Ontario is one of the most beautiful places in North America. Anglers can experience tranquil waters, vast tracts of towering forests, long sandy beaches, and the awe-inspiring sight of Niagara Falls. Our clean and friendly cities boast world-class entertainment, shopping, and fine dining.
Every angler dreams of the perfect fishing experience, the perfect challenge, the perfect cast, and, of course, the perfect catch. Fortunately, there’s still one place where those dreams are met – and exceeded. And that place is Ontario. Home to 15 per cent of the world’s freshwater, our 400,000 lakes, rivers, and streams have some of the finest freshwater sport fishing anywhere. Here, muskie can reach 65 pounds (29.5 kg) and anglers catch more than 8 million walleye each year, including some of the biggest in North America – the Ontario record is 22.25 pounds (10.1 kg). Then there’s northern pike, brook and lake trout, salmon, panfish, steelhead, carp, and whitefish. And all of these species can be caught within a day’s drive of each other. Ontario has a tremendous assortment of freshwater sport fish, but it has an even wider variety of places to catch them. From clear, cold lakes of only a few acres to the largest inland seas on the continent, from rushing streams to big, brawling rivers – whether you pursue your quarry from a boat or canoe, in chest waders, or from shore – there’s a fishing hole with your name on it. If you’re looking for an exciting fishing adventure, charter a boat for the day. It’s a perfect way to explore Ontario’s magnificent waterways. Or board a float plane or train and take off to a remote lake.
Artex can offer you the accommodation, facilities and services to suit every taste and budget. You’ll discover peaceful surroundings, great fishing action, and maybe the adventure of a lifetime too.
