North Grenville

Gone Fishin’

Home to the mighty musky

North Grenville has some of the best fishing spots in all of eastern Ontario. Nestled between the Rideau River and the South Branch of the Rideau River, our location attracts area residents as well as fishing legends like Bob Izumi.

Before casting off, grab an early morning breakfast sandwich and a fresh cup of locally-roasted coffee at Brewed Awakenings. Then set off on your adventure at the free public boat launch at Curry Park. For a complete listing of launch points, please consult the North Grenville amenities map.

Traveling with your family and scared they’ll spook the fish? There’s plenty to do in North Grenville while you’re on the water! Whether they want to go shopping, explore our art scene or spend some time in the great outdoors, we’ve got your clan covered. Be sure to send the golfers in your life to the exquisite EQuinelle Golf Club or the historic Rideau Glen golf course.

You’ll have a lot to catch up on at the end of the day – as well as a serious hunger to tackle! Treat your family to a home-style dinner at the Kemptville Family Restaurant or visit the New Rideau Restaurant for a wholesome menu that has something for everyone.
