My brother and I and some friends decided to go a bit farther north to try our luck on the Ottawa River, The third week of July, we will be at KO Lodge. Has anyone been here? Any advice on the river? Do we need a guide or can we do it ourselves? We will be 200 miles up river from Ottawa....in the four river area...Anyone?

I have'nt fished that stetch for Muskie, just for walleye, thick with those. I'm sure there are some Muskie in that area. A lot of current in that section of the river and it is very much river fishing.

We usually fish the lower sections of the river. Below Ottawa and just above in the Arnprior area. It is much more like a big lake in those parts.

Don't know of anyone in that area, you might try Osprey Charters out of Ottawa, he might know of someone targeting that area for Muskie.
You can find him on www.ontariofishcharters.ca

If you can't find local knowledge read up on current muskie's.

Good Luck
