Spanning career of 30+ years, the angling experts of IrishCreek Outfitters continue to lead customers on fish-seeking forays across the fertile waters of the Ottawa and Bonnechere Rivers. The eight-hour day tour for two outfits nautical neophytes and seasoned line casters alike with a boat, a knowledgeable guide, and all equipment necessary for fishing, such as spray cans of river-nymph repellent. Midway through the expedition, guests head back to shore to stretch their legs and share a catered lunch. At the end of an idyllic day spent trolling tree-lined waters, IrishCreek photographs the day's catch of finned prey such as musky, walleye, or northern pike, which accomplished fin wranglers can proudly display or employ as a subtle warning to surly pet goldfish.
On 4.5-hour ice-fishing expeditions, experienced guides take participants out to plumb the frozen surfaces of the Ottawa River, Golden Lake, and Muskrat Lake. Like casting directors for wilderness documentaries, adventurers can monitor fish with finders and Aqua-Vu underwater video cameras while hiding from chill winds in portable Frabill Headquarters shelters that can hold up to six people. Guides supply each expedition crew with fishing rods, tackle, and live bait, and portable propane heaters help keep fishing fingers primed. After wrestling and winning final-round staring contests against finned fighters such as walleye, northern pike, and lake trout, participants can ready their catches with included cleaning and packaging.

About 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 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.
