I am wanting to start planning a canoe/fishing trip for next year. I am looking for some ideas for lakes that have great fishing for Lake Trout/Splake and Walleye. I am willing to drive from Barrie Ontario for about 16 hours or so. Distance is not a big issue. Was thinking about the Blue Lakes region (Kirkpatrick Lake, but they don't have Walleye. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Not looking for your specific fishing secrets, just lakes to explore myself. If you prefer to PM information, that would be fine too. Thanks.
Paul

Use the search tool, change to fish species and check your desired catch.

What do you mean "change to fish species"? If I just search Lake trout I get 2,000+ hits about everything but where to catch lake trout. Thanks.

I'm using an iPhone which will most likely differ from desktop.
But in search there is a default for popular fishing lakes so I picked Lake Huron.
Under detailed search I changed from 'water body name' to 'fish species'. From there I picked splake, lakers, and pickerel.
Click OK.
Then I chose within 50km~31miles
Type in location,'Honey Harbour'
Click Go

And from there I get a list of 10 lakes of 52. Fishing has never been so easy.
There is a list of map icons down the left side of list, point and click there and the map of the lake will pop up.

It took me a minute to realize that you had posted a link to:

Paul I would look into the Geralton area. Lots of great walleye fishing . I am sure there are lake trout lakes too. Do some searches of the area. Lots of lakes to go to and trips to do. Last year we did a trip from Marshall lake to Summit and return. As much walleye and pike as you wanted to catch. Rob Haslam is a great contact for information of that area.

Thanks Bill. I have been up to that area 3 times now and loved it. The fishing was fantastic! I will probably go back again next year for a week or so of fishing. 100 fish days were not uncommon. Just looking for a different adventure if I can find one.

Fushimi Lake, northwest of Hearst. Great backcountry campsites and FABULOUS fishing - walleye & pike - I was in Heaven all week..... I swear they would've hit a bare hook! :thumbup:

Thanks Sk8r. I'll start poking around some maps of that area.
Canoe Tripper, I am very interested in the Temagami region. Any suggestions on any "off the beaten path" areas? I prefer getting back into lakes where my chances of seeing other people are slim.
Thanks

After looking at the Fish On Line site quite extensively, I have to say I'm disappointed by the accuracy. The list of fish species does not appear to match what is really in some lakes. I'm sure they get many lists correct. but don't rely on it when going to a lake for the first time. Cool idea, but it must be hard with the hundreds of thousands of lakes in Ontario to get it right.
