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.

Ontario Salmon Fishing


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.

Lets not forget all the tiny little hidden streams full of wild native brook trout with almost no fishing pressure.

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.

Big Brown Trout – Why travel thousands of miles to Argentina or New Zealand costing you big bucks when we have opportunities to catch multiple brown trout over 20 inches right here in Ontario and often within a 60 – 90 minutes drive of downtown Toronto.

And why go out west when we have opportunities to catch 30 plus steelhead a day all over Southern Ontario and with many rivers within an hour east, an hour west, or an hour south of Toronto.

In fact you could catch steelhead, salmon and big migratory brown trout literally minutes from downtown Toronto. All you need is the knowledge of where and when to go and how to effectively catch these great cold water fish of Ontario.

This website helps you gain that knowledge of where, when and how to successfully fish Ontario rivers.
