Located about 20 km north of Peterborough, Ontario, Lower Buckhorn is one of most overlooked Bass/Muskie fisheries in southern Ontario. It is a great Smallmouth lake, Muskie and Walleye is what Lower Buckhorn is known for. But if you want to catch fish, target the bass, both Smallmouth and Largemouth and you will catch fish. Ensure you have a good quality hydrographic chart before heading out on this lake, there are a lot of shollow areas with stumps, as well as a few shoals.
