Welcome to our Thunder Bay, Ontario Fishing Home Page

Thunder Bay is located on Lake Superior, but in Ontario, Canada.  The bay is known for its excellent fishing, but this is definitely big water fishing.  In this area, many people will use Thunder Bay as their base camp as they get you enjoy all the amenities of this city, but still get away to experience some awesome fishing too.  For others, they may stay at a fishing resort, but then come in for a day or part of a day in the Thunder Bay area.  It’s a nice destination that mixes some some city life with some outdoors adventures.

Lake Superior / Thunder Bay

Lake Superior provides some great fishing, however, if you don’t have the right size boat, you’re going to need to look at hiring a fishing charter.  There are several charters here that target salmon and trout on the bay.  In addition to salmon and trout, northern pike, smallmouth bass and walleye are here too.  It’s a popular summer destination, however, lots of people that don’t have a boat get to enjoy fishing the bay area in the winter when the ice is thick enough.

The Area Waters

Fish the area waters for a variety of fish.  Depending on the lake you choose, you can target smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, perch, crappie and more here.
