Lake Nipissing West Arm / French River

Chaudière Lodge

Lake Nipissing is truly a “Great Lake” by any measure, but the “West Arm” and the outflowing French River merit special mention. Is there another Northern Ontario fishery better known, more highly regarded, more steeped in history, with better fishing than the French River ? Don’t think so ! And Lake Nipissing’s West Arm offers everything that the big lake does albeit on a smaller scale but with the same exceptional mutli-species fishing.

Accordingly, the West Arm and the upper stretch of the French River are home to a number of historic lodges and numerous fishing camps that cater primarily to anglers coming here in hopes of catching a world-class musky, a trophy northern pike, a stringer of walleye, some topwater bass, enjoying a shore lunch or just spending time in the boat with fishing buddies or family.
