Ontario Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Pound for pound, Smallmouth Bass is the best fighting fish in Northern Ontario and we have plenty of them right here.

Five Mile Lake, with its fertile water, rocky points and reeds, continues to produce not only good numbers of Smallmouth Bass, but good size bass as well. There is plenty of good structure in Five Mile Lake along with weed beds, which are full of bait fish. Smallmouth Bass are common in the one to three pound range but bigger bass in the four pound range get caught and released. Once in a while a Smallmouth over five pounds gets caught.

If Smallmouth Bass is what you seek, you'll be sure to find it here.
