The sunset illuminates the horizon as an angler enjoys the Ontario fishing season at Rough Rock Lodge & Outpost.

As we look ahead at a new year, we can’t stop pondering the next Ontario fishing season at Rough Rock Lodge & Outpost. Fishing in Ontario is something every angler should experience, especially those with a penchant for massive sport fish like walleye, pike, and muskie. Because it offers some of Canada’s best fishing, you won’t be the only one eager for a fishing trip in Minaki, Ontario. Therefore, early booking is critical to the planning process and even more important for securing your preferred dates and lodging options. You don’t want to get all worked up for the Ontario fishing season only to learn you won’t be able to go when you want. Thoughtful planning begins with making reservations, and it’s always a good idea to do it sooner than later. To offer a bit of encouragement, we’d like to share three reasons to make your reservation now.

Transportation Logistics

On the surface, transportation seems pretty straightforward. You type in the destination into your navigation app or GPS, and away you go, right? Well, depending on where you live, you may be flying into Winnipeg before arriving at Rough Rock Lodge. If that is the case, you’ll want to save money on plane tickets by purchasing them well in advance. Furthermore, securing a rental car is almost equally crucial. The good news is that we’ll be able to greet you at the landing in Kenora; otherwise, you can arrange for Adventure Air to fly you to the outpost if you don’t want to rent a vehicle. 

Financial Planning

Oddly enough, one of the most overlooked aspects to consider for planning the Ontario fishing season is the most preliminary. Needless to say, you’re going to need enough money to purchase your vacation package, and that includes a deposit. You’d be amazed at how many anglers have had to make untimely changes to plan all because they didn’t consider the upfront costs associated with fishing in Ontario. Booking your spot now will only make your planning process easier by giving you time to save some extra money and budget accordingly. 

Taking Time off from Work

Although many anglers have worked hard for the privilege to take vacation days almost whenever they want, not everyone has earned that perk yet. Most employers require a reasonable amount of time ahead for vacation requests, so early booking will give you the information necessary to make scheduling easier on you and the human resources department. Reserving your dates at least six months ahead of time may seem overly precautious, but you’ll be happy you did as the Ontario fishing season draws closer.

If not, then we hope the information has motivated you to do so! There’s a reason why so many anglers will tell you Ontario has the best fishing in Canada, and we’d like to show you why!
