With three major bodies of water to fish from, our area is truly an incredible location to cast your line. Muskie, Walleye, Bass and Steelhead swim fat and plentiful in Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie and the Detroit River. It’s no wonder we’ve become recognized as “The Muskie Capital of Canada.” Lake Erie’s western basin is also brimming with Yellow Perch and Rainbow Trout. Guide your own boat into one of our many area docks, head out with one of our experienced charters, or simply drop a line from a waterside park. In July and February, Canadian residents can take advantage of license-free fishing during the annual Ontario Family Fishing Weekends. Our unique climate allows for fishing year-round.
