Canning Lake

Canning Lake Haliburton MapCanning lake is one of the five lakes comprising a chain that extends from Head Lake in Haliburton village at one end almost to the village of Minden, with Canning Lake, at the opposite end.

Canning Lake is located northeast of Minden.  To find the lake, follow Highway 35 north from Minden to Highway 21 and head east.  There are several access roads that branch south off of Highway 21, including County Road 17, towards Canning Lake.

Canning Lake joins Lake Kashagawigamog at the village of Ingoldsby.

Waterfront property on this premier 5 lake chain is very sought after in the Haliburton & Minden Real Estate Market.

Lakes of the Chain:


This popular cottage destination lake is probably better know for its recreation opportunities rather than its fishing.  Bass fishing can be fair to good at times for smallmouth and largemouth bass.  Other species present in Canning Lake include walleye, lake trout and muskellunge.  Fishing success for these three species is generally limited.
