Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Walleye (Pickerel) and Northern Pike are the fish species of choice with the more popular destinations including the Mattawa River, Lake Nosbonsing, Talon Lake and Trout Lake. The ice fishing season starts in mid to late December and can last until late March, but always consult local outfitters for current ice conditions before venturing onto frozen lakes or rivers.

Whether you are looking to walk out the door of your accommodation onto the ice, or are willing to put in a little more effort to reach a secluded lake. Ice fishing opportunities abound in Mattawa Voyageur Country.

When you arrive for your ice fishing holiday you will have a wide variety of Places to Stay varying from private cabins to more social lodge settings (See 'Places to Stay'). While many lakes can be reached by car or truck the real adventure begins when seeking out the more remote lakes only accessible by snowmobile or snowshoe.
