Howdy all, we asked a similar question last year but didn't actually move due to this Covid mess. Our plan is to move this spring. But to which lake is the question. We work in Oshawa/Whitby so we're limited to lakes that are a reasonable commute. We've narrowed our search to these lakes, Pigeon, Sturgeon, Chemong or Rice lake, All are within an hours drive. (We've fished Scugog, but to be honest the weeds are a deal breaker)

Which lake would you move to and why?

We have 17.5 ft G3 Deep V Angler(90HP), and lately have been doing really well on Lake Ontario Salmon fishing, but time to focus on the Task of finding the right lake for us to live on. Thanks for your input. Duffin

Thanks for replying Atilla. Why do you suggest Sturgeon?

North end of chemong. Still connected to tri lakes without going through locks and way less boat traffic as off the main Path so donít get house boats. North end of chemong is surprisingly not as weedy as buckhorn in my opinion and no where near as rough as pigeon can be on a windy day.

Thanks Krob11. We're very familiar with Chemong as we had a trailer at Baily's Bay for about 10 years. Didn't boat past Bridgenorth much though. Thanks for responding.

All good choices IMO...your commute time could really increase to 1.5 hours depending where you'd be on each lake. North end of Chemong is nice , but a good hour and a quarter to Oshawa/Whitby in the summer...never mind the winter. The 115 has been a poop show in recent years in the winter. Driving that every day might grind on you.

West end of Rice is a quick drive down 28 to 401...lots of water to fish...all the way up the river to Ptbo.

Great fishing, reasonable drive to your work location including plenty of alternates if there's something wrong on the 35/115, closer to major cities down along the lakeshore, and finally if something ever goes wrong at the house you won't have to drive an hour to get a part for something. Lindsay has it all and you'd be wanting for nothing.

I could go back and talk about the fishing, but I think my reports speak for themselves.
