Walleye Fishing on Lady Evelyn Lake

Lady Evelyn Lake is one of the best Walleye fishing lakes in Ontario if you are looking for a mix of big trophy Walleye as well as great numbers of smaller Walleyes. There have been outstanding days where three guests in one boat have caught over 150 Walleye but we don't want you to expect that. If you want to catch lots of walleye with all of them being small and the same size, then this lake is not for you. If you want to drop the numbers a bit and greatly increase your chances of catching the biggest Walleye of your life, then this lake is for you. Please remember that we are comparing our lake to the top Walleye lakes in Ontario, not just any lake with Walleye.

Lady Evelyn Lake is where serious trophy Walleye fisherpersons fish. On an average day you will catch up to a dozen Walleye and some days you may catch many more. The simple truth is Lady Evelyn Lake is stuffed with trophy Walleye and is the most consistent producer of Walleye over 30 inches in Ontario. With this in mind, you will find yourself spending more time looking for the big ones.

Walleye are common in the 17 to 22-inch range. There is a great population of monster Walleye in the lake with our guests catching between 1 and 7 Walleyes over 30 inches each week. The largest Walleye caught in recent years was 36 inches and weighed in at an astounding 18.5 pounds.

There are reasons for such a high population of trophy Walleye:

1) There is no pubic access road to the lake so the lake receives very little fishing pressure.

2) Lady Evelyn Lake is far enough north to exhibit classic Canadian Shield structure, which the Walleye love, but far enough south for a longer growing season thus the Walleye grow faster and get bigger.

3) We are a catch-&-release lodge. All Walleye, 17 inches and larger, must be released. Don't worry, you will catch lots of 15 and 16-inch Walleye for shore lunch and/or breakfast. As a result of our conservation policy, the Walleye fishing gets better every year.

4) There is an excellent forage base. Our Walleye are well fed as the lake has a high population of baitfish such as Chub, Shiners, Cisco and Lake Herring.

5) Our Walleye are genetically larger. There is a string of lakes, starting with Lady Evelyn, and heading east and then south into Algonquin Park that all contain these giant Walleyes. Unfortunately the other lakes have public access and have been over-fished.

We assist all guests in their quest for Walleye by giving you an orientation on the lake, a laminated contour map with all the hot spots marked and tell you what the Walleye are hitting best at the time of your vacation. Any time of year is a good time of year. Walleye fishing is spectacular from opening in the spring right until we close the camp in September.

Please take a look at our photo galleries and yearly Walleye statistics and you will be amazed at the number of trophy fish being caught. The anticipation of catching a trophy Walleye makes Garden Island Lodge an exciting place to go fishing. It also explains why we have an unusually high re-booking rate. Our guests keep coming back for more year after year.
