LITTLE LAKE

Barrie Ontario – East End 2011 Project

‣ Little Lake has been one of the longest running projects in

the Barrie Bassmasters Club.

‣ Each year we remove huge amounts of garbage from the

shorelines of Little Lake.

‣ This small shallow lake offers Bass, Catfish, Carp, Pike and

Crappie with the odd Walleye being caught as well.

Barrie Bassmaster’s installed several spawning nest boxes

several years ago and Bass have used them year after

year.

‣ Even with its huge amount of fishing pressure, Little Lake is

able to produce large bass year after year

LAKE SIMCOE

Barrie Ontario, Kempenfelt Bay 2011 Project

‣ This by far is one of the biggest projects on our list to help

improve fish habitat in Lake Simcoe’s Kempenfelt Bay.

‣ Each year the club collects hundreds of used and dead

Christmas trees from around the area. Trees also donated

by Drysdale Tree Farm help us out as well with this project.

‣ Trees are taken out into the deep shorelines of Kempenfelt

Bay where there might not be any structure and dropped

attached to a concrete block.

‣ Past Videos of the artificial structure show that it is working

as planed. Videos show Bass, Perch, Sunfish and Bluegills

using the trees as protective cover.

‣ Photos and videos of the work with the tree drop can be

seen by clicking on the link here.
