For late afternoon fishing, ask the Captain where are the best secret fishing spots between Parliament and the down river Islands. Anchor in the shallow waters of the surrounding bays and nearby islands. There; Bass, Pike, Perch, Drum, Cat and other fish varieties are yours for the catching! Bring your favorite fishing gear or use the rods and lures available on board. Take the dinghy to shore for some shallow rock and weed fishing. Don't forget to bring your fishing license. Depending on the hour, BBQ on board or return to the Ottawa NCC public dock with your catch before sunset .
