I'm in the Ottawa Valley and would be happy to point you in the direction of a few hotspots. There is so much water out here that I haven't spent any time on the Ottawa River because i've been so preoccupied with the lakes in the area. Lots of great bass/pike/walleye fishing out here as well. Going to want to stick to bigger water for muskie (Kemptville on Rideau system too) but if you want to get into some of the smaller bodies let me know!

Thanks for the offer DMG.  The Ottawa valley was my home - born and raised in Lowertown.  I plan to revisit a few of my dad's hotspots.  I have a couple of brothers and nephews just waiting to bring me to their favorite spots.  Not sure I'll time to explore any more during my 2 weeks back home.


Thanks again.

No problem brother! Good luck! I'm actually doing a similar trip in the spring from southern Ontario to Lethbridge and fishing a lot of northern Ontario along the way! Let us know how the trip go!

If your schedule allows, there's a little gem in southern Saskatchewan just 15 minutes south of Maple Creek.  The Cypress Hills are the highest elevation point east of the Rockies that offers some of the most beautiful night skies in North America.  Bonus offerings are small rivers and streams with nice trout waiting for the right fly to hit the surface of the water.

Definitely try for gar where the Mississippi flows into the Ottawa! Ive seen countless big gar there and a friend of mine caught a 48" longnose gar in a small bay a few hundred yards into the Mississippi just before you hit Galleta. Seen big musky, walleye and largies there as well as crappie! That section of the Mississippi is great.

Thanks Apache, that really helps cutting down on searching a lot of water.  Much appreciated.

Not sure where he used to put in but my father in law used to fish the north channel between Manitoulin and the mainland. Big lakers and pike.



Also, if you trek down 69/400 to the Key River it's possible to access the Bustard Islands in Georgian Bay.


Thanks for the links Joel.  I'll check these out.  I have a friend in Blind River I plan to stop and visit.  Will see if he can point me in the general areas where those big lakers and pike are. Was also looking into the Moon river area for muskies and bass.

Thanks Sunfish.  Sounds like a challenge I might want to entertain.  Any suggestion where best to launch a boat from?

Sorry Trev, Called you Sunfish.  I'm new on the site and mistook Sunfish above your pic to be your name.  Never too old too learn.  LOL.
