St. Mary Lake, Salt Spring Island, Canada for Bass Fishing Source: Fishing with Rod

If you intend to visit Salt Spring Island, you will probably be visiting for a couple of activities. Other than just healthy living, you will enjoy every moment you spend in the art studios. What’s more, there will be fishing and lots of it. These days, this spot is considered one of the top recreational destinations in and around British Columbia. You can enjoy kayaking, sightseeing, cycling and charter fishing.

Getting to St. Mary Lake on Salt Spring Island is part of the adventure. You have three options from where you can take a ferry: Tsawwassen, Nanaimo, or Victoria. All these points will get you to Salt Spring Island where you will have to head to the island’s northern section. While there, you can start seeing the lake along North End road. It is more fun to travel using a boat, although you can travel by road along Tripp Road.

There are many fish species in this lake; the smallmouth bass fish species forms the largest type. The smallmouth bass spawn routinely, and they spend much of their lifetime in the shallow waters of the lake. They migrate to deeper regions of the lake during late spring until early fall as the waters become warmer.

Canada has the best spots where you can enjoy bass fishing. However, at St. Mary Lake, you will enjoy rocky drop-offs, fallen trees, and thick weed mats where the bass hide. In this lake, there is plenty of largemouth and smallmouth bass.
