According to customer reviews, Myles Ahead Sportfishing, Phantom Sportfishing, and Taymo Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Durham Region. Full list of top fishing charters in Durham Region.

Myles Ahead Sportfishing, Phantom Sportfishing, and Taymo Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Durham Region.

The most popular fish species you can target are Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Rainbow Trout (Steelhead). Top fishing techniques include trolling, heavy tackle, and light tackle. Lake fishing, nearshore fishing, and offshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

If you're in the Toronto area and want to try your angling luck off the beaten path, why not go fishing in Durham? This region offers equally good fishing opportunities as the provincial capital, only without the crowds. Add to that easy access to several excellent waterways like Lake Simco and Lake Scugog, and you’ve got a winning combo.
 
The ever-productive Lake Ontario is the most popular fishing destination with its abundant supplies of Chinook, Coho, and Atlantic Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Pike, and Walleye. Trolling for any of these species will probably result in an action-packed day on the water. In case you prefer fishing from the shore, you can expect lots of Bass, Carp, and Catfish.
 
When you’re in the mood for a change, head to Lake Simcoe, where you can get your fill of Perch, Whitefish, Lake Trout, and Walleye. Ice fishing action is particularly good, and anglers from all over the region flock here in the winter months. If you decide to give Lake Scugog a try, you can expect good amounts of Bluegill, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, and Perch.
 
The good news is that wherever you go in the Durham region, there will probably be a professional guide to take you out. You’ll mostly find half day and full day expeditions, and some charters also offer shared trips, which are more affordable, but you’ll be sharing the boat with other people.
 
Some of the best locations to find a fishing charter include Whitby, Bowmanville, and Newcastle.
 

Rules & Regulations

Both resident and non-resident anglers need to have a fishing licence and an Outdoors Card before they start fishing. Bear in mind that you need to buy the Outdoors Card first, and then acquire the appropriate licence. If you plan on fishing for one day only, you don’t need an Outdoors Card, but you still need a special one-day fishing licence.

January
Don’t let the cold dissolve your fishing resolve! Grab your ice fishing gear and hit Lake Ontario for a variety of species, including Yellow Perch, Pike, Walleye, and more.
February
If you’re looking for a change of scenery but you’d still like to do enjoy ice fishing, head to Lake Simcoe for a fun fishing weekend. You can expect anything from Lake Trout and Walleye to good-sized Perch on the line.
March
The temperatures are slowly rising, but the ice is still there, so it’s a good idea to fish smaller bodies of water like Lake Scugog. There’s plenty of fish to target, and Perch, Crappie, and Walleye are at the top of the list.
April
April marks the return of Salmon and charters that target them. Hit Lake Ontario in the second half of the month, and you just might land some good Chinook and Coho.
May
Salmon fishing is still going strong, and anglers from all over are coming to Lake Ontario to hook their Salmon trophy. You can also target Lake, Rainbow, and Brown Trout in the lake’s shallows.
June
If you’d like to experience some of the best fishing in Durham, June is probably one of the most productive months. Whether it’s Walleye, Salmon, and Trout on Lake Ontario or Largemouth Bass on Lake Scugog, you’ll have a great time.
July
Look for Trout in deeper waters of Lake Ontario, or cast your line from the shore and see what will bite. Catfish, Bass, and Carp are all in the cards. Fly fishing for Trout is superb this time of year.
August
Spend some time on the water in August, you won’t regret it. Fish for Bass, Trout, and Walleye, and then, when you need a break, jump in the water and cool off. That way, you’ve got the best of both worlds!
September
Come September, and you can expect Coho and Chinook Salmon in great numbers in Lake Ontario. Anglers who are looking for a trophy love fishing this time of year, because there are some real lunkers swimming around.
October
It’s getting colder out there and the weather is getting more unpredictable, but that doesn’t stop passionate fishermen from going out on the water. Trout are biting, and so are Salmon, Bass, Walleye, Perch – basically, anything you’d like.
November
When temperatures drop in November, some charters are closed for the year, while others are getting ready for the upcoming ice fishing season. Walleye, Pike, Perch, and Bass are all there for the taking.
December
When temperatures drop in November, some charters are closed for the year, while others are getting ready for the upcoming ice fishing season. Walleye, Pike, Perch, and Bass are all there for the taking.

It was my first fishing charter, and I picked “Reel Knockoffs” because of the size of their boat - they were perfect for my two sons and I, with no hordes of strangers along. Matt and his dad worked hard to give us a good time, and each of my kids caught a fish. I’ve already recommended them to a buddy looking to do the same thing with his adult children. Great job!

Took my adult son on his first Charter Salmon fishing trip with Trolling Reel Deep Sportfishing. Captain Sergio and First mate Joe worked extremely hard for our evening trip. Beautiful evening, even more spectacular sunset over Oakville. Fishing was slow with only one small salmon caught (released). Depth, speed, spoons were all changed and every effort was put into catching fish. Can't thank them both enough for attempting to have this trip be a success!! Will certainly be back!!

Had a great time out on the Lake, learned a lot about salmon fishing, and had a few fun bites - including the really big one that got away (which every fishing trip needs!). There was zero stress and all the hard work was done by Franky! I would definitely recommend this and I plan to go again!

Great time. Very relaxing and enjoyable time. My kids and I enjoyed the conversation with both Cameron and his friend Carlos. We may have only caught two fish but it didn't matter. It was a beautiful day and couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommend it to anyone.

Frank took me and a few of my buddies out and it was phenomenal. Spent the day catching ginormous fish with the most pristine fishing equipment I’ve ever used. The boat was clean, had everything we needed, and was super comfortable. Captain Frank knows his stuff and I would highly recommend him to anybody.

Took my husband on a trip for his birthday and we had such an incredible time! Cameron is a great angler and guide. He was friendly, personable and has great knowledge of the sport. All things you want for a first time trip. We also managed to catch a nice sized salmon. All in all, a great experience and I would definitely go again with Eisses Outfitting!

We had a blast - great weather, great company, and the fish were biting. My father in law caught the biggest fish he ever has, his still grinning ear-to-ear 3 days later. Matt and his dad are so knowledgeable about the industry, about their tools, of the environment. They are truly passionate about fishing and shared so much with us. We can't wait to book again :) Thank you Captain Matt!

My family and I were lucky enough to book this amazing trip! Captain Frank made it fun and was very knowledgeable about both fishing and the lake we were on. It was a very nice boat and comfortable too. We caught some nice salmon and trout and lost a few too, but we had so much fun we want to make it an annual family trip! Thanks so much Captain Frank, we can't wait to see you again!

We were in town for my brothers celebrity golf tournament the joe carter classic and me and ex NFL player Neil Smith hooked up with captain Sergio for a afternoon trip! The fishing was slow but the captain was persistent on us catching fish , he worked longer to make sure our experience was good! We ended up catching some good fish late which made for a great day! I highly recommend captain Sergio for anyone that wants to have a great experience on the water while here in Toronto 💯🎣
