Whitefish fishing


Fishing Ontario Whitefish

We have outstanding whitefish fishing at Gathering Lake Outfitters. Our clients enjoy Lake Whitefish out of the two species offered at our Ontario fishing lodges. Our experienced guides will show our clients how to have the opportunity to catch whitefish in the 5 to 10 pound range with trophy’s common. Whitefish have a small sucker-looking mouth about the diameter of your thumb. Anglers use lures small enough to fit in the whitefish’s small mouth. Whitefish fishing is 50 to 60 feet down in the deep water of of our lakes in June is the best time to catch these delicious fish.

What to bring

  • We recommend lite or ultra lite tackle and fly rods for fishing Whitefish in our lakes
  • Portable fishfinder will help but not a must
  • In the Spring is the best time using 4 lb. test line and really tiny hooks with a single salmon egg, grub, a little ball of Berkley Power Dough or the best bait, Wax Worms.
  • In early summer we recommend(first two weeks of July) you use small spinner, 1/6 jigs or tiny floating Rapalas since the fish are close to the surface.
  • Using a May Fly or Waxwork can be deadly also when fish are feeding heavy on the May Fly hatch.
  • If you are a fly fisherman then this is the spot for you to catch limits of Whitefish with your fly-rod
