Provincial park in southeastern Ontario has multi-species fishing and impressive amenities
The lake was excellent for self-propelled anglers (and motorboats too, of course)
With its many islands, bays and channels, Charleston proved quite welcoming to paddlers, which was our approach to fishing and exploring. All the nooks and crannies mean there’s always a place to get out of the wind, plus tons of fish-holding structure. Above are Outdoor Canada managing editor Bob Sexton (left) and the spectacularly bearded Zsolt Cseh, who fished from a canoe. And rounding out our fishing foursome were kayak anglers Wes Nelson (a victim of previous Outdoor Canada adventures) and yours truly. Though a word to those in motorboats: there are a LOT of barely submerged reefs and rocks, so watch your lower unit.
