Eagle Lake

Having produced a 61-pound nine-ounce muskie—a former Ontario record—Eagle Lake is considered by many anglers to be home to the next world-record muskie. Located west of Dryden, Ontario, this big lake is full of shallow and mid-depth weeds and reeds, making it a popular destination for muskie hunters who like to cast giant surface baits and double-bladed Cowgirl-style lures. There’s also superb fishing for pike, smallmouth bass and walleye. Local muskie expert Cal Ritchie can guide you to a leviathan’s lair.
