Sparrow lake ice fishing

Trenanthia Cottage is on Sparrow Lake near Gravenhurst, Muskoka which is an excellent fishing lake.  Fancy catching a 6 pound Bass, Pickerel or Walleye? How about a 14 pound Northern Pike? Ever wrestled a 5 foot long Muskie? These are some of the great specimens of Sparrow Lake.

Want to know what fish are in Sparrow Lake?
