The Kawartha Lakes in Ontario are renowned  fishing waters for smallmouth and largemouth bass,  walleye (pickerel) and  the mighty muskellunge, and, increasingly, anglers are coming to the Kawarthas especially for the plentiful panfish.  Lovesick Lake has been said to be as beautiful if not more then Rice Lake.

Walleye in the one to two pound range are plentiful,  and some are also  being  caught in the 6 - 8 pound range.    Season opening in 2012 was fabulous. Many good sized walleye were caught. 

Bass fishing has  been terrific throughout the season in recent years and 2012 was no exception! Our guests found the bass plentiful, both small and large mouth ,and reported good catches.

Many anglers come to the Kawarthas and Lovesick Lake for the muskellunge fishing. In 2012 many were caught by our guests, and some were a good size.   Our guests reported that the muskie in the lake are plentiful and many of a smaller size were caught and put back in the lake for another year. Also, several guests shared exciting tales of "the one that got away"! - large muskie were hooked, but not landed. They're still there to offer our anglers exciting challenges in 2013.

Come for a week, a weekend, or take advantage of our discounted mid-week nightly rate or  Mid-week Specials during the spring and fall (see Rates page).   Rent a boat and motor or bring your own. We offer a guest boat launch and docking facilities, a fish cleaning area, and a freezer to store your fish for transport.

Fishing season has been extended for bass and muskie;  see end of page.
