Does anyone know if there are any Black Crappie in the West Arm of Lake Nipissing?

Not that i know of. Been fishing the arm since 13. Caught my fair share of rock bass tho. Checked an old Ontario guide to eating sport fish , black crappie is not listed for Nipissing. Have you caught any elsewhere on Nip?

This past week I fished the West Arm of Nip near St. Charles and we caught 2 Black Crappie in 2 different locations miles apart.

I have had a camp there since 2003 and have never seen one before either.

Good or bad I would imagine it will only be a couple of years and we will have a good population.

This guy was pretty tasty.

As far as I know, they've been in the lake for a while, but aren't very competitive.

Maybe someone can correct me.

Go buy yourself a lottery ticket!

I have heard of them being caught in nets (several years ago, at least), but never by anyone angling in Nip. Ever. You got 2

I've heard of salmon, splake, still waiting for a laker. Never a crappie.. until now.
