Top 4 Fishing Lodges In Northern Ontario, Canada - Updated 2024

| 4 min read

Those who fish know that Ontario offers some of the best fishing spots in Canada. This is because most of Northern Ontario’s lakes and streams are abundant with walleye, bass, jackfish, lake trout, salmon, and whitefish. Visit the remote lakes that are accessible only by air, and experience a different kind of fishing that you may have only dreamed about. There are also several fishing resorts and lodges near lakes and beaches that you can stay in for convenience and comfort. Do note that fishing can vary by season and by weather conditions, and though you may not always get the fish that you want, don’t let that stop you from creating a whole new fishing experience in Northern Ontario. Here is our list of the top fishing lodges in Northern Ontario, Canada, where you can choose the accommodation that best suits your taste.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent guest reviews, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and a location with easy access to fishing spots. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 19, 2024.
