Ontario Canada Fishing – Walleyes, Trout, & Northern
A few of you have asked about a good place to fish in Ontario Canada so I did some research and talked to a couple of my YouTube subscribers from Canada and here is what I have found.
Canada offers some of the best freshwater fishing year-round and has over 400,000 lakes and rivers to choose from. So depending on whether you’re looking for a fishing/vacation trip or a secluded fishing area Ontario has it. You and your family or fishing party can choose from luxury to roughing it as Ontario Canada offers resorts, housekeeping cabins, remote camps, guided trips, fly in trips, pack in trips, or you can even take your own boat/canoe and boat to remote areas. Whichever you decide, make sure to plan your trip (safety, maps, camp, fire, cooking, etc.).
Here are a few tips!
– If you’re the serious fisherman then spend the extra money to do a fly in trip with a hired guide. This will get
you away from the cottages, other fishermen, and the heavier fished areas. You will also find the average catch
will run larger in these secluded areas.
– If looking for a cabin make sure it’s on the water and has an indoor bathroom with a sink.
– If you want to save some money consider cooking some of your own meals.
– If you want to rough it and be secluded then plan your trip and pack a survival kit.
– If hiring a guide ask if this is catch and release with shore lunch only, or you can take a limit home.
– Pack extra food, snacks, and drinks.
– Pack warm cloths and rain gear.
– Have insect repellent for Mosquitoes and the Black Flies.
Ontario Canada Lakes & Rivers – Pasha lake, Totem Resorts, Anderson’s Lodge, Garden Island Lodge, & Algonquin Park
These are the best fishing areas in Ontario Canada that I found through my research and contacts. I have tried to cover the entire region, giving you great fishing spots throughout Ontario. I also know that Ontario has so much great fishing to offer that there are incredible fishing spots that only an Outdoors-man that lives there would know about.
Pasha lake cabins
Pasha Lake Cabins are located near a chain of thirty or more lakes in Northwestern Ontario. Here you will find the Main Lodge, the Office, a Fish Hut, Bait shop, and clean cabins. The fishing in these lakes offer a variety of large and trophy fish; Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Brook Trout (Speckled Trout), Jumbo Perch, and Whitefish.
The surrounding lakes are accessible by boat, driving, or portaging. Lake Pipigon just West, offers large Walleyes, Northern Pike, Brook Trout and Lake Trout, however, the lake is very large so you may want to hire a guide to get on the fish quickly.

Totem Resorts – Totem Lodge, Yellowbird Lodge and Chalet at Sioux Narrows
These cabins are furnished, equipped with cable and WiFi, and have daily maid service. There is an excellent chef in each lodge, which offers outside dining and an incredible view of the lake. You can even book the bed and breakfast plan. Food prepared for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is comparable to a very good restaurant.
Choose from Totem Lodge, Yellowbird Lodge, the French Portage Outpost, or Chalet at Sioux Narrows. These lodges are located on the Lake of the Woods and are geared more for relaxation and fishing, which means they will be more expensive. Walleyes will run 19 to 24 inches, which are just right for eating or a shore lunch. If you want something more secluded try the Fly-in fishing lodges in Sioux Narrows. Since you’re looking for the more luxurious trip you will want to consider hiring a local guide so you can get on the fish quickly. You will catch many fish, but make sure you understand the rules, as many of these guided trips are catch and release with shore lunches only.

Anderson’s Lodge in Sioux Lookout
Anderson’s Lodge lies on Lake Lac Seul, Northwest of Thunder Bay and offers great fishing.. The lodge provides full-service fishing options as well as fly-in outposts on both Lac Seul and Tully Lake. You can purchase a variety of packages, which includes boat rentals, full guided service with shore lunches, housekeeping cabins, and meal plans. If you are there for fish take you own boat or rent one, avoid the guide!
The lodges are clean and very spacious. The staff is great to work with and the meals are that of a good restaurant. Fishing for Walleyes in Lac Seul will not disappoint you, as the Walleyes run larger (26 to 29 inches) and are plentiful. If you are looking to hire a guide ask for Alan and avoid Cecil.

Garden Island Lodge
Garden Island Lodge is accessible by boat or float plane and lies about 25 miles South-West from the put-in at Mowat Landing. The resort is on an Island in Lady Evelyn Lake, located in the Smoothwater Provincial Park and miles from the nearest road. The main Lodge is on Lake Timiskaming near the Quebec boundary, but you will fish Lady Evelyn Lake, which is West of this.
You will catch a lot of Walleyes (18” plus) and in addition to excellent fishing you will be spoiled with great accommodations, food, and a professional staff. The Lodge is set up to get you on the lake early and to keep you on the lake, so they will pack lunches for you. In preparation you will need to bring all your own fishing equipment and Garden Island will do the rest. The staff will make sure your boat is ready, fueled, and has bait every morning. Here you do not have a guide, but the Lodge will give you a map, and point out where the fish are. You can catch fish for taking home, a shore lunch, or even to have the lodge cook it for you.
How To Find Garden Island Lodge
This park offers a lot of lakes, both easily accessible and those that are more difficult to reach and are not for the average fishermen. For the serious and adventurous fisherman that wants to get away from everything except Nature you will want to check this Park out. The Algonquin Park is located in Eastern Ontario, approximately 2.5 hours North of Toronto. If your are going to adventure to one of these secluded lakes you will need to be prepared, so consider safety, a survival kit, a camera, cooking, multiple portages, camping under the moonlight, and of course have fun!
Lakes in the back-country of the Park are not fished heavily because of their remote location, so this is where you want to go. Lakes along Highway 60, where fishing pressure is higher, have special regulations to ensure the populations are not over fished. As a result, Algonquin Park is considered one of the finest locations for Brook Trout and Lake Trout in the world.
