public beach is one of the best kept secrets on the north shore of Lake
Erie. Just a mere 500 meters from our farmhouse, enjoy the sun and
sands, get a great tan or just relax! It's all good!
Fishing and boating: The best of Ontario’s South Coast and Grand River Country can be found out on the water. Lake Erie and the Grand River offer fantastic locations for boating and watersports of all types.
Grand River, from the dam in Caledonia to the mouth at Port Maitland,
is home to a variety of fish. Your catch could include: Bass, Pickerel, Pike, Trout, and Catfish,
just to mention a few. It can be as easy as live bait & hook, lure
and even fly fishing. The spring, summer and fall host some of the best
fishing around, with Trout, Salmon & Pickerel running from Lake
Erie, and plenty of Bass & Channel Cat and resident Pickerel making
the Grand River a good spot throughout the year.
Lake Erie is
the shallowest and warmest of the Great Lakes. It is also the most
biologically productive and has the greatest diversity of fish species.
More than 130 species from at least 24 different families range
throughout its wide variety of habitats.
Many species reach their
greatest abundance here, providing one of the world’s largest
freshwater fisheries and more fish protein than all the other Great
