Ontario has more freshwater than the rest of the world combined, and Northeastern Ontario lets you access the pristine backcountry lakes and rivers like no other place in the province. Follow in the footsteps of the great mapmaker, Samuel de Champlain, as you travel along the same waterways that let the first explorers open up this great country. Venture down our lakes, rivers and streams in search of the next big catch. Hop on a snowmobile to experience ice fishing on a secluded lake. Group up with some friends at a lodge for an all-in-one fishing experience. Get off the river and try your luck at one of the many lakes.
Northeastern Ontario is famous for so many species of fish, but the ones that stand out head and tail above the rest are giant Northern Pike. Generally open year round (always check your zone regulations), the pike season is at it’s finest during last ice.
In this video Gord Pyzer shows you how to use dead bait and quick strike rigs to catch those giants and show up your friends.
