East Fish Lake

East Fish Lake is 36.6 hectares with a maximum depth of 9.7 meters and is home to a population of northern pike. The lake lies in a remote location of the Duck Mountain, and therefore receives very little fishing pressure. East Fish Lake is most commonly accessed in the winter as trail conditions are more favorable. Fishing reports from East Fish Lake commonly state that pike fishing was exceptional.

**Due to the nature of difficulty regarding access on backcountry lakes, launch access areas are restricted to small watercraft only.
