    Ottawa river canada advice

    Hey folks located on the Ottawa river Ontario side near a town called Arnprior. Its a reservoir about 28 miles long, ranging from 3 miles wide to areas narrower
    Three rivers feed this section the Madawaska the Bonnechere and the Little mississipi. Located about 45 minutes northwest from Ottawa
    Good musky pike bass walleye and catfish population.

    I have caught 4-5 musky over the years, need some advice on mid summer musky tactics.

    Its stinking hot wave right now, trolling deep 30 plus feet as we have mooneye forage in the reservoir.

    Getting lots of follows, no takers yet.

    Any advice on reservoir musky

    Anyone in the area on the forum let me know as I would like to go for a fish and learn some stuff. Just getting deeper into musky.

    Just got back from the Mighty Ottawa. We fished just north of Arnprior near Renfrew where the Boncherre spills in. I landed a 40 Muskie on Thursday.

    mcbuck: You are trolling too deep. Also, look for weed beds in shallower water either in the mid river or shoreline areas and cast jerk bait and troll the edges with spinner baits. If weeds are in deeper water and not topped out, troll your spinner baits right thru the weeds. Good luck...
