Location is Key

Caribou Lake, located in Northwestern Ontario near Wabakimi Park and Armstrong, is a prime destination for fishing enthusiasts. The lake boasts a variety of fish species, including walleye, northern pike, and lake trout. With depths reaching up to 200 feet and a varied lake structure consisting of both rocky and muddy areas, Caribou Lake offers something for every angler. Fishing in Caribou Lake is best during the spring and summer months, when the water is warmer and the fish are more active. However, the lake is also popular for ice fishing during the colder winter months. Located at coordinates 49.5968° N, 84.8305° W, Caribou Lake is easily accessible and offers a serene, peaceful setting for a day of fishing.

World Class Fishing

With over 20 thousand acres of water and 2,800 miles of shoreline, Caribou Lake can give even the most seasoned fishermen the thrill of a lifetime. Due to our remote location in Ontario, Caribou Lake has many walleye with lengths up to 32 inches, and many northern pike are caught in the 40 inch range every year. Caribou Lake is also fairly rare in that it is a naturally reproducing habitat for Lake Trout. Caribou Lake is very deep in spots, with some areas reaching 200 feet in depth. Looking for trout? There's no shortage of them in these waters.

Conservation For The Future

In Ontario, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) is responsible for managing the province's fish and wildlife resources, including regulating recreational fishing. The MNRF has established limits on the size, number, and species of fish that can be caught and kept by anglers to ensure the sustainability of fish populations and to preserve the biodiversity of Ontario's aquatic ecosystems. In addition to setting fishing limits, the MNRF also plays a role in conservation efforts to protect and restore Ontario's aquatic ecosystems. This includes working with partners to research and monitor fish populations, implementing habitat restoration projects, and enforcing fishing regulations to ensure that anglers are complying with the rules. It is important for anglers to familiarize themselves with the fishing limits and regulations in their area to ensure that they are fishing responsibly and helping to conserve Ontario's valuable fish and wildlife resources.
