Primary Species of Fish

Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike & Perch

Lake Simcoe is known for its amazing perch fishery.  It is one of the best places to fish for big perch anywhere.  The smallmouth bass fishery is also very good with some of the biggest catches that you will find when comparing tournament weights among other lakes with smallmouth bass.  The pike fishing is also very good here, especially if you are going to target them around the deeper weed edges.

Secondary Species of Fish

Lake Trout, Whitefish, Largemouth Bass, Crappie

Lake Simcoe has good fishing for lake trout and whitefish.  Most anglers target these fish in the winter or early spring when they are much shallower.  Largemouth bass and crappie are here too with the better fishing usually in the Cook Bay or Holland River area.
