Canoe Fishing - Leaving from the GTA

July 6, 2018

Ever fished in a canoe for Bass? As a child, the only way I could get out on the water to fish was in a canoe. Since then, I have fished in many styles and techniques, and must say, I still prefer fishing in a canoe. Canoe fishing allows you to quietly sneak up on that big bass waiting to bite your bait!

INCLUDED IN THE ADVENTURE
Shuttle to and from Toronto or Belleville; breakfast, lunch, and chef inspired dinner; Canoe, paddle, and PFD; Water taxi to north end of Limerick Lake; fishing pole, bait, and fishing licence

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Anyone can do this trip. Whether you are a pro or a beginner. If you are a beginner and want to be taught just mention it.
This expedition is for up to 12 people. Don’t miss out on your grand opportunity.

Barron Canyon Canoe Trip

May 26-28

This is a Cruising Canoes favorite. This is one of the most beautiful places in the Algonquin Park Boundaries. The east side of Algonquin Park is quite different in appearance to the west. While the west side is dominated by hardwood forests and thick vegetation, conifers predominate to the east and the forests have a more open feel. The rugged pine-and-granite scenery of the east side resembles regions of the Canadian Shield north of the park. What does this mean? It’s awesome!
