Fishing on Lake of the Woods
Sabaskong Bay, Ontario Canada
Lake of the Woods and surrounding lakes provide excellent angling for seven species of fish: Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Muskie, Crappie, Jumbo Yellow Perch and Lake Trout.
One of our most sought-after and popular fish, quite abundant in Sabaskong Bay, but can be elusive during cold front periods. Sought after for their excellent eating qualities, especially fresh filleted and served at our popular shore lunches. Our guests experience several nice catches in the 1.5 lb. To 4 lb.
Range, trophy fish 6 to 10 lbs. are caught quite frequently and we highly promote catch and release of these larger fish.
Northern Pike fishing.....
Known for its savage striking and fighting, plus good eating with its Y bones removed, Pike are quite abundant in shallow water during spring and fall months.
Range, with trophies up to 45 inch plus caught each season, again which we promote to catch and release.
Early season surface fishing with top water baits and fly fishing is quite exciting and popular with our guests.
Smallmouth Bass fishing.....Great fishing on our local rocky shorelines and sand bars, very scrappy fighters and aggressive jumps. Great on topwater plugs and a lot of new interest in fly fishing. Bass in the 1 to 3 lb. range, several trophies in the 4 and 5 lb. category, which we promote catch and release.
Fly-in trips to Twin Lakes provide outstanding catches in both numbers caught and trophies. Bass to 7 lbs. Have been C & R in both lakes.
"The Tiger of the North" Lake of the Woods, Sabaskong Bay is world renowned for its structure and weed beds, plus an excellent Muskie population that provides trophy Muskie fishing and sightings that our Muskie hunters return year after year to pursue.
Numerous 45 to 48 inch fish are caught each season, with trophies up to 54 inches have been caught and released by our guests, a number of 50 inch plus fish have been landed within sight of our lodge and 60 inch plus have been sighted. Exciting!
We also fish Crow Lake and Twin Lakes, for excellent Muskie fishing. Your trophy is here, all you have to do is catch it!
Excellent shallow-water, early-season fishing close to camp and off our docks at times, great fall fishing, deep-water jigging within 3 miles of the camp.
Abundant fish in the 10 to 15 inch range, which provide excellent fillets and eating.
Our guests return each May and late September for the Crappie run.
Lake Trout fishing.....
We fish the deep, clear waters of Crow Lake and Whitefish Bay, within 3 miles of the camp, for Lake Trout. Good catches in the 3 to 8 lb. range with fish up to 16 to 18 lb. are caught. Fished shallow till mid June, then deep jigged and trolled in 70 to 90 feet of water 'til late September. Provides an excellent day-trip experience with a guide.
