Bluegill & Other Sunfish

Lake Nipissing does have some sunfish available.  Rock bass and other sunfish are here and you will usually find these fish in the shallower bays with some weeds and rocks.  These fish do go deep as well, so you may find some schools in deeper water.  Most anglers don’t come here to target these fish, but if you use live worms, you will get some action from the sunfish.  The French River has plenty of sunfish too.  It’s a very diverse fishery, so if you are fishing with worms on the river, you will most likely run into some sunfish.
