Algonquin Provincial Park is well known for it’s Brook Trout and Lake Trout.
But it also holds other species such as Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass,
Catfish, Whitefish, Yellow Perch, Northern Pike, Muskellunge, and Walleye.
Earlier in the season up until late June, is the best for the brook and lake trout.
These cold water fish prefer cooler water and stay closer to the surface.
The bass season opens in late June and many people are surprised to find such
aggressive sportfish in Algonquin Park. During summer trout can still be caught,
but bass and northern pike are the more frequent catches. As fall settles in, the
cooler nights help cool the waters and trout become more active.
The park has special regulations and anglers need to be aware of the restrictions
before heading out. Things like slot size limits and designated voluntary catch
and release lakes are having positive effects on the Algonquin Park fishing.
Possession or use of live baitfish are prohibited in Algonquin Park.
The use or possession of live baitfish (including crayfish) or the capturing of any
baitfish using traps or nets, or the possession of any amphibian or reptile such as
frogs or salamanders is prohibited at all times.
