The Area Waters

Lake Temagami

Lake Temagami is the main draw here.  It is a big lake with lots of fishing opportunities for a variety of fish.  Anglers target northern pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, lake trout and perch.  The fishing is very good on the lake for action and some trophy fish too.  Most anglers come here for the walleye and northern pike fishing.  Some anglers realize how good the smallmouth bass fishing is here too and they target them, but they are usually under fished compared to the walleye.  Lake trout anglers do well in shallower water in the spring and in fall, but will be fishing deep for them in the summer.  Lake Temagami is a big lake with so many places to fish on it with all its islands, bays and points.  Because of how this lake is shaped, you can usually find some place to fish even on windy days, which is not typical of bigger lakes.

Marten River Area

Just south of Lake Temagami, the Marten River system is known as an excellent body of water to fish as well.  Anglers target a variety of fish here such as walleye, northern pike, lake trout, smallmouth bass and perch.  This area has a lot of water to fish, but you can catch plenty of fish on this river system.  Some of the lakes that are known for good fishing are Little Marten Lake, Big Marten Lake, Bruce Lake and Mcfee Lake.  If you bring a smaller boat that you can drop in, there are plenty of smaller lakes in the area if you want to do some exploring while here.

Smaller Lakes & Streams in the Area

This area has so much water here to fish.  Some of the smaller lakes will have nicer boat launches, while others will require you to drop a smaller boat in to be able to access the lake.  There is a lot of good fishing for a variety of species such as northern pike, walleye, smallmouth bass and even lake trout on some of the deeper lakes.  Brook trout are also common here on some of the area lakes and streams.
