On six wind-swept acres of sprawling green grass and leafy trees, two half-acre ponds shimmer and occasionally ripple as rainbow trout pierce the surface in search of tiny winged dinners. The scenery is pleasant, but the trout are the stars of the show at Burd’s Family Fishing resort where anglers of all kinds cast lines into well-stocked ponds in hopes of big catches. The staff provides all equipment including a rod and bait, allowing new fisherman to try out the sport without investing in expensive gear and a “Gone Fishing” garage door cover. They also clean the incandescent fish for free and bag them on ice for easy transport. Rod-reelers need only pay admission and a fee per hooked trout. Visitors can also take a respite from angling to picnic among the pastoral landscape and tranquil ponds by bringing their own lunch.
Salmon and trout have a hard time hiding from Big Game Fishing Charters' 22-foot boat, even if they put on their best fake moustaches. In addition to rods and bait, the vessel brings along GPS systems and tracking gear from companies such as Fish Hawk. However, the most sophisticated fish finder stands at the boat's controls: expert angler Adrian Chapman. A member of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Mr. Chapman has helped countless passengers pull fish from Lake Ontario since he started his company in 1999. He supplies everything needed for successful charters, including bait, equipment, and a second pair of hands to snap photographs once passengers reel in a prized catch.

Kawartha Lakes Trout Farm is a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto—just close enough to be convenient and just far enough way to feel like a true escape from city life. The tranquil lake is surrounded by verdant trees, making it a lush backdrop for fly fishing, swimming, paddleboating, or ceremoniously summoning the ghost of Bob Ross. Visitors can picnic at tables on the shore, rounding out their meals with items from the snack bar or the smoked trout sold onsite. After a long day of fishing, carousing on the playground, and tossing horseshoes, anglers can retire to their cozy campsite tent.
Kawartha Lakes also offers wintertime ice-fishing adventures, during which guests can keep warm inside a heated hut. The farm additionally hosts ice-skating outings.
