Limerick Lake and its four connecting lakes produce some of the best Southeastern Ontario bass fishing known to exist. With the popularity of catch and release fishing, fishermen are again enjoying a level of success not seen since the 40's and 50's. Six pound and over Large and Smallmouth Bass are not uncommon.

Long before bass fishing became famous, the early visitors to Big Salmon Lake (now Limerick Lake) were catching naturally producing Lake Trout in record numbers and incredible size. With careful management by the MNR, the Lake Trout fishing in Limerick Lake remains among the best.
