Williams Outfitters is a Native owned and operated outfitting company that is located on the Curve Lake First Nation in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes Region of Ontario, Canada. Michael Williams, the company owner and lead guide, is an Ojibwe Indian that has had the privilege of learning both traditional and contemporary methods of fishing the area. Historically, many residents of Curve Lake earned money by guiding US anglers, by canoe, to trophy catches throughout the region. Michael’s goal is to revive the art of the “Native Guide” and has led him to develop adventure experiences for visitors to Peterborough and the Kawarthas. Michael promises a comfortable fishing adventure that targets a variety of species as well as passing on his traditional knowledge and fishing secrets of the area. Michael Williams is looking forward to hosting you to a great day on the water.


Williams Outfitters is dedicated to providing our clients with the ultimate guided fishing experience. In our effort to achieve service excellence, our guides will work safely and diligently to target fish and to entice strikes.


Mike Williams - Professional Tournament Angler


Obviously I love fishing. My common law wife Susan and I are the proud parents of a beautiful daughter Mikayla. I enjoy all sports especially hockey. When I am not fishing chances are you will find me hunting or just enjoying the outdoors. 

Growing up in the area has given me the opportunity to gain a great deal of valuable fishing experience. Sharing this knowledge with you I promise a day on the Kawartha Lakes that you won’t forget.  Although I can’t guarantee you a catch, I can guarantee that your adventure will leave you with a smile on your face and lasting images of the Kawartha Lakes. I look forward to sharing an exciting day of fishing with you.


I have been a professional tournament fisher since 1995 and guiding since 1996.  During the fishing season, and when I’m not guiding, I compete in regional bass fishing tournaments such as: Top Bass Fishing Series, Canadian Fishing Tour, Bassmania, and the Bass Champions Tour.  I also support local fundraising fishing tournaments such as the annual Curve Lake Old Timers, Stoney Lake, and Emerald Isle Fishing Tournaments.  In addition to this, I organize and manage our community’s hockey team fundraising event titled “The Last Cast for the Big Bass.”  This is officially the last tournament of the season in our area.


Williams Outfitters is committed to the betterment of our environment and is dedicated to ensuring that every adventure with our organization leaves no lasting effect to the world in which we live.


We are located on the Curve Lake First, approximately one half hour north of Peterborough, Ontario. For directions to our primary launch site in Curve Lake please click here.
