Canada Walleye Lake?

I'm looking for a family friendly lake in Canada with decent walleye fishing not too far from the 1,000 Island Bridge. Any recommendations? Thanks!!

Good luck.I hope someone on here can help you.I've fished Canada for 20 years It going to be hard to find good walleye fishing that far south at least I never could.

Re: Canada Walleye Lake?

When I was in my teens, my dad took me to laverendre provincial park three times. We tent camped and fished small lakes, most under a thousand acres and caught lots of walleye and pike. There are 2 large lakes (lac dozior and grand lac Victoria) that have cabins and larger boats, but we never fished them.

Lots of eater walleye. My best was a 7.5lb blue walleye.

It seems that the lakes close to the border are fished hard. IMO, rent a state park cabin at pymatuning, and keep your money in the us.

That is also my experience. Fish Rideau chain every year and have never seen a walleye. Only quality walleye fishing I have had is fly in camps in Quebec.

We were fishing "fly in" lakes. The only other humans we saw came on float planes. We just portaged canoes to get to them.

I've fished Buckshot Lake and done well for walleye. Majority of fish 15-22 inches, but easy to catch limits each day. Here's the place I stayed http://www.buckshotlakecamp.com/

Thanks everyone for the recommendations. I will check out buckshot camp and definitely like the idea of Pymatuming.

For many years my dad and I rented a cabin for a week on Indian Lake of the Rideau chain. We fished mainly Indian, Clear and Newboro Lakes. Never knew it as a walleye lake at all but plenty of largemouth & smallmouth bass and pike along with lots of panfish. Fun memories of that place, both on and off the water.

Re: Canada Walleye Lake?

Buckshot lake is a fun walleye lake, been there five or six times. Always stayed at white birch lodge though ( the other lodge on the lake). As fish culturist said lots of 18-22, maybe a few over 24". Haven't been there in 10 years though.

There is always a season!

Re: Canada Walleye Lake?

Be very careful what zone you are in, the area around the Rideau Chain only allows 2 walleyes, and they must be between @15 and 19 inches.... really stinks throwing back all the big ones.
