The name Lake Nipissing means "big water" in the Algonquin language. Lake Nipissing is the fifth-largest lake in Ontario, excluding the great lakes and covers 873 square km. Located in Ontario's Near North 50 km northeast of Georgian Bay, the lake runs in an east-west direction to a length of 80 km. It is relatively shallow (about 30 ft in most places) and is consequently well aerated, which leads to an abundance of healthy plant and fish life. Dozens of rivers and streams drain into Lake Nipissing, the largest being the Sturgeon River, Wasi River and South River. The French River, which outlets from its southwest end, drains into Georgian Bay. Lake Nipissing has many islands with numerous sport fishing lodges and resorts dotting the main shoreline, they can also be found on several of Nipissing's many islands.

Lake Nipissing contains over 40 different species of fish. The prime game fish sought by anglers are the walleye or pickerel. They are so plentiful in this lake that catching your limit is considered a bad days fishing. Other species that are abundant are northern pike, smallmouth & largemouth bass, yellow perch, muskellunge, whitefish & cisco. Lake Nipissing is also the ice-fishing capital of the north.

It’s time to go fishing on Lake Nipissing in Ontario Canada!


Twas the Night Before First Ice

By Nick Simonson

Twas the night before first ice, and all through the lake,

Not a fish had been stirring, not even a splake.

The buckets were filled with my rods and my tackle,

In hopes that the perch would like jigs trimmed with hackle.

The tip-ups were strung with nylon and leaders,

To deal with the teeth of big predator feeders.

The minnows were purchased and set on the steps,

The Vexilar charged to read various depths.

When out under the ice there arose such a clatter,

I sprang into my coveralls to assess the matter.

In the dark to the pickup I flew like a flash,

And drove to the station to fill the auger with gas.

The full moon on the breast of the new-frozen water,

Meant the ice-season action could not get much hotter.

Alone toward the lake I started to steer,

Soon the roar of the auger was all I could hear.

Setting tip-ups and jigging on the ice all around,

Searching for fish like a veteran bloodhound.

More rapid than lightning to my baits they came,

I hooted and hollered and called them by name.


Come, RAINBOW and YELLOW PERCH and you don’t have to stop-pie!

To the treble of tip-up,

to the jig or the spoon!

Now bite good and hard and I’ll be here past noon!

The excitement, the passion, the fins and the tails,

Impossible to measure with rulers and scales.

The colors of fishes of varying size,

The wonder of nature that lit up my eyes.

And then, in an instant, I set the hook hard,

I looked down and saw her - she must measure a yard!

In gold and silver and tipped with white,

She promised to battle me into the night.

Rolling and twisting with her strength she did brag,

As from my reel she pulled on the drag.

I cranked and it squealed as her head neared the hole,

Grabbing her quickly, I achieved my goal.

Her eyes - twinkling silver,

her gills how they flared,

Sharp curved white teeth,

her pointy mouth bared.

I unhooked the spoon with a twist of my plier,

And gazed at a walleye anyone would admire.

Better suited she was for story than plate,

Watching her swim away,

I had to feel great.

To let free such a whopper to catch one day again,

Is a thing that is done by the greatest sportsmen.

In the picture I took she was preserved for all,

And the photo was enough for me to hang on the wall.

The sun was then setting, and the day felt complete,

To the truck I went packing with snow at my feet.

Though cold all around and night beginning to fall,

I was warmed with a memory that could top them all.

As I drove away, the lake leaving my sight,

I thought long and hard of that day and that night.

And the next time I’m bothered with everyday chores,

I’ll just remember this time, spent in... our outdoors.
