Fishing & Hunting over Lake Nipissing

Discovering Lake Nipissing

Lake Nipissing, a large body of water with an area of 831 km2 and an altitude of 196 m, is the fifth largest lake in Ontario, excepting the big lakes. The lake is located far as 50 km northeast of the Georgian Bay. Its name comes from an Indigenous term which means “little water”. Lake Nipissing extends 80 km from east to west and is often a difficult lake to navigate, as it is longitudinally extending and parallel to the prevailing winds. It is a relatively shallow lake with about 10 m deep in the majority of parts, making it a well-ventilated lake that is favorable for healthy plant and aquatic life.

Historically, the two largest outlets of the lake were the Mattawa River connecting it to the Ottawa River system, with the French River, which drains from its southwestern extremity out into the Georgian Bay. Along this route between Ottawa and northern Georgian Bay, the early French explorers – the first was Étienne Brule in 1610 – traveled and mapped out a route that was followed by fur traders for the next 200 years. Permanent settlement around Nipissing Lake started since 1874 at Nipissing village in the southeast and since 1882 at the North Bay. From the 1880s to first WW, Lake Nipissing has been the main transportation way for settlers and forestry lumbering, because steamships were serving it regularly. Since that time, it has mainly been developed as a recreational waterway for tourist and for local holiday-seekers as well.
