Did You Know? – An American Angler in Ontario

Did you know that of all the American anglers that travel to Canada to fish each year, around half of them choose the province of Ontario as their ultimate destination?

Perhaps it’s because the province contains 15-20 percent of the world’s fresh water? Maybe it’s because Ontario contains more than 158 species of freshwater fish, with a long list of high profile sportfish. Or could it be that there are more than 1600 licensed tourist operators that are ready, willing and able to cater to these ardent anglers?

To have the luxury of fishing a lake, river and stream all on the same trip is almost mind-boggling to some of our neighbours to the south. Yet, it’s second nature to Ontarians.

With Canada being ranked as one of the world’s top fishing destinations, and the province of Ontario having such a desirable list of fishing attributes, it’s pretty simple to see why American anglers choose Ontario as their journey’s end year after year.

Just another reason to Go Fish in Ontario.
