Fishing Lake Nipissing in Ontario

Lake Nipissing

Lake Nipissing is a lake in the Canadian province of Ontario. Excluding the Great Lakes, Lake Nipissing is the fifth-largest lake in Ontario. It is relatively shallow for a large lake, with an average depth of only 4.5 m (14.8 ft). The shallowness of the lake makes for many sandbars along the lake's irregular coastline. The lake has many islands.

The largest population centre on the lake's shoreline is the city of North Bay. North Bay sits along the lake's northeastern shoreline. Other towns are Callander (south of North Bay along Highway 11). The larger towns toward the western end of the lake are Sturgeon Falls, Garden Village, Cache Bay and Lavigne.

The lake contains over 40 different species of fish. Numerous sport fishing lodges dot the main shoreline or can be found on several of Nipissing's many islands. Most anglers target walleye, smallmouth bass, muskie, and northern pike. For various reasons, largely social, numerous stocking associations are engaged in attempts to artificially manipulate the lake's walleye population. Lake_Nipissing

Fishing In Ontario

by Robin Shortt

Fishing in Ontario is one of the most beautiful places in the world to plan a fishing trip. I know, I've fished in many areas of Ontario and know what I'm saying. Many thousands of lakes in Northern Ontario have not seen a fishermen's bait cast to them. There are many species of fish throughout Ontario.

If you plan on traveling through and fishing in Ontario there are some things you need to consider before your trip.

You should realize that the costs associated with a trip there is expensive, the Province itself is huge and could cost a lot for travel expenses, accommodation, clothing, licenses and permits, fishing gear, food, water, matches and many other things you'll need.

Its a good idea to make a list of all the things you will need to take on your trip. If you know where your going its a good idea to get some topo maps of the area. Maps of Ontario will come in handy as well.

Some of the fish species you many encounter are:

Northern pike, Largemouth bass, Channel catfish, Smallmouth bass, Muskellunge, Walleye, trout, salmon, whitefish and many non game fish as well.

Regulations While Fishing Canadians purchase a fishing version of an Outdoors Card with a validation tag on it.

Non-residents of Ontario need a basic license which is signed and has a validation tag attached.

These cards cannot be transferred to anyone else. You must carry them all the time in case a Conservation Officer requests to check it.

Conservation Officers and Their Duties

These officers have the right to arrest, seize items, and view and perform searches whenever they see fit.

Just remember to obtain and obey all fishing regulations while fishing in Ontario.
