Been a while since I've posted but I'm planning on getting out on the ice this weekend.. now that I live in the kawartha area I'm looking to try some new spots.. noticed Balsam lake provincial park on a drive the other day and I was wondering if anyone knows if Balsam lake has ice fishing available..havent seen much info about this lake for ice fishing... I'm just planning on going for panfish as some of the other species in there are closed this time of year..
Any help is appreciated

Balsam does have ice fishing available but due to limited public access not many people are able to fish it . most public launches have alot of current flowing thru. Take some spoons and bigger minnows with you for Pike . basically only pike and panfish are open season . good luck !

The park is closed during the winter months.

I have seen a fish hut out on Balsam for the last 3 days so I am assuming there is enough ice to get out safely at that spot and with the cold weather I would guess most of the lake will be ok.

I wouldn’t assume anything. Tread lightly and spud your way out. Good luck out there
