Hi

New to the forum.

Looking at property up on Lake Kipawa (Baie-Dorvel) area or Lake Nipissing (either Lavigne or Collins Bay area)

Just looking for all around fishing pressure and quality of fishing in these areas. Is it every to busy to get out? (coming from down south where sometimes its not enjoyable with the amount of boats on the water)

Enjoy fishing bass, walleye and pike.

Just looking for thoughts.

Thanks

Nipissing >>>> Kipawa. No comparison.

I can't speak for Kipawa but there can be a fair amount of boat traffic at times, though I would say this is mostly people travelling to/from properties or servicing properties. As for true fishing pressure there's so many places if your spot 1A is occupied 1B/C/D/E/F etc won't be too far away. I usually plan a circuit of spots I want to hit and skip the ones that are occupied and revisit later.

I can't speak for the east end, but for us on the west most of our summer boat traffic is people cruising, taking kids tubing, pwc's etc. We are on a main cahnnel and not far from a campground, so that amplifies things.There is enough fishing pressure but the majority aren't seasoned anglers so fishing is still very good. The bigger problem for us is boats wanting to follow us around or fish nearby as we apparently look like we know what we are doing lol
Last weekend was a a little crazy. I think it was Saturday there was so much boat traffic that the walleye didn't bite until the lake calmed down. Sunday was cool and overcast with a bit of rain... and for the most part we had the lake to ourselves. Long weekends can be crazy. During the week can be the polar opposite.
The lake has changed in regards to musky fishing, however. In the last 15 years the lake has come alive in regards to it. Boats all over in October, and they cover a lot of water. I don't fish in the fall, but they mess with our duck hunting lol
