Walleye fishing on Wabigoon Lake is fantastic. Wabigoon Lake is a big lake and for its size, it's fairly shallow and the water is many times more nutrient than other lakes in the area. Wabigoon Lake is also warmer than most Northwestern Ontario Lakes. As a result, there are plenty of weeds both close to shore and in the deeper water. The warmer water also means our Walleyes grow faster and bigger than Walleyes in other Lakes. Wabigoon is an easy lake to fish. There are endless bays, islands, rocky points and sunken weed beds, which are all hot spots for Walleye. With such easy to recognize structure, it's a lot of fun exploring the lake and finding new Walleye holes.
Walleyes are most common in the 1.5 to 3-pound range. Walleyes in the 4 to 7-pound range get caught and released frequently. Many times throughout the season, trophy Walleyes over 10-pounds are caught & released as well.
Time of year, weather, how hard you fish and how well you know the lake are all factors in your success. On an average day a guest can expect to catch 15 to 25 Walleyes. On a good day, guests have reported catching more than 60 Walleyes. If you are new to the lake, we will show you where the hot spots are to get you started.
Wabigoon Lake is one of the best lakes in Northernwestern Ontario for both size and numbers, which is why it was chosen to host the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail.
