SPECIES: CATCH THE FIVE MAJOR SPORT FISH

Although Canada’s Eagle Lake boasts a wide range of fish species, it’s a popular destination for sport fishermen due to its diverse population of the five major sport fish: muskies, walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike and lake trout. Anglers from Canada, the U.S. and even Europe flock to Eagle Lake for its record-worthy trophy fishing potential.

Why are Eagle Lake’s fish so big? A diverse and dynamic range of habitats, an abundant forage base, and conservation and protection measures – including a 54” minimum size for muskie and slot limits on other species for over 25 years – have helped Eagle’s native species thrive. Today, 40”+ northern pike are not uncommon, 30”+ walleyes are boated regularly, and once-in-a-lifetime 40-to-60 pound muskie are waiting to be caught.

Muskies: Thanks to Eagle Lake’s buffet of whitefish, suckers, cisco and trout, providing ample forage, and the population’s superior genetics, Eagle’s muskies are massive. Consistently, Eagle Lake ranks as a top muskie fishing destination in Canada – and even the world. When the season opens in early June, muskies tend to hang out in shallow weed beds and spawning flats, but by late summer and into fall, they’re more commonly found around steep banks, island clusters and rock reefs. Muskies 45”- 55” are not uncommon catches on Eagle Lake.

Walleye: If you’re looking for walleye fishing, Eagle Lake is your destination. Conservation measures have made Eagle Lake one of the top 10 walleye fisheries in Ontario. Eating-size walleye are caught with ease; that’s why walleye is a popular choice for shore lunches and fish fries at the lodge. On good days, anglers might catch 50-100 or more walleye, the fishing is that good. With a slot limit of 18-23” there are also plenty of trophy walleye on Eagle, and guests regularly boat trophy fish of 26-32”. In spring, walleye spawn near the shoreline and inlets, and go out to main lake reefs as the water warms. From season opener in early May to late fall, Eagle Lake fishermen have no problem finding a nice catch of walleye.

Northern Pike: Northern pike are known for their aggressiveness, striking with reckless abandon. That’s why many love pike fishing on Eagle Lake – beginners and seasoned fishermen alike can boat northern pike. For 20+ years, a slot limit has been in place, and as a result, trophy pike of 20+ pounds, measuring 42” are not uncommon here. Pike season opens in May. The species loves cooler waters; therefore, pike of all sizes are boated all season with spring and fall being the best seasons for trophy northern pike fishing. In spring, pike tend to hang out in Eagle’s bays to spawn, and they’re often found near spawning suckers and walleyes, favorite forage choices.

Smallmouth Bass: Smallmouth bass have a reputation: Pound-for-pound, they’re the hardest fighting fish on Eagle Lake. The good news is they’re abundant here with the population currently exploding. A catch-and-release policy is in place until July to protect smallmouth during spawning season. As a result, Eagle Lake boasts some of the largest average smallmouth sizes in Canada. A popular smallmouth spawning site is Myer’s Bay – a stone’s throw from the lodge – and by late summer, smallmouth tend move to rocky shorelines and deep drop-offs. Smallmouth weighing 3-5 pounds are common, and 6-7 pound bass are waiting to be caught.

Lake Trout: Eagle Lake is a popular destination for lake trout fishing, and Andy Myer’s Lodge is situated in just the right place. Located near cold water fishing in the Western Arm and Portage Bay, the lodge is close to prime lake trout habitat in mid-to-late summer. Before the water warms, though, Eagle’s lake trout are dispersed more evenly across the lake, especially in the northern half. Anglers consistently catch lake trout weighing 10-20 pounds, and 30+ pounders aren’t out of the question.

Ice Fishing: In winter, Eagle Lake transforms into an ice fishing mecca. Walleye, northern pike, lake trout, crappies, whitefish and burbot bite with regularity. Plus, you’ll be able to trade in the boat and explore Eagle’s acreage via snowmobile or ATV. During this time of year, deer, moose and wolf sightings are not uncommon, as well.
