Rainy Lake’s smallmouth bass is some of the best in Northern Ontario, if not North America. The structure of the north arm of Rainy Lake is ideal bass habitat. Smallmouth bass fishing on Rainy Lake is truly an avid fisherman’s outdoor adventure. There are hundreds of islands with baseball to basketball sized boulder shoals and reefs coming off of them. Large areas of cabbage and pencil weed along side these shoals and reefs create unbeatable habitat. Crayfish, bait fish of all kinds, and especially smelts are the main forage.

Spring fishing (pre-spawn) in May and early June is done off of any point or reef with some sandier areas in behind. The smallmouth bass congregate in water around 14′-18′ deep, waiting for the water temperature to warm up. This is the time when tube jigs and grubs work the best. Plastics can also be thrown to the shores.

During the summer months, the fish are found in many areas of the lake. Some school up and chase the smelts in the deep water’s away from the structure. Other’s can be found in the huge cabbage beds in shallower water. Depending on the weather of the day and evening, top water bites are awesome. Windier days weightless plastics or weighted tubes or grubs can be thrown towards the points or banks.

Fall fishing, probably the best of the year, is done on the sunken humps. This is when Rainy Lake fishing really begins to shine. The smallmouth school up in the hundreds. This is also the time of year when you really know what “fish eating smelts” is all about. The belly’s on the fish are unbelievable.
