Canada is famous for its fishing lodges and resorts, more so than any other country. The lakes and coastline of Canada have the greatest wealth and diversity of freshwater and saltwater fishing bounty that anyone can imagine.
The Caribbean may be a great place for hooking marlins and swordfish and the Great Lakes region in the United States might be another good freshwater fishing zone but nowhere else do you have such a great fishing culture as in Canada with lodges strewn across just about all the Canadian provinces. You can fish for freshwater and saltwater salmon, trout, bass, walleye, pike, muskie, halibut, and some fish only found in abundance in Canadian lakes and oceans such as arctic char.
Canada Fishing Lodges and Fishing Resorts
Canada Resorts allows you to book fishing lodges in your area of choice around the country. The province of Ontario, for example, is further sub-divided into nine geographical regions which may be further demarcated into two or three sub-regions.
Once you narrow down exactly where you are going, you only have to choose from ten or fifteen lodges and there is a decent amount of information on the lodges. A brief description is followed by a table listing what facilities are offered, whether children and pets are allowed, and the language spoken by the staff.
Fishing Specialties of the Canadian Provinces
Ontario is one of the highly recommended places to look for fishing lodges especially if you want to fish for the freshwater trophy walleye, northern pike, muskie, trout, and bass. Quebec is recommended for walleye, northern pike, lake trout, perch, whitefish, sturgeon, salmon, and arctic char fishing. The Gaspe region of Quebec is recommended as a prime fishing area for salmon and the Far North for the rare but hard to catch arctic char.
Alberta is renowned for its various varieties of trout as well as walleye, pike, and perch. Manitoba is also good for walleye, trout, pike, and bass. Now, if you want to catch saltwater fish head on over to British Columbia and you will found saltwater trout (the steelhead) and various varieties of salmon including coho, chinook, sockeye, and pink.
In New Brunswick, not only can you find landlocked salmon, trout, pickerel, and bass but it is also world-famous for its Atlantic salmon fishing. Similarly you can head over to Newfoundland for Atlantic salmon as well as brook trout, lake trout, northern pike, and arctic char.
Nova Scotia is as famous for salmon and trout fishing as for its cliffs and beaches. You can catch salmon, trout, and bass on Prince Edward Island. However, if you charter a boat and venture into the ocean there are huge schools of cod, mackerel, flounder, and herring to be found and caught.
There are even fishing lodges in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon if you wish to go somewhere very remote. Saskatchewan is closer to civilization and there are quite a few lodges but it is still remote enough to make you feel that you have gotten away from the world.
