Hello Fellow Fishermen,

I have been trying to find walleyes for the last few years but without much luck. I fish out a canoe/kayak so it has to be within paddling distance. Any suggestions for places to fish in October would be greatly appreciated. You don't have to give me GPS coordinates but a general vicinity would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


PS - I live in Richmond Hill (just north of Toronto), so somewhere within 2 hours would be great. Thanks once again.

My favourite walleye spots on Sturgeon aren't the best for kayaking, especially as the sun goes down on the open lake. What I'd recommend is Lovesick Lake. You can launch at the ramp by the Burliegh Falls lock. I was seeing walleyes amongst the weeds and rocks in the shallower water the other day. It's a great lake for canoe/kayak as it's very sheltered from the winds, and lots of areas to explore that are not in the main boat channel. Get a map as depths vary like crazy, and it ranges from deep and rocky, to shallow and weedy. Remember to use lights after dark though, I've had way too many close calls with kayaks and small boats after dark with no lights! I also like fishing the area around Youngs point, either above or below the dam area. The lake there runs down to Lakefield, but I have caught some nice walleye in the past, nearer the highway bridge, at the Youngs point lock and that general area. Again, sheltered, low boat traffic area.

I'd look at small lakes north of Buckhorn. If you use the Fish Online tool, you'll find some lakes up that way that would be kayak friendly and also hold walleye.
