The Ottawa River Musky Factory
Guide services for the musky trip of your life, accommodations, and hospitality.
The Ottawa River Musky Factory facilities are located on one of the most exciting and productive stretches of musky water anywhere in the world. We are halfway between Ottawa and Montreal in the Prescott-Russell region.
Less than 30 minutes in either direction of the Factory are many world class musky spots, both trolling and casting, that annually produces dozens of fat 50+ inch muskies. Jim Saric (Musky Hunter magazine and television) called this section of the Ottawa River ‘The last bastion of pure musky fishing left in the world‘!
For true trophy hunts we recommend bookings of 3 days or more but we offer single and half day outings as well. We caught fish over 48 inches every 2.6 days in 2014 and boated muskies on over 80% of our charters. We again boated fish on over 80% of our outings in 2015. Weekdays offer less boat traffic on the river and are recommended if you have the option. Ottawa River waters have very little pressure in general.
We have 3 top guides on staff including Jay Morrison to accommodate larger parties and multiple booking days. NO ONE has spent more time on the Ottawa River chasing muskies than your host, it’s not even close.
Another aspect of our services is teaching. Whether you are brand new to the sport or a veteran who wants to learn the latest tricks, tips, and behaviours of muskellunge, we can help. Learning to use the equipment the right way not only makes for better casting, it keeps your body in top shape. Teaching anglers the best handling and release practices based on the latest available science and understanding how to read the signs of stress in muskies is also very important to us.
While you hunt your trophy you will be guided in a spacious Mercury powered Crestliner Raptor and fish with only the best Loomis and Shimano Rods and a complete line of Shimano reels spooled with PowerPro line
