French River, Ontario (Largemouth Bass)

Share this HotSpot:

Location: French River, ON
GPS: N46° 13.324’ W079° 57.648’
Species: Largemouth Bass

This hotspot is tucked away at the back of a long shallow finger at the top of the French River called Wigwam Bay. We’d highly recommend using the services of a Chaudière Lodge guide; this bay is really off the beaten path.

Not much is known about this area as it does not conform to the normal Walleye-holding structure and cover of the French. The biggest reason is that this is one of the few pieces of water in the entire system that screams Largemouth Bass—you’ll know what we mean when you get there.

Be very careful going in as its extremely shallow weed-choked entrance is like a minefield of wood and rock. But when you get past that it turns into a Largemouth Bass angler’s paradise. Arm yourself with a boatload of weedless topwater baits, as well as the usual flipping jigs and Texas-rigged plastics.
