Virtual North claims there are nearly 100,000 bodies of water in Ontario. The massive amount of fresh water in the area resulted from the existence of glaciers over ten thousand years ago. The large masses of ice shaped the landscape, carving through rock, and left behind lakes and streams as they melted.
Fish species in the area include bass, trout, muskie, northern pike and walleye. The website lists over 900 lakes and many lodges, outposts and recreational areas.
