I'm new to this forum. Long time fisherman (I try anyway). In my 50s so I'm not a fishing newbie.


I just inherited a 14 ft Sportspal canoe with an electric trolling motor. I already have a fishing kayak.


Fishing from a kayak is fine but is a lot more work when trying to troll (a good workout though). 


Now that I have the canoe, I'm trying to figure out a good place where I can camp (tent or rustic cabin) and fish using the canoe. I live South Western Ontario. I won't give you the exact location since I worry about everyone moving here :) :) Let's just say  Kitchener  / Waterloo / Cambridge area.

I have a 4x4 truck (Tacoma TRD) so I'm good with rough roads. Although I don't want something that will guarantee dinging, scratching the truck. I'd like to stay within a 4hr drive of my area. I'm willing to go a bit further if there is a higher possibility of catching fish.


I'm not picky about fish species, although traditionally I've fished for trout (with mixed luck). I'd like a species that can be eaten. I'm for catch and release but the reason I fish is to catch and eat them.


Without giving away exact coordinates, does anyone have any recommendations? Enough information that will give me (and my buddy) a chance of catching some fish.


Have a good day.
