At the time of the construction of the paper mill in Kapuskasing, in the early 1900's, the Opasatika River was used as a mode of transportation for the wood. Many lumbermen from the Maritimes and as far away as Switzerland and Germany sought prosperity in Opasatika. Nowadays, the river, in addition to its scenic beauty, has earned a reputation as a fisherman's paradise.
