Fly Fishing in Canada Can’t Be Beat

Fly fishing in Canada is increasing popular, just ask the fishing lovers about their dream fishing destination, and the answer will be same across the board – Canada. And why not, the country offers a beautiful blend of fishing expeditions in the backdrop of scenic beauty, which is bound to send waves of excitement in the hearts of those who are truly passionate about fishing.

Fly fishing is an ancient and distinct angling method that is most popular as a way of catching salmon and trout, but nowadays fly fishing in Canada is also employed for a wide range of gamefish species such as panfish, carp, pike, and saltwater marine species like redfish, tarpon, snook, bonefish, and striped bass. Fly fishing is a typical form of fishing wherein fish are caught using artificial flies cast with a special fly fishing rod and fly line. The fly line is generally coated with plastic, and is heavy enough to be able to send the fly to its target. The “fly”, for all practical purposes, is weightless.

Out of the many fly fishing in Canada destinations, Ontario (located 130 miles towards the northwest of the International Falls, Minnesota) is among the most sought after fly fishing destinations. The best thing about this place is that it is accessible only through float planes. For accommodation, the best places are remote outpost cabins located at Ontario’s northwestern region. Try to get those outfitters who promise to offer you all their fly-in lakes and complete fishing privacy while fly fishing in Canada.

If you are boarding in Kenora, among the most secluded lakes are Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, and Northern Pike. The wildering sceneries and fishing action that these lakes offer, is simply unbeatable.
