Esquif produces several canoes for fishing. I have the largest, the Cargo. It is, by far, the easiest canoe to stand that I've ever used. I used to have a Coleman Scanoe that was also easy to stand and fish in. For other than rivers - big old Grummans will get the job done.
The Scanoe has more initial stability, but the Esquif is better and smoother and more predictable in every way. It's heavy, so I added oarlocks to row it when solo or 'guiding' a friend. I had one friend stand and fish from the bow while I rowed upstream and then back down, including through a small riffle.
