Located southeast of the town of Red Lake, Ontario, Confederation Lake is loaded with big lake trout and northern pike. In fact, the average size of both these species in this particular lake, along with their numbers, is something you have to experience to believe. Covering an area exceeding 14,000 acres and at 17 miles long by 6 miles wide, Confederation Lake offers anglers endless water to choose from. With depths in excess of 100 feet in many spots, the lake trout fishing is "off the charts" with a nice average size fish and the larger fish in the 15 to 20-pound range and 35+ inches. With the lake trout, it's really about how many of them there are in the lake, it is truly something else!
Confederation Lake is also a big pike factory with these voracious predators found just about anywhere in the lake. It's not difficult to catch a 40+ inch northern on Confederation and the chance you'll hook into a fish approaching 45 inches is better than most other lakes in Sunset Country! You get both length and girth on the northern pike caught on this lake. The quality of the fishing is really something you have to experience firsthand. For those that do, you won't be disappointed!
