Lake Nipissing is known for its remoteness and its great variety of fish to choose from. The most common species of fish in this lake are, walleye, smallmouth bass, muskie, perch, pike and whitefish.
Lake Nipissing is one of the largest lakes in Ontario. Its name means "Big Water" in the Algonquin language. It clocks in at a massive 67km long and 26km wide. More than enough room to hide while ice fishing. It is also a very shallow lake for one that is so large, with an average depth of only 5 meters. There are several ice hut operators on this lake with all the services that you could possibly need. Services such as bait, and gear for sale, and what ever else you might need while on the ice.
The main towns around the lake are Nipissing, North Bay and Sturgeon Falls. The city of Sudbury is just an hour down the road to the west if you need to go to, or from there. Lake Nipissing is only a scant four hour drive north of Toronto if you need to come through there on your way to this great ice fishing destination.
This remote lake is one of the best locations in Ontario for ice fishing so if I see you there, be sure to say hello.
