time of year and weather conditions generally dictate what presentation works the best. In general, sunrise and sunset are the best times of day to go after this fish.

Labeled a "walleye wonderland" by the Outdoor News' Northern Ontario Outdoor Guide, Northern Ontario is the place to be for walleye anglers. The Ontario record is 22.25 pounds with the best eating size in the 1.5 to 3 pound range. Walleye define the Canadian shore lunch experience - something you won't want to miss.

Pound for pound, smallmouth bass are the feistiest fish in Northern Ontario. Found mostly in the southern half of the region, smallmouth bass will bite a number of presentations and the use of ultra light tackle makes landing them that much more exciting. Casting with spinner baits or using topwater lures along rocky shoals and on the edge of weed beds are a pretty good bet if you're seeking smallmouth. Bouncing jigs along the lake bottom with minnows or nightcrawlers also works. Most smallmouth average 8 to 15 inches in length and weigh between 1.5 to 3 pounds. The larger fish can range between 4 and 6 pounds.

Referred to as "gators" by residents of the region, Northern Pike are the most aggressive predatory fish that inhabit our waters. Averaging between 8 to 12 pounds, northerns offer, an exciting experience for any angler. The larger pike, in Northern Ontario, can exceed 40 inches and weigh 30 lbs or more. Just about any presentation works on this fish. Jerkbaits, spoons, spinners and crankbaits all work well. While found just about anywhere, pikes tend to prefer protected bays with lots of weeds where, hidden in cover, they can stalk their unsuspecting prey.

The most prized trophy fish of them all is the muskellunge and Northern Ontario is known as one of the best places in North America to catch a huge muskie.Some of the better known muskie lakes in the region include Lac Seul, Pipestone Lake, Eagle Lake, Rough Rock Lake, Sand Lake, Lake of the Woods, Dryberry Lake and Rowan Lake and parts of the English River System - although this is certainly not an a1l-inclusive list.

Noisy surface baits, bucktails and very large trolling plugs are all effective for muskie. It is a certainty that the lakes of Northern Ontario hold record-sized fish - and it's a definite possibility that a world-record muskie lurks somewhere in our waters. While the current Ontario record is 65 pounds, fish in the range of 40 to 45 Ibs are caught on a regular basis every year.

Jumbo Perch and Crappie With abundant populations of crappie and yellow perch, Northern Ontario is the perfect place to teach your kid to fish. A cast off just about any dock will yield you a perch and the thrill in your child's eyes as he or she reels in that first fish will be a memory to cherish for a lifetime. For the serious pan fish angler, you'll find both crappie and perch along deep weedlines in the summer months and in shallow bays in the spring. Morning and evening tend to be the best times to catch these fish. Good bait options include small minnows, mini-crankbaits and spinner baits.

Fantastic Hunting Opportunities
Northwest Ontario offers the hunter some great opportunities. If its big game you're after there is black bear, deer, wolf and moose to challenge your skills. Northern Ontario is known across North America for having some of the biggest moose anywhere - the opportunity is here for you to take home that prized trophy. There are also high populations of black bear and deer, meaning you are almost guaranteed success. Our experienced outfitters know where the big game is and have everything you need for a successful hunt.

Northern Ontario also offers great waterfowl hunting opportunities: mallards, wood ducks, blue bills, teals and geese. Several other species of ducks also migrate through the region in the autumn. There are also good hunting opportu- nities for ruffed grouse. With thousands of lakes to choose from, Northern Ontario is a veritable duck paradise - ensuring that you'll achieve success during your hunt.

As you look overhead you can usually see one of hundreds of bald eagles which live here. There are over one hundred different species of migratory birds and waterfowl in the region during the spring, summer and fall months - a bird watcher's paradise. Birds such as the great blue heron, white pelican, common loon and dozens of species of songbirds nest here. Your camera is a must!

Northwest Ontario is home to some of Canada's largest populations of moose, deer and black bear. For those who seek the experience of seeing one of these majestic animals close-up, there are over 60,000 square miles of forested lands in which to find them.
