Lake Nipissing is home to Large and Small Mouth Bass and can be caught throughout all four seasons on Lake Nipissing. Yes, that's right, there is even a winter season for this fishery. The ice fishing season brings lots of bass up through the ice holes and makes for a great fight. Nipissing's South Shore has plenty of world class bass and Fishing Shows have and will continue to bring attention to the wonderful world of bass fishing on Lake Nipissing. The lake has perfect habitats, from fallen tress to Lilypad covered weed beds, and is waiting for you to cast, drop, jerk and reel in some monster bass. Whether it is catch and release, Smallmouths even make a fine shore lunch. Leeches go flying around Bear Creek's waters to entice the hungry and watchful eye of this fish species. Bear Creek Cottages can supply you with leech bait from our local Bowman's Bait if that is something you would like to try! If you catch your limit in Wallies, then go for a cast around some local weed beds or rock piles, for an exciting hook-up of the well-known energic and feisty bass.
