Fishing Tips

 

Lake Shebandowan offers great fishing. Below is a list of fish found in the lake with a description and tips 
(information on this page provided by the Ontario's Ministry Of Natural Resources)

 

 

Walleye/Pickerel

 

The walleye (also known as pickerel) is found throughout Ontario and is particularly common in the Great Lakes basin. In Northern Ontario it is found in abundance in a wide range of waters.

 

 

Walleye thrive in a range of river and lake conditions from cold, clear water to warm, weedy and stained water. Preferred cover includes weed, wood and rock. Bottom types can be anything from soft mud to flooded timber, rubble or bedrock.

 

 

The walleye is a light-avoiding fish, caught most often under low light conditions. Fishing is generally best on cloudy or overcast days, or on days when waves keep light from penetrating too deeply into the water.

 

 

In springtime walleye will take almost any bait or lure, but may be more challenging to catch through the summer months. Fall often brings another peak of walleye feeding activity.

 

 

Casting or trolling with spinners or minnow-imitating plugs is a good bet. Special worm harness rigs of spinners and beads are often  trolled. Jigs, either traditional bucktails, or tipped with any of the modern plastics, a piece of worm or minnow are walleye angling favorites.

 

Excellent live bait includes:

  • minnows;
  • earthworms; and,
  • crayfish.

 

Live baits are often still-fished, drifted or trolled on slip-sinker or "bottom-bouncing" rigs. Walleye are readily caught through the ice, usually on jigs, jigging spoons or minnows.

 

 

Northern Pike

 

Pike are widely distributed in Ontario. Historically they have not been found in the Haliburton Highlands and the Kawartha Lakes of central Ontario. However, pike are expanding their range and can now be found in the northwestern corner of the Kawarthas. 
 

In a lake environment pike prefer weedy bays, estuaries and shoals as spring and summer habitat. During cool autumn days pike are  most likely to seek deeper water. 


Pike are aggressive feeders through spring, summer and fall and continue to be caught through the ice during the winter months. Pike will take just about every kind of live and artificial bait, including very large streamer flies. For trolling or casting try:

  • spoons;
  • bucktail spinners;
  • crankbaits;
  • topwater lures;
  • spinnerbaits; and,
  • buzzbaits.

 

Live baits include large chubs and shiners.

 

Smallmouth Bass

 

The distribution of the smallmouth bass includes the Great Lakes watershed, the St. Lawrence River and northward to north of Lake Nipissing and south of Lake Nipigon. In the northwest they can be found in the Lake of the Woods region. 
 

 

Lakes and rivers that are clear enough and rocky enough to be suitable for trout, but in which the water temperature is too high for trout, are generally good smallmouth bass habitat. Bass concentrate around shoreline rocks and points as well as offshore shoals, often in deep water. 
 

Popular baits are:

  • crayfish;
  • minnows;
  • hellgrammites; and,
  • leeches.

 

 

Small, deep-diving plugs and lures, and surface lures (in early morning and evening) are effective. But soft plastic lures in the form of crayfish imitations, twister tails and small worms or tubes are among the best smallmouth baits. These are often fished deep, in combination with a jig.

 

 

Yellow Perch

 

Yellow perch are commonly found in the Great Lakes drainage and have been introduced to waters beyond their original range. They are now widely distributed throughout the province. 
 

Perch are most numerous where there are expanses of open water and moderate amounts of vegetation. They often share water with species such as walleye and bass. 
 

 

Yellow perch are caught by a wide variety of methods:

  • still fishing with small minnows, earthworms, and grasshoppers;
  • insects and flies at the time of the mayfly emergence;
  • small spinners, spinner and fly combination; and,
  • small tube jigs or twister tails.

 

 

Perch show a preference for the natural food upon which they are feeding at the time. The live minnow gives the best success at all seasons of the year.
