The Bass & Trout of Algoma

September 18, 2020 By Mark Melnyk

The word “world class” gets thrown about a LOT and has almost become a cliché in the angling world, however, if you are truly vested, take your time and do your research, you will find World Class angling opportunities right here. Opportunities for trophy fish in the Algoma region are basically endless no matter the […]


A Return Fishing Trip to Algoma

December 5, 2019 By Wil Wegman

It was our last morning fishing beautiful northern Lake Huron out from Blue Heron Resort on the Spanish River.  The rocky terrain was quite similar to that of this Great Lake’s Georgian Bay way to the south where fishing partner Doug Wadden and I have each spent far more time; yet in some respects it’s […]


An Early Bass Fishing Trip To Algoma

June 27, 2019 By Wil Wegman

For many years now, I have been fortunate enough to enjoy the early catch and release bass fishing season that New York State has to offer. Trips to lakes like Chautauqua or Oneida at the end of May or early June were a great way to get a head start on the late opener we […]


5 Reasons to Visit Algoma This Summer

May 11, 2018 By Chris Mitchell

It was only when I left Ontario that I realized the true enormity of the province. The first time I left the homeland on my own was in 2006, and I was off to explore Ireland. I saw Ireland as this nation bursting with culture but couldn’t quite grasp that Ontario was much the same. […]

Ah, Tasty Fish Recipe

August 30, 2017 By Heather Bot

This recipe was first published in the 2016 edition of the Algoma Travel Guide. The recipe and photos were submitted to us by Yvan Breton. Whether you are pan frying, oven cooking, or steaming your fish, it’s all good but my favourite recipe is definitely deep-fried fish breaded in corn flake crumbs. Ingredients 2 – […]

Fall Fishing for Steelhead in the St. Marys River

October 21, 2016 By Robert LaRue

Fishing in the fall for most anglers is probably one of the best times to catch that big trophy they’ve been looking for all summer. Depending on the species, the cooler water temperatures allow some to feed longer in the mornings and evenings. Steelhead specifically, which we were fishing for this past Thanksgiving, are active […]

Anglers from neighbouring states in Michigan and Ohio, as well as Ontarians from Southern Ontario are catching on to Algoma’s best kept secret. These anglers are heading north to find world class fishing at drive-in cottage resorts! Extending along Trans Canada Highway 17 East,  these trophy smallmouth bass and northern pike reside in secret lakes […]


10 Fishing Tips for Algoma Walleye

February 5, 2016 By Mark Romanack

1) Walleye are found in shallow water more often than most anglers realize. Concentrate your search for walleye in water 15 feet deep or less and more often than not you’ll be zeroed in on the best walleye water in most lakes. 2) Low stretch super braids or fused fishing lines are ideal for walleye […]


Fly Fishing with Mice Patterns

December 17, 2015 By Colin McKeown

For fly fishers, using mice patterns on the surface can lead to some of the most explosive and exciting takes.   Mice maybe cute but to big predatory fish they are an easy meal. Mice often fall off grassy banks and out of trees into the water. Big predators such as smallmouth bass, northern pike […]
