Who We Are

Welcome to Little Vermilion, the crown jewel of Ontario’s eleven-lake system. Stretching over sixteen miles, Little Vermilion is a stunning narrow lake with both upper and lower sections. Its spring-fed, deep, and cold waters, along with numerous bays, reefs, and deep weed beds, create perfect conditions for thriving fish habitats.

Our lake is home to a rich variety of fish, including whitefish, cisco, suckers, perch, various minnows, and crayfish. Thanks to these abundant resources and the unpressured waters of Little Vermilion, we offer some of the best sportfishing experiences in Canada, year after year.
