alabogie Lake is about a 45-minute drive west of Ottawa. It can be approached from Ottawa traveling west via Hwy 17 and Hwy 508 or traveling south via Hwy 7 and Hwy 511. Calabogie Lake is a circular lake with a single basin and a large peninsula extending into it. The lake is relatively fertile with a surface area of about 3,250 acres and a maximum depth of about 100 ft. A large dam is located at Barret Chute and so the lake is a part of the local reservoir system providing hydro-electric power. A public boat launching ramp is available on highway 508 and several resorts allow launching of boats. The lake is large enough that a good north or northwest wind can be extremely dangerous.
Fishing in Calabogie Lake
Game Fish species in the lake include: walleye (pickerel, doré), northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, yellow perch, brown bullhead, channel catfish, rock bass, and American eel (Species list from 1972 survey of MNR). Calabogie lake is known for its walleyes for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources regularly stocks walleye fingerlings. However, smallmouth and largemouth bass are abundant and provide a challenge to any fisherman.
