Smallmouth Bass Lakes in Nova Scotia
« on: November 29, 2011, 10:23:36 PM »
Hey folks, could really use your help and information with a project to update the ongoing public list of smallmouth bass populations within Nova Scotia. The intent here is learn of new lakes/rivers that have them and use that data moving forward as we work with our smallmouth bass poplations.

Here is the current known list as of summer 2011. If you know of another lake or stream/river where bass are present, please add to this thread. Please list the lake name, if known, and the grid of the lake from the NS map book, that would be very useful.

I thank you for yhour help.

I see Waterloo Lake in Annapolis County confirmed in the year 2000.  I caught SMB in 1976 in that lake; I thought that was one of the original lakes stocked by DNR very early on. ??? ???

I talked to a neighbor here who lives on the same lake as I do and claims to have caught a bass.  I have fished the lake twice and haven't caught anything but perch.  Will try again next year.  I will also try Greenwood lake next year as they say there is lots of bass there.  Also I have heard from a few reliable sources that say Alvin Lake (old boy school camp) has bass in it.  All of these lakes in Shelburne County of course.

Yes Leigh there is smallmouth in Lake Alvin as Brud and I caught them there at least 5 years ago. I have also heard of some Lakes people say have Bass in them. Hopefully this year coming we can try to confirm some of these lakes..  I also know for sure that pickeral have been caught in the Roseway River, not sure how far up the system they are. I tell you it will surprise people to see how many lakes in Shelburne County have these fish.

Square Lake and Horse Shoe Lake in Halifax Co. They are close to Fenerty Lake. I have caught bass in them for at least 10 years, and have landed a 21" bass in one of these lakes in the last 5 years.

What is the location of Randalls lake in Cumberland county I see one nar Maitland in Colchester county
Randall's lake is really a "pond" now, and referred to as "Springhill Lakes" It's just outside of Springhill, turn right when you come off the highway, Drive past "The Lamp Cabin Beverage Room"(Top notch watering hole), and drive about a mile, There is a road on the right directly across from the XTR Gas station that leads to the lake. You may need 4x4 in soft months!!!!!

The lake(pond) was stocked in 1990 according to sources( Not that I had anything to do with it..lol), but the lengths and tag #'s may be available if my over flowing brief case will give them up...lol.

There should be some WOPPERS in there if a man+a crawdad+some fresh shiners 2" was fished along the stick reeds on a slip bobber( Not that I've ever used live bait...). on the "lee side" of the pond.

"Big Lake"which is a hop skip and jump from The Springhill Lakes was also "illegally stocked" by "mavericks" in the late 80's as well, and from what I hear on the street, are 5+ pounders living in there as well.(green pumpkin tubes might work on a 1/8 oz head...lol). :angel10:

Anyone know if there are bass in Fox Point Lake near Halifax? I'm looking at renting a cottage next summer and there was an attractive one on this lake but was curious about the fishing.
Thanks

Sorry, missed this question Rick. Personally not sure of this but it's location could prevent you from fishing it either way, where is it?
