Walleye Fishing:

Walleye fishing is very popular in our area of the lake as there is an abundant amount of Walleye in varying sizes. Walleye are very common in the 12 to 18" range where the 15-17" are best for shore lunches and meals. Many are caught in the 18 to 25" range where you can keep 1 over 18.1" per license. There are many Master Anglers being caught that are in the 25" and over range, with 25-27" Walleye even being caught right off of our docks and in our Bay. Our guests have caught a large number of Master Angler Walleyes, even up to 34" and over 10 pounds!

Walleye fishing is good throughout the fishing season, but the quality of the Walleye fishing depends on the time of year, the weather and the skill level of the Fishermen themselves. On average you should each be able to catch between 20 - 25 or more a day. We have had many groups that have reported easily catching between 50 and 100 or more Walleye in a day each.

Musky Fishing:

Lake of the Woods is back to being the top hotspot in Ontario for Musky fishing. People from all over come to Lake of the Woods to catch these monster fish. Most of the Musky you catch will be in the 35" to 45" range, but there are a surprising number of Musky over 50". In recent years guests have caught and released many Muskie between 47 - 55". Depending on the day you are Musky fishing, you will be surprised at how many Musky you can actually catch! Anglers, when specifically targeting Musky, have been known to catch 8 to 15 in a day here.

Northern Pike Fishing:

All along the shorelines, in our Bay and around the islands you will find perfect structure and weed-growth for great populations of Northern Pike. Sunken rocky ridges, long lines of Wild Rice and shallow bays full of Lily Pads and Musky Cabbage let the Northern Pike ambush their prey. There is a high population of Northern Pike in the 35" to 45" range and each week on average we have guests catch and release Northern Pike over 43". The pike fishing here is awesome, with our (two) largest Northerns being caught at 49" by two different fishermen who fished very close to our resort.

Northern Pike

Smallmouth Bass Fishing:

There are plenty of Smallmouth Bass off rocky points and shoals and in the weed beds. You will catch many sizes of Bass but most of them caught here are over 16". On an average day if targeting Smallmouth you should catch at least 10 or more, and on many days our guests have done much better than that. Guests catch and release Smallmouth Bass consistently up to 20", with our largest being a 23" to date. Many 17 - 21" Bass are caught right in our Bay. The Bass fishing just keeps getting better and better.

Perch Fishing:

The fields of Wild Rice and sunken weed-beds are often inundated with Jumbo Perch and Huge Crappie. Perch are most common in the 11" to 13" range with Jumbo Perch being caught here up to 14.75".

Crappie Fishing:

Crappie are very common in the 11 to 15" range, but have been caught up to 16.5" here. If you target the weeds with minnows and small baits you can have an exciting day catching your limits and more right in our Bay and beyond.

HUNT - Whitetail Deer; Black Bear; Ducks, Grouse, Woodcock & Geese

Black Bear Hunting:

This resort has always been known for its renowned Black Bear Hunts. We offer Black Bear hunts in the fall where the hides are better and there are no wood ticks. Our bear management area (BMA) is over 500 square miles of prime bear habitat. Male Black Bears are typically between 200 and 400 pounds in Ontario. In our exclusive BMA area; there have been many bears harvested in the 300 to 550 pound range with the biggest being 650 pounds. There are also color phased Bear with Blonde to Cinnamon to Dark Brown fur. We have fall hunts with baited sites and ladder stands set up for both archery and rifle hunters.

Whitetail Deer Hunting:

Whitetail Deer hunting is a time honored tradition here at Harris Hill Resort. Our area produces some of the biggest bucks in Ontario with many Boone & Crocket caliber Whitetails harvested at our camp, with a 197 Boone & Crockett being our largest to date. We have well spaced baited sites with heated stands set up for rifle hunters in prime deer country in our exclusive hunting areas that covers an estimated 2000 acres.

Waterfowl, Grouse and Wolf Hunting:

We are located near the border of the Mississippi Flyway and the Central Flyway. In the fall, hunting for ducks and geese is quite memorable. Every fall, rafts of ducks and geese of many species fly over or stop right in the Bay in front of the lodge to feed and rest.

The woods and unpopulated side roads have an extremely high population of Ruffed Grouse, Sharptail Grouse and Spruce Grouse, although they are cyclical. There are also many Woodcock in this area which is another popular Game Bird for hunting.

We do not offer Wolf hunts on their own, however Deer hunters can buy a Wolf tag and harvest a wolf at no extra charge if the opportunity arises.

This is your chance to enjoy the Ontario landscape and wildlife while on your fishing or hunting trip. Not far from our lodge you can go Golfing, swimming, hiking, view ancient pictographs, or do wildlife photography. There are also local attractions such as aboriginal Pow Wows to attend.
