This information allows you to explore the lakes and rivers of Eastern Ontario with the confidence of a good guide. Whether you are a local fishing pro or visiting an Ontario fishing hot spot for the very first time, our detailed information is sure to prove valuable in your success rate as you take in the natural beauty and colonial history behind the oldest settled region of the province.
Boasting a great reputation as one of the premiere fishing destinations in Ontario, Eastern Ontario is home to hundreds of beautiful lakes and waterbodies. The unique collection of cool and warm bodies of water in the area provides an endless array of angling opportunities. Smallmouth or largemouth bass are prolific in the region, with the majority of fishing holes being inhabited by either species. Brook trout and lake trout are also quite popular. Anglers targeting these sport fish can expect to find a combination of natural and stocked fishing opportunities. Larger predatory fish such as the ever popular walleye (pickerel) and northern pike can also be found throughout the region in decent quantities.
The lakes and streams in this region vary from the popular Rideau and Trent-Severn Waterway chain of lakes to small backcountry lakes. As an added bonus, we also feature some of more popular river hot spots in the area. The popular lakes are home to cottages and can be busy destinations during the summer months, but they do offer great boat launch facilities and the convenient amenities to help make a perfect fishing holiday. If serene surroundings are what you seek, lakes found between the main highways (e.g. areas between Highway 28, 62 and 41 or north of Highway 7) would be the ideal spot to bait your hook, sit back and relax: until you get your first bite, that is.
Although Eastern Ontario’s well-developed road systems provide easy access to most fishing hot spots in the region, there harder to reach lakes that require a 4wd vehicle, ATV or are only accessible by trail or portage. Let us also be your guide on the road to your fishing adventures and pick up your very own Backroad GPS Maps or the Cottage Country Ontario and Eastern Ontario Backroad Mapbooks. In addition to the detailed backcountry maps, our Mapbooks and Backroad GPS Maps provide detailed information on everything from camping areas to other fishing opportunities and are the perfect companion to the Fishing Mapbook Series. So cast your line, sit back and relax.
Happy fishing everyone!
