Fishing at Pine Grove: The Pickerel River provides 40 miles of boating for the avid fisherperson and explorer alike. Fish the Pickerel River itself, or for the more adventuresome, ... moreenjoy a fishing experience on one of our outpost lakes. Predominant species are walleye (pickerel), northern pike, bass, and pan fish, including crappie. Fishing & Hunting Licences are sold in town. At the resort we sell ice, fishing rods and bait. We also provide a screened fish cleaning hut and freezer service.

Over 20 years ago, local cottagers and tourist operators started the first pond reared walleye (pickerel) hatchery in the province of Ontario. This annual volunteer project has released hundreds of thousands of walleye fingerlings into the river, in addition to making major improvements to area spawning beds, and enhancing both the fishery and the reputation of the community.

There is never a day when you cannot get out on the river to fish or boat as it has many sheltered bays, and it is not subject to the rough water of large lakes, and in addition, fluctuating water levels are not a problem on the Pickerel River system. The river is controlled by dams, which maintain the water levels throughout the fishing season.

Family Fishing & License Free Days:
Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card. The Ontario Government designates two periods throughout the year as licence-free, the 3-day Family Day Weekend in February, and a full 9 days in July, which coincides with National Fishing Week.

Head out on your own, bring a friend or family along and introduce them to fishing, or participate in a local event.

Boating & Rentals:
We have 14’ and 16’ fiberglass and aluminum boats with 10 h.p. motors and also some deluxe aluminum boat and motor packages which include a 15 or 20 h.p.4-stroke, electric start motor, live well, lights, fish finder, padded seats with back rests, storage, and vinyl floor.

With our boat rentals, we supply the new safety equipment required by recent changes by the Canadian Coast Guard. Life jackets (standard size) are provided with boat rentals; however, if you have your own personal life vest or require a special size for youth or xx size, we encourage you to bring them with you.
