Kenora is home to some outstanding fishing. It is one of the better places to plan a fishing trip out of in all of North America. Lake of the Woods is here and it is known for its excellent fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, muskie and more. You can catch so many different species of fish here, but the smallmouth bass really stand out here. You can catch dozens of them if you know how to fish for them.
The Kenora area is also home to part of the Winnipeg River system. Just north of town, you can fish for walleye, pike, smallmouth bass and perch. There are some other lakes in this area as well, however, most anglers come here to fish Lake of the Woods or the Winnipeg River System. Take a look at our Lake of the Woods – Kenora page for more detailed information on that area.
