Conveniently located just 35 miles from the US Pigeon River Border Crossing, Whitefish Lake is an angler’s haven. Don’t let the name fool you, Whitefish Lake is known for its abundant population of various fish species. Especially smallmouth bass fishing! Spanning 11.7sqm and ranging in depths from 5ft to 22ft, the lake has attracted anglers from all over the world to experience premium Northern Ontario fishing.

The majority of Superior Country lakes are known for the deep depths and cold water; however, Whitefish Lake is opposite. Most of the lake ranges from depths of 5-10 feet, making it a primal habitat for bass. Weed beds around the perimeter stretch out into the shallow areas providing preferable habitat and feeding grounds for the sought-after species. It’s no wonder Whitefish Lake draws such attention for bass fishing.


James Linder and Jake Wallace with Linder’s Angling Edge took to Superior Country’s Whitefish Lake on a multi-species endeavor. With no surprise, they were left impressed with the action they saw! They express their admiration for the lakes ability to inhabit such a large population of smallmouth bass. “The quality of the bass in this lake is really incredible!”.  James goes on to explain the benefit of Whitefish Lake in that the shallow waters encompassed throughout it creates a large “food shelf” area, making it perfect for reeling in one after another.

Along with supreme smallmouth bass fishing, Whitefish Lake is also home to an abundant population of walleye, northern pike, and jumbo perch. The lake is so sustainable in fish populations, it can maintain a 100 perch limit! One of the only few lakes in Northern Ontario able to do so! The walleye caught in this lake maintain 29-30 inches in length with girthy bodies. If anglers don’t return for the bass, they’ll surely return for the trophy sized walleye.
