Such angling hubs as Killarney, Lake Nipissing, Lake Temiskaming and Lake Temagami are just a few of the amazing angling opportunities in this region. Diverse species and countless opportunities for five star angling lodges to cozy cottage rentals are readily available. The choice of experience and species are yours. It’s time to immerse yourself in the North East.
