Fish Temagami

Ridgewood Cottages is located on Angus Lake, just south of Temagami so many visitors come for the fishing and they keep coming back! Cast off right from the dock at Ridgewood Cottages or rent a boat and motor or a canoe and explore the lake while you fish. Clean your catch onsite in our fish cleaning hut and grill it on one of our propane barbecues or your private open fire pit.

Types of Fish

According to surveys done by Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), cool water fish like walleye and pike, are native to both Angus Lake and to Jumping Caribou Lake. There is a short portage into Jumping Caribou Lake directly across from Ridgewood Cottages. MNR surveys indicate the warm water smallmouth bass was introduced into Angus Lake and is native to Jumping Caribou Lake. You can fish right off the dock at the cottages or head out in a boat.
