Lake nipissing fishing

Lake Nipissing is a well known trophy fishery and is one of Canada's premier fishing destinations for good reason. Each year this massive body of water continues to produce good numbers of Walleye, Musky, Northern Pike and Bass.  Big water equals big fish, allowing these specimens to reach truly impressive sizes.


The west bay of Lake Nipissing is a unique destination in itself. Here you will find a tremendous amount of undisturbed and protected shoreline boasting miles of weed line and structure, serving up an abundance of fish habitat. Anglers have the benefit of fishing west bay exclusively or venturing to the expansive open waters of Nipissing's just a short boat ride from our cottages.

Leo Stakos, Ron James & Jeff Chisolm - Fish TV

"The reason they call this Paradise Cove is because it truly is Paradise!  With four beautiful self appointed cottages we felt as though we were the only ones up here while we filmed our show. We've been with a lot of guides  over the years and Regan is one of the best.  He knows every inch of this water and had us on fish as soon as we hit the water.  Overall just a beautiful spot with amazing fishing and great hosts.  Thank you so much Regan and Goldie and we'll be back again soon!"

Jim Saric - Host of The Musky Hunter 

"Lake Nipissing is known for trophy muskies and Paradise Cove is the perfect location.   While filming The Musky Hunter television show we caught muskies close to the resort as well as in the main lake, which was really just a quick trip from where our cottage was.  Paradise Cove offers great accommodations, the nicest I've personally stayed in while filming a show.  It also has premium docks and they even have their own boat launch.  It has everything a musky hunter needs to relax and stay comfortable after a hard day chasing muskies."


Bob Izumi - Host of The Real Fishing Show

"This part of the lake is well sheltered allowing us to fish on even windy days. We focused on smallmouth bass when we taped a show there and they didn’t disappoint us. During our short stay we caught and released several trophy smallies over five pounds. This is one Ontario’s premier smallmouth bass fisheries with very little pressure. We all had an awesome time and can’t wait to go back!"


Italo Labginan - Host of Canadian Sport Fishing

 "I've been blessed to fish at so many fishing lodges in the last 35 yrs right across Canada and I was really impressed with my recent trip to Paradise Cove Cottages in West Bay of Lake Nipissing. To begin with, the owners Regan & Goldie Thompson made me feel at home making sure our group had everything we needed to have a very pleasant stay at one of their beautiful cottages.  Their location is very unique since it offers anglers endless fishing possibilities of protected waters for large & smallmouth bass, walleye, pike, musky & panfish."
