Fishing on the Island

Bear’s Inn is known to be a fisherman’s paradise with a wide variety of fresh-water fish including: lake trout,  whitefish, bass, rainbow trout and salmon. We also provide a fish cleaning station for your convenience and freezing services so that you can bring the big one home or have it mounted in memory of your vacation experience.

Manitoulin Island has an abundance of fishing locations which are ideal throughout the summer. If fishing off a pier or the shoreline is not to your liking, there are several charters specializing in down rigging for salmon and deep, freshwater fish or leisure cruises around the lakes. The most popular fishing spots are located in Lake Manitou, Lake Kagawong, and on the shores of Georgian Bay.

The Bears Inn Resort offers free boat launching and dock space just seconds away from your cottage for guests that wish to bring their own boat. Please provide us with advanced notice so we can ensure a space will be available upon your arrival.
