Angling in Ontario – Your Dream Trip Awaits

With over 250,000 lakes in Ontario it’s no wonder this province is home to world class fisheries! Add in over 2,000 lodges, resorts and cottage rentals, you can choose your favourite species and your choice of angling experience, alongside the backdrop of natural beauty, all in Ontario.

The options are simply endless. Whether you want to fish for mighty muskies, walleye, bass, brook trout, salmon, pan fish and the list goes on and on, Ontario has it all. If you want to experience an epic remote fly in experience, where you are the only boat on a lake, or if you want to share a memorable family vacation that you can drive to, enjoy a beach, bonfires, hiking, sunbathing and angling, Ontario has it all and everything else in-between! As an angler, you can find the experience that suits your desires, your budget and your chance to land that fish species you have dreamed of.

Start planning your dream trip by visiting the Destination Ontario booth. Whether you want to stay closer to home or travel to areas of the province like Northern Ontario, Destination Ontario will be happy to provide you answers to any questions you have. We also want to direct you to Ontario lodges and resorts attending The Toronto Sportsmen’s Show who can offer you further travel information on inspiring fishing options. So, whether you are an expert fly angler searching for beautiful brookies, a novice working on honing your angling skills or a parent wishing to create angling memories with your kids, Ontario is the only destination you should consider.

Additionally, the Destination Ontario booth is featuring daily television personalities that you can interact with to hear directly about fishing tips, Ontario fishing experiences and ideas on where to visit. Come meet some of the most well-known angling media, from Fish’n Canada, the Extreme Angler, the New Fly Fisher Show and Canada in the Rough.
