World class fishing can be found at the very top of the great lakes in every season.
The Nipigon area is packed full of lakes and rivers that are stuffed with fish of all types. Anglers can go after walleye in Elizabeth and Frazer Lakes, or burbot in Jessie Lake. For every lake listed here, there are dozens more. World and Provincial records are held in this region, too. Your record could be next! Smallmouth bass, lake trout, walleye and pike are waiting. Visit any of our partners to get set up or to hang your hat at the end of a successful fishing trip!
