Finest Freshwater Fishing

The dozens of rivers, lakes, streams, and other waterways just minutes away from your new home in the 1000 Islands & St. Lawrence River Region boast some of the finest freshwater fishing opportunities in the world.

Record Size Fish!

Pike, perch, bass, muskies, walleyes, and more can be found in the St. Lawrence in the Brockville area, which lies in the Zone 18 (Eastern Ontario) district of the province. Record-size muskies have been caught locally. Both smallmouth and largemouth bass abound in local waters, too, which make the entire region tremendously popular for anglers of all ages and skill levels.

Countless Lakes, Ponds & Streams

Of course, the St. Lawrence isn’t the only place to cast your line here. Nearly countless lakes, streams, and plain old fishing holes abound in the area. Charleston Lake to the north of Brockville makes for a fantastic day-long getaway, as the huge lake—over 100 miles of shoreline, over 600 acres of surface area, and over 100 islands and islets—is well stocked with bass, pike, trout, perch, and more. Graham Lake, Temperance Lake, Centre Lake, and Lees Pond are similar fisherman’s paradises just north of the city. Bass, pike, catfish, and perch can be found in these waters.

In The Heart Of Fishing Country 

Other key fishing spots abound in the region as a whole. Less than an hour’s easy drive from your new home and you can have your fishing boat in the water in the Rideau River, Rideau Lake, Loughborough Lake, the Mississippi River, and more.
