(((((((( Fishing Ontario ))))))))
Want to take a fishing trip to Canada sometime before it gets too cold during the days there. Would drive from mid-west and would prefer not to fly-in the first time to a lodge (unless you can recommend a killer spot!) Really don't want to drive too far in if possible. What kind of prices do I have to pay for a good place with guides. I can drag a boat rig up there if needed. I would prefer not to though. I'd love to hear about your favorite spots!!!

go to toronto, drive to haliburton, temagami, algonquin park et., et.
advice from a local.

If you're looking for more info on Temagami, or want to make local contacts for information, try visiting, Experience a Temagami Vacation, where you can find articles about the area and a discussion forum. Hope this helps, Temagami is a beautiful place to visit, and the fishing can be great!

It's already getting pretty cool in Ontario.

If you asked your question in a forum about Canada instead of one about the USA, you might get more useful information.

Prices vary depending on the standard of accomodation, and how badly you need a guide, and what kind of boat you want. Salmon fishing on Lake Ontario costs more than being out in a 14 footer in northern Ontario.

Scott posted this question more than SEVEN years ago so it is possible he already found the right place and guides.

I am really curious as to how on earth a 7 yr old post ends up here! :) Looks like Iglooman topped it so I wonder if you cld tell me where & how you found this post. (preferably today & not 7 years fm now! :) :))

Ryan Oct 19th, 2004 07:43 AM

Hmm, Iglooman has never posted before. Iglooman's only comment is written in marketing brochure vernacular. The cynic in me would say Iglooman topped a post that fit his business needs. Nah, someone would NEVER do that on Fodors.

...but... how did he find it to begin w/ "fishing in Ontario"?????

gc Oct 19th, 2004 10:32 AM

but what's up with the ((((((((...))))))))?

Keith Oct 19th, 2004 01:17 PM

He probably searched on Temagami


Scarlett Oct 19th, 2004 05:40 PM

<o((((((>>>> maybe he was trying to make a fish? I tried, but as you can see, sigh~

BAK Oct 19th, 2004 07:50 PM

About cynicism ... I had the same thought.

But if someone was trying to promote tourism in Temagami, it sure is a bad time of the year to do this.

Anyway, it's a nice part of the world in which to go fishing, but for anyone reading this and thinking of going fishing, wait until next spring.

Scarlett, that is an AMAZING fish. I'm impressed with your computer/artistic talent. Can you do a penguin? I have a particular fondness for penguins.

Kath Oct 20th, 2004 08:02 AM

And kitties. Can you do a kitty too?

wow Oct 20th, 2004 08:14 AM

Kath...did you see those night shirts by Hatley called "Cat's Pyjamas"??? I bought one for our cat sitter for Christmas! (I did not go out to do Christmas shopping!!!'s only Oct!!!... but when I saw them I grabbed a couple!) Really great....100% cotton....They had "Dog Shirts" too... :) :)
