Fishing Tips for Lower Rideau Lake

Smallmouth bass that average about 2-3.5lbs are the main draw to Lower Rideau Lake but nice pike, walleye and a few lake trout can be found here as well. Weedlines, shallow bays, islands, and points are the best spots for bass. Consider fishing with tubes, weedless jigs, spinners, and topwaters. You can catch pike by fishing with the same baits in the same spots but you well have better luck by fishing near the deep hole, steep drop offs, weedlines surrounding the deep hole, points, and islands. Spoons, twitch baits, spoons, swimbaits, and jerkbaits work well for pike. While there are some lake trout found here the lake is really too shallow to support a good population so fishing is slow. Tight Lines!
