Ontario Muskie Fishing

No fish fights harder or has a more ferocious appetite then a Muskie, which is the nickname for Muskellunge. These fish can reach great sizes. In 1994, the MNR started stocking Muskie in our water system. Now these Muskie are in the 20 pound range and still growing.

Even though the stocked Muskie are in the 20 pound range and the most common Muskie caught, a natural Muskie population does exists and these older fish can potentially be over 55 inches and reach weights of 40 pounds.

Many of our guests who are Muskie hunters commonly catch monster pike, which is also a hard fighting fish. Pike can also reach great sizes. Northern Pike in our area are very common so you will catch more Pike than Muskie. The important thing is you are catching fish and having fun.
