While disconnected from the Great Lakes, Lake Nipissing is truly the gateway to Ontario’s real North and a “Great Lake” in its own right. And even though it is road accessible, has several lakefront residential areas and the city of North Bay on its shoreline, Nipissing still offers some of Northern Ontario’s very best multi-species fishing. With outstanding fishing for walleyes, world-class muskies, trophy northern pike, jumbo yellow perch, smallmouth and largemouth bass, whitefish, burbot and herring, only Lake of the Woods rivals Lake Nipissing in quality, quantity and diversity. With year-round accessibility, the West Arm, the French River, fantastic ice fishing, and so much more, Lake Nipissing is assuredly a world-class angling destination.
No matter what type of fishing or accommodations package interests you, it’s available at Lake Nipissing – AP fishing lodges, HK cottage resorts, campgrounds, marinas, ice huts – all offering comparatively inexpensive fishing packages. The most popular accesses, camps and services are located around Callander Bay, Nipissing Beach, South Bay, Sturgeon Falls / West Nipissing, and the West Arm / French River region.
