Bear Bay to Umbrella Island's in West Bay of Lake Nipissing

Bear Bay to Umbrella Islands Map

Umbrella Islands lie southeast of Bear Bay approximately 1 mile away. The 2 small islands in West Bay of Lake Nipissing received their name as the result of a tree shaped like an umbrella on the far most east island. This area is awesome for walleyes as you fish from all sides of the 2 islands. On the east side approximately 1,300 feet sits a large boulder home of a lot of Small Mouth Bass.
