Kawartha Lakes Fishing
Fishing in the Kawartha Lakes

we are no experts.

On Pigeon Lake by Nichols Cove we could fish for "Panfish", Perch, Sunfish, Rockbass and Crappie. Now you need a licence to fish, click here for more details.

The lakes in the Kawarthas have some of the best warm water fishing in southern Ontario. Click here to view the selection of fish in the Kawartha Lakes that Mark from Mark's Worm Warehouse in Bobcaygeon gave us to show you.

Kawartha lakes fishing is renowned for yellow pickerel, muskie, smallmouth and largemouth bass. In addition, they support large populations of panfish such as rock bass, yellow perch, sunfish and bullheads. One of the biggest fishing draws here to the Kawarthas is the walleye.

Generally, fishing in the Kawarthas tend to be rather crowded at certain times of the year especially in the spring so book your motel, cottage, B&B, camp site early. Or you can always find someone willing to let you crash at their place.
