FISHING

Experience fishing at its best at Big Bear Camp!

Big Bear Camp is located on the ever beautiful Horwood lake, this natural and very healthy lake has over 100 miles of shoreline to explore. With an impressive 22 miles in length from the dam to the falls and another 13 miles from the mouth of Hardiman bay to it’s very tip there is no shortage of water to conquer and explore, but don’t fret you do not have to venture to far from camp to catch fish.  Horwood Lake has several creeks, inlets and inflows to accommodate the 13 702 acres of water.  Keep in mind if you come up fishing in the early spring most of those are fish spawning sanctuaries and cannot be fished, although the fishing still rocks at this time of the year.  Do you like to fish rock piles? Sandy shores? Weed beds? Well don’t worry there are several spots to accommodate anyones style of fishing, who knows you may even pick up a different style of two while you are here!

Is it your first visit at Big Bear Camp? We have you covered, we will show you what we like to use, and where to go. We want to make sure you enjoy our lake as much as we do!

Want to brush up on all the lakes rules and regulations before you get here we are located in Zone 8 in the fishing rules and regulations book set out by the MNFR. 

For your convenience we still sell outdoors cards right at our office.
