An American's Guide to Fishing in Canada

With over 2 million lakes and rivers and over 180 fish species, Canada is a world-renowned hotspot for anglers everywhere.

With summer in full swing, Americans are flocking to Canada’s many lakes to reel in their fair share of fish.

Canada is one of the top spots for fishing in the world, and it’s easy to understand why. From the Pacific Northwest Coast of British Columbia to the lakes and rivers of Ontario, Canada has great fish.

Recreational fishing is a huge industry, and Americans make up the vast majority of anglers from outside of Canada.

Walleye, trout, perch, bass, and pike are the top 5 fished in Canada, with salmon being another honourable mention. Ontario and British Columbia are the top 2 fishing destinations in Canada, owing to their diverse and bountiful fish species populations and beautiful landscapes. Trophy fish are a big catch -- a 9-year-old from New Jersey caught a 270kg Great White Sturgeon in British Columbia!

Fishing in Canada is an experience like no other, so make sure all documents and licenses are ready prior to departure. Travellers with a criminal record will need a Temporary Residents Permit (TRP) to enter Canada.

And make sure to enjoy your trip! Bonne chance!
