Fish Species

Abundance of Fish Species

Very few lakes in Canada, let alone Ontario, can top Lake Simcoe for its many cold water species that enjoy the deep sections of the lake. Several species that call this lake home include trout, whitefish, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, largemouth bass, northern pike, black crappie, walleye, brown bullhead, bowfin, carp, rock bass, white suckers and rainbow smelt.

Each year, the lake is stocked with 150,000 whitefish and 100,000 trout by staff from the Ministry of Natural Resources.
