Welcome to FISHinONTARIO a Website dedicated to inspiring enthusiasm for fishing Ontario, its abundant lakes, rivers and streams and committed to providing a one-stop source for information about fishing in Ontario.
The word Ontario is Iroquoian for beautiful or shining waters and, with approximately 250,000 lakes, its no wonder that Ontario is the number one fishing destination in North America.
Globally, Ontario contains one quarter of all the available freshwater in the world! Ontario is also renowned for having the worlds largest freshwater island (Manitoulin Island) and the worlds largest lake within a lake ( Manitou Lake on Manitoulin Island)!
The Great Lakes, that define much of Ontario, include Lake Superior (in Northwestern Ontario) which is the worlds largest freshwater lake by surface area and there is enough water in all five of the Great Lakes to cover all of the land in Canada twelve feet deep!
The Iroquois, who so wisely named Ontario for its shining waters also intrinsically knew that this area was a fishing paradise. In fact, of the 180 native fish species found in Canada, 144 can be found in the shining waters of Ontario.
We, at FISHinONTARIO, recognize Ontario for the fishing paradise that it is and we invite you to visit our pages and discover for yourself why Ontario should be your premier destination if you love fishing as we do.
