Fish Harvesting

Algonquin Provincial Park is well known for it’s Brook Trout and Lake Trout.

But it also holds other species such as Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass,

Catfish, Whitefish, Yellow Perch, Northern Pike, Muskellunge, and Walleye.

Earlier in the season up until late June, is the best for the brook and lake trout.

These cold water fish prefer cooler water and stay closer to the surface.

The bass season opens in late June and many people are surprised to find such

aggressive sportfish in Algonquin Park. During summer trout can still be caught,

but bass and northern pike are the more frequent catches. As fall settles in, the

cooler nights help cool the waters and trout become more active.

The park has special regulations and anglers need to be aware of the restrictions

before heading out. Things like slot size limits and designated voluntary catch

and release lakes are having positive effects on the Algonquin Park fishing.

Possession or use of live baitfish are prohibited in Algonquin Park.

The use or possession of live baitfish (including crayfish) or the capturing of any

baitfish using traps or nets, or the possession of any amphibian or reptile such as

frogs or salamanders is prohibited at all times.

In regards to Algonquin Provincial Park Fishing Information and Regulations, we ask our Community Members to please contact The Algonquins of Greater Golden Lake First Nation Community Office.

The Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) reached out to the AOO Office this week to announce the release of the 2023 fish consumption advisories through the online Guide to Eating Ontario Fish.

MECP encourages anglers to check fish consumption advisories before they go fishing. This will help them make informed choices about the types and amounts of fish that are safest to eat from over 2,600 Ontario lakes and rivers.

The updated guide features new and easier-to-use information, including:

The sizes and amounts of fish you can safely eat
How to quickly and easily choose the safest fish to eat
How to best prepare fish to reduce risk of contaminants
Special advice for children and people who are pregnant or may become pregnant
