A Round the Province Guide to Ice Fishing Vacations
Posted by Chill Editorial Staff on
January 24, 2011


Not everyone is willing to wait for spring to go fishing. While some of us might be a little hesitant to head out on the ice, others have made it their lifetime passion. All across Ontario, prime fishing spots are lined with huts as the ice fishing community gathers for another season. Joining the crowd is a great way to get to know the sport, pick up some tips and check out some of the best gear. If you're not sure where to go, check out some of the resorts with special ice fishing packages or hut rentals that are available all over Ontario.

Central Ontario
While it is definitely one of the most crowded areas for fishing (winter or summer), this area is easily accessible with most lakes reachable by car. If you're short on time or looking to stay close to home, you will find lots of facilities, marinas, hut rentals and bait vendors which is perfect for that quick vacation or day trip.

If you're in the Guelph area, check out Guelph Lake. This 1700 acre reservoir was formed by the construction of the Guelph Dam on the Speed River. Managed by the Grand River Conservation Authority, a daily fee is charged for entrance and ice huts are available to rent. The area is known for fish species from small and largemouth bass, black crappie, pike and panfish.

Just 60 miles north of Toronto, Lake Simcoe is by far the most popular fishing lake in Ontario. In the winter, this lake is teeming with huts and there are dozens of commercial fishing hut operators. You can have everything taken care of here from heated hut rentals to transportation, food, bait tackle and other facilities. Most common species for ice fishing include lake trout, whitefish, panfish, pike, walleye and ling.
