Ontario Whitefish

Quite possibly one of the most overlooked fish in many Ontario lakes is the Whitefish. Known as a hard fighter the Whitefish is quite popular among those who ice fish. Abundant in deeper lakes they are also popular table fare. In smaller sizes they are food for many larger predators but adult Whitefish provide anglers with excellent action as their average size range from 4 to 12 pounds. 

Olive green in colour they are known for silver sides and large scales with a narrow mouth.



The current Ontario record for the Chinook is set at 14.77 lbs.
