Waterway: Baptiste Lake

Baptiste Lake is located in the granite highlands south of Algonquin Provincial Park. The lake gets its name from Algonquin Chief Jean Baptiste, believed to be the first permanent resident. 
 
Baptiste Lake and its surroundings are situated within the Grenville Province of the Canadian Shield, which is a northeasterly trending belt about 250 miles wide (from upper New York State to just south of Sudbury) and 1,200 miles long, extending from Lake Huron to the Labrador coast. A continental collision deformed the crust of the earth about a billion years ago, pushing up a mountain range along a line running roughly through Parry Sound, Haliburton, Bancroft, Pembroke and on to the Gatineau Hills of Quebec. This mountain chain, once as high as the Rocky Mountains, has been reduced by erosion to what are today the highlands around Baptiste Lake.

Directions:
Baptiste Lake is easily accessed northwest of Bancroft.  From Bancroft follow Highway #62 north and look for Baptiste Lake Road South (County Road #5)  or Baptiste Lake Road North.  Both roads lead to boat launch facilities.
 
Fishing:
Anglers will find a wide collection of sportfish including lake trout, bass, muskellunge, northern pike, walleye, perch and pumpkinseed sunfish.  Lake trout and walleye are still the number one sportfish with anglers here. Smallmouth and largemouth bass generally provide the most action, as the numerous weed beds, underwater log and rock structures make ideal habitat for both bass species.  The muskie population is regarded as healthy and if this your type of angling, this lake can be very rewarding.
