Fishing Rainy Lake

Fishing Rainy Lake Ontario for Smallmouth Bass

Northwest Ontario's Rainy Lake is well-known for it's great smallmouth bass fishing as well as northern pike, crappie, and walleye. Located only 25 miles from the border with Minnesota, our camp, combined with Rainy Lakes' clean clear waters, have become the avid fishermen's dream location. Sports Afield magazine rated Rainy Lake among the top 4 lakes in North America for catching trophy-size Smallmouth Bass.

Catch Fishermen's Fever

Smallmouth Bass fishermen love our neck of the woods. We have a world-class fishery for bronze backs in our lakes so be prepared for some fast-action angling. Not to be ignored are the Northern Pike cruising the reefs and weed lines. These guys are fighting machines. Come and do battle with one of these wily warriors. The sense of triumph in landing a monster pike needs to be experienced to be understood. Many fishing fanatics rekindled the fever while landing themselves a trophy pike. Every year many 30 to 45 inchers are caught.

September and October are our crappie months. Late fall jigging in clouds of crappie will ensure a tasty meal. Many slab 2 lb. plus crappie are caught this time of year.

For incredible bronze back action try a fall trip. It may be cool but the fishing is hot! As the water cools down the smallmouth move up onto the reefs and stack up one on top of another. The fish all go on the feed. Rainy Lake's north arm is full of smelts. This baitfish puts shoulders on these bass. It is truly hard to say which is better: the size of the fish or the shear numbers caught at this time of year.

At Camp Narrows Lodge, to ensure that we sustain our world-class fishery, we have a catch-and-release policy for our smallmouth bass. Rainy Lake also has slot-sizes to protect our trophy pike and walleye. For meals or shorelunches we encourage our fishermen to eat small walleye, pike, or those tasty crappies. The larger fish, which are usually female, must be thrown back. With these policies Rainy Lake will not only sustain its world-class fishery but it will get even better for future fishermen like yourself.
