About River Fishing In Ontario

If you ask any river angler from outside of the great lakes region where to go for big brown trout you might hear the words Montana, New Zealand, or Argentina, and if you asked about where to go for steelhead you’ll likely hear BC, Oregon, or Alaska, but did you know that Fishing Trout and Steelhead in Ontario can be just as good.

Southern Ontario is home to hundreds of rivers and streams with resident trout and steelhead in them and the fishing is so good that catching 60 steelhead a day or landing 6 brown trout over 20 inches in one day is very possible.

Steelhead and Salmon – Many of our Ontario rivers that flow into the great lakes also have large runs of big salmon, with many runs as good as those famous steelhead and salmon rivers out west.

Landing 20, 30, or even as many as 60 steelhead or salmon over 20 pounds a day is possible right here in Ontario.

Ontario has opportunities for anglers to fish for many different species including large Chinook salmon that can average 25 pounds with some even over 40lbs, as well as hard fighting and high jumping Coho salmon, big migratory brown trout over 30lbs, and even Atlantic salmon.

Not many places can offer all that variety and all at a distance and a price anyone can handle.
