Eagle Lake is located between Kenora and Dryden in Northwest Ontario, approximately 150 miles from the border crossing at International Falls, MN. At 68,000 acres and over 70 miles long it is one of the areas larger and most diverse lakes in the region. Its waters hold all five major species of fish, walleye, northern pike, muskie, lake trout and smallmouth bass and provide trophy potential for all species. Eagle Lake is the only lake in Northwest Ontario to have produced muskies over 60 pounds.
Eagle Lake can be viewed as a number of smaller lakes interconnected by narrows and bays with over 400 islands. Its 70-mile length encompasses the shallow, stained waters of the south-eastern portion of the lake (Niven and Osbourne Bays), the mid-depth and clear central portion (Big Eagle, Portage and Vermilion Bays), and the deep, gin-clear West Arm. With the exception of lake trout which inhabit the West Arm, as well as several portage lakes, the remaining fish species can be found from one end of Eagle to the other.
