Pigeon Lake

PIGEON LAKE is part of the largest body of water in the KAWARTHAS. This lake is unique because it is the only one in the Kawartha chain that has access to six other lakes without having to lock. A boat ride on Pigeon Lake can take you to Little and Big Bald Lakes and Buckhorn Lake through Gannons Narrows. From there you can travel to Chemong Lake and Upper Chemong Lake. Pigeon Lake also touches Bobcageon, traveling south as far as Omemee. Pigeon Lake is 17 miles long averaging between 1 and 2 miles wide. The big Island situated in the middle of the lake is its largest island. It has many anchorages for recreational boaters one of the larger lakes in the Kawartha Lakes chain. It is fed by Sturgeon Lake to the west, and the Pigeon River to the south, as well as the Bald Lake chain to the north-east. Downstream, it feeds Upper Buckhorn Lake through the Gannon's Narrows. Deepest water sounding is 57 feet off Lancaster Point in the north. The southern portion of the lake is very weedy and shallow. The middle section averages 8 to 10 feet, with numerous weed flats. The northern section has limited weed growth, but defined rocky structures and deeper water. In the first half of the fishing season, walleyes are the primary target on this lake; however, in the latter half of the season, this lake receives very heavy muskie pressure, which peaks during the month of September, where muskie anglers outnumber all other anglers. Launching on this lake is done at the public ramp on Riverside Drive on the Big Bob River (downstream from the locks) in Bobcaygeon Its accessibility and its size makes Pigeon Lake a favorite among fishermen and boaters everywhere. The beauty and serenity of the Kawartha Lakes has been attracting people for over a century.
