Fishing and Angling
Anglers will discover fish heaven with the countless fishing opportunities in Ontario’s Mattawa Voyageur Country, all within easy driving distance of Le Voyageur Inn. The historic Ottawa River meets with the Mattawa River a short walk from our Inn’s front door.
Home to walleye, northern pike, large and small-mouth bass, lake trout, brook trout, whitefish, perch and muskie, the most popular fishing destinations are the Ottawa River, Talon Lake, Lake Nipissing and Lake Nosbonsing. If you are looking for seclusion, head deep into Algonquin Park and find a river, stream or lake far removed from the crowd. The only company you will find will be the fish.
Popular spots for winter ice fishing are the Mattawa River, Lake Nosbonsing, Talon Lake, Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake. The ice fishing season starts in mid to late December and can last until late March. Always check with local outfitters for current conditions before venturing out onto the ice.
