Golden Eagle Smallies – Episode 506

On this Fish’n Canada episode, Angelo ventures northward with his grandson “Niki” to a remote corner of Ontario, fishing on the renowned Montreal River. Their home-base is Golden Eagle Camp, which is situated in Sidney Creek, one of many arms that branch from the main river. One of the great things about drive-to operations like Golden Eagle is […]

Fish Talk – Working The Weeds

Fish Talk – Ostriches and Walleyes

Hiya folks, I’ve got a question for you today: What do ostriches and Walleyes have in common? Well, the answer is ostriches don’t usually—don’t ever—stick their heads in the sand and Walleyes are rarely belly-to-the-bottom totally inactive.

French River, Ontario (Largemouth Bass)

This month’s hotspot is tucked away at the back of a long shallow finger at the top of the French River called Wigwam Bay. We’d highly recommend using the services of a Chaudière Lodge guide, this bay is really off the beaten path.
