Ontario Fishing



Ice fishing on Lake Nipissing is a very popular vacation idea during the long winter months! Lake Nipissing is a great lake in Ontario where ice fishing is enjoyable for the thousands of locals and tourists that come ice fishing every year. This lake has an extremely active winter fishery, and it is frequently considered to be one of the best ice fishing lakes in Ontario.

With more than 2,000 huts covering lake Nipissing, it is small wonder that some people mistake it for a small city. Small huts all the way up to "bungalows on ice" can be found all over the lake, and many visitiors spend their weekends and WEEKS, out on the ice catching fish. These huts come complete with stoves, ,bunks, and all have most of the comforts of home within.

There are plenty of ice hut and bunglaow operators in the area, and every one provides great service to keep the ice fisherman happy and content. Operators can provide you with everything from fishing licenses, angling equipment and bait, even bringing you to the best spots the lake has to offer.

Some of the fish that are targeted while ice fishing are walleye, perch, pike and whitefish. Each species has its own challenges, and excellent tips can be always gotten from ice hut operators and experienced locals. One thing is for sure - nothing tastes better on a  winter day than a feed of walleye in a crispy batter.

Take some time out this winter to discover the joys that Lake Nipissing can bring.  The experience will be one you cherish for years to come.  If your looking for ice fishing information from numerous outfitters click here to fill out our form.
