Re: CHARLESTON LAKE - ONTARIO CANADA

Rule of thumb...in Canada if you can drive to it(with few exceptions) it has probably seen it's better day. Quebec has many private lodges, many are fished out, one recomendation is Stramond Lake Lodge but it is not the lake it was when Madeliene and Austin Gagnon had it.

Re: CHARLESTON LAKE - ONTARIO CANADA

never been there but have been to lakes like that in that area. the fishing will be better than what you'll get in PA but no where near as good as it gets type fishing in other areas of canada. if cheap is what you're looking for then that's what is available, if really good fishing is what you want, you'll have to pay for it and drive a lot further to get it. so just ask yourself what is it i want, good fishing like a really good day in PA or great fishing, something i'll remember for a life time. 1 is easier to get than the other and priced accordingly. my self, i'd rather put in the extra effort and get great because i've had both and if i'm going to travel that much, i'd prefer great.

Re: CHARLESTON LAKE - ONTARIO CANADA

My parents and grandparents went there back in the 40s!! We usually go to Quebec bewtween Maniwaki and Louvicourt in the northern end of the park. On a good trip we may get acouple pike 40" or better but mainly go for walleyes. Believe it or not alot of the lakes close to the border that were pretty much fished out are coming back alittle. It is the fault of the people that complain about no big fish but will keep a pike 15-20" long! Also, more people target smallmouths now and only catch pike by accident.
