THE FISHING ISLANDS

ARE LOCATED AT THE SOUTH WEST END OF THE BEAUTIFUL
BRUCE PENINSULA IN OLIPHANT, ONTARIO, CANADA

The Fishing Islands are an archipegalo 70+ dolomite islands in Lake Huron located within a few kilometres of the low-lying flat shores of the Bruce Peninsula. Originally known as the Ghegheto Islands, a form of an Ojibway word meaning “plenty of fish,” the islands have also been known as the Fishing Islands, the Saugeen Islands and the Oliphant Islands.
The Fishing Islands run along a section of Lake Huron’s shoreline known as the “Huron Fringe.” It is a popular summer playground characterized by sand beaches and warm, clear waters. Shoreline fens, a category of wetlands, provide unique habitat for rare orchids and unique wildlife.
The Fishing Islands provide unparalleled natural beauty. Their rocky formations contain numerous bird nesting colonies and a number of shipwrecks are testament to the area’s rich history. The shelter they provide from the westerly winds of Lake Huron make them a popular destination of paddlers looking for a safe routes.
