Fly Fishing



If you’re a fly angler, or angling to become one, you’ll appreciate Northeastern Ontario’s region’s sheltered lakes and rivers where you can escape wind and waves amongst picturesque islands.

Most species in our region can be caught on a fly rod; bass, walleye, pike, and muskie all enjoy streams of various sizes.

In the early spring, when the fly fishing season opens, is a great time to visit a lodge and a lake to yourself.

What species are you after?


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.

Resources and Regulations


Before heading anywhere new, every good angler should check the region’s rules and regulations. It’s important to respect the seasonality of species to make sure you have the best vacation possible.

You also need to make sure you have the proper fishing license for the type of fishing you’re doing.
