The youngest of anglers can enjoy bringing in sweet tasting perch or colourful sunfish. Other species include bullheads and catfish, ling, cisco, garpike, herring, lake white fish, yellow perch, speckled, brook, lake and rainbow trout, carp, drum suckers and sheepshead.
The local bass families include rock, white, silver, small and largemouth. And one can’t forget to mention the highly sought after pickerel (or walleye to our American friends) and mighty muskellunge.
West Nipissing also enjoys an extremely active winter fishery, with Lake Nipissing considered to be the finest ice fishing lake in Ontario by many experienced anglers. Roads and snowmobile trails line the surface of area lakes, with ice huts rentals available from several local lodge and resorts.
