Are you ready for the experience of a lifetime?

Time on the Water was created with one goal in mind: to thank our Military (Active, Reserve, National Guard, Veteran), Firefighters, Law Enforcement, health care professionals, teachers, and EMT/EMS for their sacrifice by providing an all-expenses-paid five-day fishing trip to Lake of the Woods near Sioux Narrows, Ontario. We also schedule several, local day fishing trips in the Midwest. If you know someone that has served their country that would love a fishing trip, or if you would like to sponsor a veteran, please contact us right away!

Don't want to attend, but want to help out? We accept donations!

Donate to Time on the Water

Time On The Water is a non-profit organization that brings fishing back into the lives of veterans, military personnel, firefighters, law enforcement, health care professionals, EMTs/EMS, teachers, and other admirable men and women. We love thanking those who have served by bringing them on fishing trips to Canada and the Midwestern U.S. Time On The Water supplies transportation, all of the fishing gear, licenses, bait, tackle, meals, lodging, fuel and boats for every brave man and women we take fishing. It’s our goal to plan everything to make these fishing trips easy, memorable, and a fun time for those who have served. 100% of all donations go directly to the costs associated with each fishing trip.
