The Best Fishing Resort in OntarioEscape to Lake Nipissing

To the calm sheltered waters of the south shore of Callander Bay!

Whether you're a vacationing family or fishing party we've got plenty to offer you at Bayview Camp & Cottages. We're situated in a quiet setting away from the main lake and secluded from the hustle and noise of a large population, yet only 15 minutes from North Bay.

Our property consists of 1000 feet of waterfront and 12 acres of manicured grounds, giving you plenty of room to roam. Lounge in the shade of our tree-lined beach or bask in the sun, relax in your cottage, fish or cruise in your boat on the picturesque bay. Whatever your choice, take plenty of pictures, we would love to feature you in our next brochure or on our fishermen's wall of fame.

Fishing Lake NipissingCallander Bay - A Fishing Experience To quote Ontario Out of Doors Magazine, March 2004, "Lake Nipissing is legendary for being a Walleye factory".... more

Callander Bay is a major spawning site for Walleye, making it one of the best locations to fish. Nipissing is a large and diverse lake with onshore weedlines that hold Pike and Muskie, rocky shoals with Smallmouth Bass and shallow, weedy bays that hide the Largemouth variety.

Islands in the bay provide structure for fish and fishermen alike, making it possible to get out fishing regardless of the weather. Complimentary maps are available along with information on hot spots, tackle and techniques used. Every measure is taken to ensure your fishing trip is a success. Our screened in fish cleaning building has running water, cutting boards and a seven-foot sink for the big ones. Not sure how to clean them? Just ask, we'll be happy to show you!

Some of the lures you might consider bringing with you for walleye would be jigs, especially in the spring and fall, tipped with a worm or minnow. Chartreuse, red, white and pink seem to work the best. We use a lindy rig quite a bit in the summer and generally fish in 25 feet of water or less. For fishing pike, large bucktails and big spoons like red eyes are the best. For bass fishing, buzz baits or a hook with split shot and a worm are successful while fishing structure along the shoreline and islands. All of this tackle can be purchased in our store. When staying at Bayview Camp, don't be afraid to ask what to use, as every lake is different and we are here to help. Still not sure of success? Then a fishing guide with over 25 years of experience can be arranged for you.
Fish Restocking on Lake Nipissing
Our local tourist association has been restocking Callander Bay and the South Shore for years. We have our own hatchery running and collect about 2 million eggs each spring. With approximately 80% of them hatching, that means 1.6 million fry are released in the lake each year.

In 1999 the MNR, with the full consent of the tourist industry, implemented a four fish limit on pike and walleye. There is also a protected slot size in effect. Any walleye between 40 to 60 centimeters must be released. The reason for this policy is to protect the spawning size females.

Sturgeon and walleye spawning bed rehabilitation has been completed at several key locations and is ongoing with more sites planned in the near future.

Our restocking program, in conjunction with the slot size, spawning bed rehabilitation and other conservation efforts has resulted in measurable improvements and a viable, sustainable sport fishery. The response from our customers has been excellent, since conservation is everyone's responsibility.

The comments that where left by me, were not my total comments. It has been abbreviated, to only leave the bad comments. I said, it is a perfect location, beautiful sunsets. And a shortage of staff. I do not know why my comments where abbreviated, but they were. I also stated if you went there for those reasons, you would be happy. I also quoted a previous reviewer. I do not like when my comments ... more have been changed
