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.
