Dogfly Lake is a cold, clear, larger body of water. The smallmouth bass fishing is world class and second to none. The smallmouth bass average in the 2-4# range, with some guests reporting fish in the 6# class being caught and released each season. There is every type of structure for these hard fighting smallmouth bass to relate to. There are many deep water reefs, rock bars, weed beds, and down timber for the smallmouth to hide, as well as a few flowages of water coming into the lake. These are also home to the trophy pike lurking in Dogfly’s water. The northern pike run in the 4-8# class with 20#+ fish being caught and released each year. The serious pike fisherman will enjoy seeing these monsters explode on their baits in the clear water. In the summer months, working the deeper rock points and the edge of the deeper weed beds prove to be very productive. The lake trout fishing is some of the best that Northwestern Ontario offers. The deep cold water of Dogfly supports an excellent population of lakers in the 5-10# range with trout over 20# being caught. These exceptional fighters can be caught all season long by jigging and trolling. The lake trout fishing in the early spring and late fall can be an excellent experience as they are closer to the surface and can be caught on lighter tackle in very high numbers.
