Fishing on Wenasaga Lake

The primary fish on Wenasaga Lake are Walleye and Northern Pike. The lake offers about 34 miles of rugged shoreline, a waterfall and a short river. Lake Wenasaga is a Walleye spawning lake, so the fish population here is quite large. The waterfall is where the Walleye fishery begins, and the lake drains by a series of rapids. The turbulent water around both the waterfall and the spill zones provides oxygen rich habitat for aquatic insects that in turn feed the fish. This is one of the reasons that the Walleye here are large, and with such a large population of Walleye, the Northern Pike grow monstrous too.

What to Expect Fishing Wise

The lake is such a haven for fishing that guides are not needed. The lodge provides maps of the lake with the best fishing spots marked so that fishermen have no problem finding the perfect fishing hole. You are provided a boat and motor, and the lodge focuses on providing the best equipment for your adventure. The surrounding area is full of lakes, and the lodge has boats moored at various lakes so that you can access remote fisheries that offer Walleye, Northern Pike and Lake Trout. Guests fish from 16 foot Lund boats that are powered by 15 HP motors. You enjoy the comfort of swivel pedestal seats, and the gas and minnows are free. You MUST bring your own life Jacket, tackle, and gear for fishing. Boats come equipped with landing nets, and bait buckets.

Overall, expect to be taken care of here at Wenasaga Lodge. In addition to fishing, the lodge offers bear hunting trips and fly-in fishing trips. Fly-in fishing occurs at Jubilee Lake and Slate Lake and features lakefront well-equipped cabins.

  • Just returned from my 7th stay at Wenasaga Lodge after missing out last year because of the pandemic. On every single trip we have had exceptional walleye fishing that I've never experienced anywhere else on my Canadian trips. Very nice cabin accommodations and great hosts make for a perfect booking.
