New to Fishing? Want to Learn?

If this is your first season fishing, you may be hesitant to plan a fishing trip somewhere new, but Northeastern Ontario is a wonderful place to learn and we’ve been working with lodges and camps across the region to make the transition as easy as possible. You won’t regret making the trip when your skills, and catches, advance quickly.

Experience Fishing is a Northern program that helps new anglers find lodges that offer gear and guidance for beginners. If you’re interested in learning about a specific species or you’d like to get lures, rods, and other equipment to help target some of our species, Experience Fishing lodges offer packages to suit all levels.

What species are you after?

FIND YOUR FISH IN NORTHEASTERN ONTARIO

Our borders start on the rocky shorelines of Lake Huron. Follow the coast to the tributaries of the Great Lakes, or head north into the tens of thousands rivers and lakes in Northeastern Ontario.

Lakes here range from mesotrophic to oligotrophic. The mesotrophic lakes offer lots of fun opportunities to fish natural structures for warm water species such as bass, walleye, muskie, and pike. And our oligotrophic lakes have deep, crystal clear waters perfect for all types of trout.

Some lakes have the best of both worlds and while you’re here you’ll have the opportunity to catch both natural and stocked lake and brook trout.
