Lake Mattagami is one of the Walleye fishing lakes in Northern Ontario. Fishing for Northern Pike and Whitefish lakes is very good but Walleye is the dominant species.
Walleye average around 2.5 pounds with high numbers available as well as trophy Walleye up to 10 pounds. Don't worry, there are also lots of smaller 16-inch and 17-inch Walleye, which are best for shore lunch.
Northern Pike are also very common and guests each year catch many Pike over 20 pounds. The majority of Northern Pike caught in the lake are between 20 and 35 inches.
Lake Mattagami is also a rocky Canadian Shield Lake with many rocky points and shoals. Due to the high population of Walleye and Northern Pike, the Smallmouth Bass have not been able to become a dominant species in the lake but the Bronzebacks that survived the gauntlet of pike teeth have grown to be big. Smallmouth bass are not common like Walleyes and Northern Pike.
The lake has an extremely high population of Whitefish. In the spring before the May Fly hatch, guests can experience non-stop Whitefish action with the proper techniques. Whitefish are found in all different sizes up to 8 pounds.
