Part of the Tri-Lakes Complex (Chemong, Buckhorn and Pigeon Lakes) east of Bobcaygeon, Ontario
A large recreational lake in the Kawartha region of south-central Ontario, part of the Trent-Severn Waterway. The lake serves residents and vacationers year-round and is popular with anglers and boaters. The river and Gannons narrows are speed controlled. Bass, Pickerel or Muskie are abundant. The town of Bobcageon overlooks its western shore through which Lock #32 of the waterway egresses.
Pigeon Lake is 17 miles long averaging between 1 and 2 miles wide. Big Island situated in the middle of the lake is its largest island. It has many anchorages for recreational boaterIs 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 and humps. The northern section has limited weed growth, but very 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 by up to 4 to 1. This lake is considered one of the most prolific Muskie lakes in the Kawarthas, and has become a "numbers" lake, rather than a trophy lake. Fish in the upper 30 pound range (50" plus) are still possible, but have become very difficult to catch due to the clear water and heavy fishing pressure. Anglers trolling open deep water have an outside shot at a 40 pounder in the mid 50" range. Casters will generally outfish trollers 3 to 1, but the trollers will generally produce the larger fish. Fishing the sunrise and sunset bite is one good way to avoid the fishing pressure on this lake, which also sees very heavy boat traffic throughout the summer. Launching on this lake is done at the public ramp on Front Street E. on the Big Bob River (downstream from the locks) in Bobcaygeon.
