Manitoulin Island is renowned for it’s bountiful fishing. Here at Bayside Resort many fish species can be found such as Rainbow Trout, Pink Salmon, Cisco and Smelts. The fishing season for Rainbow Trout is open year-round and we have a new dock on-site for guests to utilize.

Our surroundings provide excellent fishing opportunities at every time of year (ex. Rainbow Trout, Pink Salmon, Pike, Cisco and other species) – see ‘Zone 14’ fishing area.  Our hot fishing spot was recently featured on the ‘Canadian Sport Fishing TV’ show and again will be featured in new shows airing in 2014 including the Ice Fishing Derby which we have been hosting on site for the past three consecutive years.


New boat docking is available as of 2014 for your own boats at no extra fees.  A boat launch site is close by, but not on site.  For added convenience we also have a modern fish cleaning station here. Boat and motor rentals are the only thing that’s extra at Bayside Resort. For more details on the rental of a boat or for details on fishing charters and guided tour options please refer to the ‘Fishing’ link on this site.
