Ontario’s reputation as a world-class fishing destination doesn’t change when winter arrives! It’s referred to as “Hardwater Heaven!” With approximately 250,000 lakes in Ontario, it’s no wonder it’s the best province to fish! There’s nothing better then getting together with friends and enjoying the day fishing.

The list I have comprised is sourced from my own personal experiences, and from fellow fishing experts. Although there are endless amazing lakes to fish in Ontario, this is merely the short list!
