Fishing with Hidden River Lodge

The Walleye and Northern Pike are what attract many of the fishermen to Whitefish Lake. Once here, they discover the bounty and thrill of fishing for various species of Trout, Whitefish, and of course Smallmouth Bass.

The beginning of May until end of June is the best time to fish for Walleye as the water warms and the fish make their way towards the shallows to spawn and bask. Expect Walleye from 17-19 inches as common fish with a few opportunities to tackle a 30-32 inch Walleye. This lake is also home to Blue Walleye, which are rare in Ontario.

For those of you who love Northern Pike, May- mid-July is the best time to target these predators. Expect fish in the 24-30 inch range to be common with trophies in the 30-40 inch range.

Brook Trout range in the 16-18 inch range and can weigh upwards of nine pounds. The best Brook Trout fishing are with the guides who know where al lot the secret lakes are.

For Smallmouth Bass the best time is from May through the end of June when the season closes. Expect plenty of bass in the 2.5-4.5 range. Limit is six with a sports license or two with a conservation license.

For Whitefish, the best time is from mid-July through the end of September. These are best fished with a jig, and the limit is 25.

As you can see, there is plenty of fishing here on Whitefish Lake. Expect clean and comfortable cabins and friendly staff.
