Mazinaw is one of Ontario's Deepest Lakes. It has an average depth of over 100feet. it is an Oligotropic lake so there are pleanty of exposed rock outcrops and boulder feilds, aswell as hard or rocky bottom. The lake is not busy during shoulder season and has very little boat traffic with the acception of the peak periods during the summer. boat traffic will affect fish activity. Target this lakes population of Lake trout in the spring in shallow water or troll in deeper water. this is definatly a lake that requires a down rigger or weighted fishing line while trolling. flat line trolling is fine when fish are active in shallow areas of the lake. The lake is divided into two sections lower Mazinaw is much more consistant in depth and shallower aswell. most of the fishing action takes place close to shore. between 10 and 50 feet of water. search for stucture or for suspended fish actily feeding on baitfish. THe area of the lake on both sides of the Narrows entering lower Mazinaw receives the most fishing pressure. Walleye/Pike and Small mouth bass are taken here. The land O' Lakes region is fairly remote and less populated then other parts of Ontario like the Haliburtan Highlands or Muskoka Lakes. its about three hours from Toronto and two hours south of Ottawa. this lake is great for oportunities if your passing through.
