Kawartha Panfish mix.

Posted on June 14th, 2022

We are getting good reports that the panfish fishing has been good in the Kawartha Lakes, ON. Anglers are using live bait and also small grubs to catch chunky panfish in 4-7′ of water around weeds.

Ed Dolstra holds up a couple of eating-size sunfish.

Ed Dolstra love to enjoy a mix of panfish and as you can see from his catch, he’ll have a couple of nice meals to enjoy.

Both Pumpkinseed and Bluegill are excellent deep-fried!

The panfish fishing will get better as water temps warm up and panfish start to school-up on weedlines in shallow bays and also around clumps of open water weeds.

Big Bluegill develop “shoulders” that make for nice fillets.

Rice Lake is one of the top Bluegill and Pumpkinseed producer.

Peter Yeung holds up a chunky Rock Bass that are also excellent table fare.

Lake Simcoe around Keswick, ON should be excellent right now for big Rock Bass that like to move in around the big rocks right at the mouth of the marina basin there.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our www.canadian-sportfishing.com website.
