Experience Fishing

Experience Fishing Banner and Partners

Learn to fish on the stunning, historic French River — just 3.5 hours north of Toronto!

From learning how to tie knots to why it’s a good idea to practice catch and release, we’ll show you the ropes and get you hooked so you can’t wait to come back for more. 

But it’s not just about the fishing – a lodge getaway is about the entire experience. Boating, relaxing, dining, and experiencing the great outdoors is what it’s all about. We can’t wait to share our backyards with you!
