Great Fishing in Cornwall, Ontario


Posted by: Jenni MacDonald


Why Do We Love Cornwall, Ontario?

A local Century 21 Real Estate Agent, Mike VanderMeer, and I have compiled a list of the reasons we love Cornwall, Ontario.  We’ve compiled 21 reasons, which we will share with you, one at a time.  We would love to hear the reasons you love to live here too!

REASON #12 – Great Fishing

A sport for both young and old and a good variety of fish such as

Ontario Perch


Catch the next world-record musky by trolling large crankbaits and inline spinners at 4 to 5 miles per hour to cover the large expanses of the river and entice a strike.

Northern Pike

Reel in some impressive northern pike using a more traditional method of casting slender minnow profile crankbaits along weed edges, rocky points and shoal tops.


Troll deeper water breaklines and humps using slender minnow profile crankbaits to reel in some massive walleye.

Smallmouth Bass

One of the most effective ways to attract the smallmouth bass is to dropshot four to five-inch paddletail soft plastics in darker patterns to mimic gobies, one of the smallmouth bass’ main food sources.


Attracting angler’s from around the globe, the carp found in Cornwall and the Counties are always up for putting up a fight. 30 to 40-pound carp are common for shore anglers and can be caught with bait as simple as corn kernels.
