Expert guides supply anglers with all necessary equipment and lead them to catch walleye and northern pike on the Ottawa River. Heated shelters keep fingers toasty, and photos commemorate each catch. All participants must possess a valid fishing licence, which is available through the province of Ontario's official website. Children 12 and younger normally fish for free if accompanied by an adult, with a limit of two children per adult.
Irish Creek Outfitters
For more than 30 years, the guides at Irish Creek Outfitters have explored Ottawa's local waterways and woods in search of trophy fish and game birds. During guided fishing trips along the Ottawa River, Golden Lake, or Muskrat Lake, trip leaders equip anglers with necessary equipment and hard-earned techniques for catching wall-worthy catches. In addition to using digital maps and Aqua-Vu underwater video cameras, fishing experts select lures that resemble seasonal food sources such as bugs, minnows, or limited-edition rib sandwiches. During the winter, they duck the chill wind inside portable shelters with propane heaters while wrestling and winning finned fighters such as walleye, northern pike, and lake trout.
