Pound for pound, smallmouth bass are the feistiest fish in Northwest Ontario. In Sunset Country, our lakes teem with these fighters waiting to grab your bait and provide you with plenty of action. Smallies are exciting to catch and the sheer numbers in our area make Sunset Country one of Canada's premier bass fishing locations. As an added bonus, several lakes offer excellent largemouth bass populations as well, making our area a must visit destination for any serious angler. With over 70,000 lakes, we've got some great fishing holes for you to choose from! The fall bass fishing can't be beat.
Many of the members of the Sunset Country Travel Association offer excellent Canadian bass fishing on their lakes. Whether it's a trophy fish you're after or you just want to catch and release bass until your arms are sore, we can help you find that perfect fishing spot. Choose from deluxe drive-in or boat-in facilities to luxury fly-in resorts and lodges located on remote lakes - with no roads going in or out. You can choose to have your meals included as part of an American Plan package or do your own cooking and rent a housekeeping cottage.
For a true wilderness experience, why not rent an exclusive fly-in fishing outpost cabin where it's only you and your fishing party on the entire lake - absolutely no neighbors! These lakes see less than 24 groups a year, and can offer some of the best catch and release bass fishing anywhere. Other accommodations options include hotels & motels, campgrounds, houseboat rentals or a canoe/camping trip.
