Fort Frances is a border town where you either come into Ontario from the U.S. or leave the U.S. and enter into Fort Frances. Most people that come over the border will keep on going, however, for some of them, they have realized that the fishing is good on nearby Rainy Lake and the Rainy River. There are plenty of places to eat or shop at here, but you won’t find many fishing resorts just over the border. Don’t let that fool you though. There is some very good fishing very close by.
