One of the best places in the world to fish, bar none, is Canada. It doesn't matter which province you're in or visiting; there are good times and good catches to be had for amateur and expert anglers alike. Practically every desirable freshwater species imaginable can be caught in Canada, whether the waters are cool or warm. And luckily, it's not just Canadian anglers who can enjoy Canada fishing trips.
You know how many Canadian snowbirds head south each year for the winter, right? Well, when things warm up each year, plenty of Americans cross the border in the opposite direction to try their lines in the country's many bountiful waters. Planning your future RV traveling adventures? Canada fishing trips should definitely be on the itinerary!

Another tip: This is not an exhaustive list, so use this as a starting guide!
Eagle Lake, Ontario
You're going to start this most awesome of Canada fishing trips in Ontario at Eagle Lake. Located in northern Ontario, Eagle Lake is renowned for the muskie that call it home. You're likely going to find yourself satisfied with any of the other species that can also be found swimming around here. Potential catches include walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and lake trout.
The fishing season at Eagle Lake runs from May to November, so don't miss out!
Cranberry Lakes, Manitoba
Heading west into northern Manitoba, you should check out the Cranberry Lakes. Split up into the First, Second, and Third Cranberry lakes, there is a wide variety of fish species to catch in their waters — and some of them are such an impressive size that the Cranberries are informally known as "big fish factories!" So, keep an eye out for some big walleye, jumbo lake trout, and especially northern pike.
The fishing season at the Cranberry Lakes is usually from May to October.
Reindeer Lake, Saskatchewan
Sticking to the theme of northern provincial fishing, Reindeer Lake in northern Saskatchewan is calling out for you, dear angler. Here, it's not just the fishing that'll wow you, but the surroundings. You're in an unspoiled wilderness. You're insulated from the hustle and bustle of modern life as you cast a line in the hopes of snagging perch, walleye, Arctic grayling, burbot, whitefish, suckers, and cisco.
Oh, and what about trophy-size pike and lake trout? Yeah, you need to visit Reindeer Lake and see what you can catch on this leg of your Canada trip!
Fishing season in Saskatchewan runs longer than in some other provinces and locales, usually from May until March or mid-April.
Siebert Lake, Alberta
Once you head into Alberta from Saskatchewan, more unspoiled natural beauty awaits. At Siebert Lake, for example, you can fish in the clear waters while taking in the rest of the area. Your main goal when fishing at Siebert Lake (aside from just enjoying being there) is to catch some of the legendary northern pike that its waters are known for, as well as some walleye.
Alberta's fishing season runs from the beginning of June to the end of March.
Haida Gwaii, British Columbia
It's a bit of a trek to get to Haida Gwaii, an archipelago with two main islands just off the coast of northern British Columbia (in waters just south of southern Alaska, in case you were wondering). Once you get there, though, you're in for some of the most impressive and rewarding salmon fishing in the world. You can try for chinook salmon, sockeye salmon, as well as halibut, rockfish, and snapper.
The fishing season tends to run from May to September, with some of the best catches happening in June (hint hint!).
