Fishing at Lake Nipissing

Lake Nispissing is know for its fantastic fishing experience, any time of the year! With a short boat ride you'll be able to catch some bass, walleye, muskies and some pike! When you stay at Nipissing Cottage Rental you're just a boat ride away from your fishing adventure. 

Type of Fish

Due to the shallow and nutrient rich waters of Lake Nipissing, fish are abundant here - so your chances of a catch at much greater! However, its good to know the types of fish that this beautiful lake has to optimize your chances.

  • Walleye/Pickerel - These fish are most active in low light conditions, so, fishing at dawn or dusk is recommended. Live bait and bright blades improve effectiveness of the catch!

  • Northern Pike - There is an abundance of Pike in Lake Nipissing. Fishing in late fall with bait that resembles perch, small bass or herring greatly increases your chances of a catch as these fish feed heavily at that time. You can find small Pike in shallower areas and larger ones tend to be in deeper waters.

  • Smallmouth Bass - Like the Pike, these fish are also plentiful. Since the lake has a lot of shoals, this is an excellent area to fish for these. Bass are a school fish, so if you catch one, its likely there are more around!

  • Muskellunge - A.k.a Muskie. These fish have similar feeding grounds to Pike and similar fishing techniques can be used.
