Top Ice Fishing Destinations in Northern Ontario
Explore many of the popular ice fishing spots around Ontario
A cornerstone of winter activity in northern Ontario is ice fishing. With a slew of lakes and popular fishing spots, northern Ontario cities like Kenora, Dryden, and Sudbury is sterling destinations for your next (or first) ice fishing excursion.
In Dryden, the charming and eclectic city found between Kenora and Sioux Lookout, you'll find pleasant accommodations and a touch of local small town flair – not to mention one of the top ice fishing lakes in the province.
Make your way to Wabigoon Lake, the banks of which border Dryden's southern edge. You'll land healthy sized walleye, small mouth bass, and muskie.
When you visit and stay in Kenora, you'll be just minutes from the Lake of the Woods.
During the winter months, once the ice starts to form atop the lake, local anglers have been known to land pike, walleye, perch, and even sauger – and the ice has been measured at four feet thick in certain areas. There's no question, your time in Kenora will be high lighted by exciting, if not brisk, ice fishing adventures.
In Sudbury, you'll be a short, scenic drive away from Lake Temagami – rent a bungalow, or simply find a decent looking spot and drill your hole. You'll be well on your way to reeling in a good amount of pike, ling cod, lake herring, and trout.
