Fishing

Equal parts peaceful and exhilarating, fishing is a great excuse to watch the sunrise in silence or experience the thrill of reeling in a catch.



There are 177 species of fish in the Great Lakes. What will you catch?


It is not surprising that fishing is a very popular activity in the Great Lakes region. With hundreds of thousands of lakes and rivers, the Great Lakes provide exciting and varied fishing year-round. Fish with the whole family on calm waters of the French River. Or, take a thrilling trip out to Lake Erie in July when the giant walleye are abundant. In the colder months, go ice fishing on Lake Simcoe to capture delicious lake trout. Wherever you choose to go, this region is an angler’s paradise. Find your next fishing adventure in the Great Lakes!
