There are smallmouth bass,bluegill,northern pike,pan fish and yellow perch all in this area. Lake of the Isles holds large populations of these game fish., and it has a great reputation for its largemouth bass population. Many trophy size bass have been taken in the Lake of the Isles including the St. Lawrence River largemouth bass record. Lake of the Isles brings in pro fishermen and new fisherman from the Thousand Islands region after the season starts around June 21st.
