offers great fishing for salmon, trout, pike, bass and many other area species in the heart of the 1000 Islands. This is the place to head back to shore after some time on the water for a cold beer on their licensed riverfront patio or dining room. Heading north from Kingston, there’s more lively Ontario fishing among the 5000 lakes of the Land O’Lakes region. Even if you’re not looking to land the next record-breaking walleye, there’s great fishing wherever you are on the Great Waterway.
