Walleye fishing on Nipissing heats up!

Posted on June 14th, 2011

I had the pleasure of fishing out of Sunbeam Bungalows on Callander Bay for three days this past week with Nipissing Muskies.

We caught our smaller walleyes in an average of 12 feet of water and the larger walleyes were contacted in 6 feet of water.  We hooked into several species, including sheepshead, gar pike, and smaller pike.  We were even lucky enough to hook into the elusive “Blue” Walleye.  I had never heard of one before but our Super Guide Danny enlightened me and took this picture for comparison.

The air temps were 23 to 27 degrees C.  The water temps in the open bay and lake were 69 to 71 defgrees F.  The small bays we fished went as high as 75 degrees F where we caught our walleyes. The winds were moderate and mainly from the west.

Where we stayed was perfect, Sunbeam Bungalows (google map) offers great accomodations by the water, near the rustic a small town of Callander all within 10 minutes of the major City of North Bay.

The rooms were well appointed, roomy and offered fantastic views of the sunset – perfect after an excellent day fishing with friends!
