Winter Aerial View
Home to a provincial fish sanctuary, Nogies Creek is one of the many beautiful watercourses in the Kawarthas. Named for Peter Nogee of Curve Lake who hunted and fished in the area, Nogies Creek winds through mixed forests from Bass Lake to Pigeon Lake. There is a boat launch about midway down, and a parking lot near the north bridge.

Each spring there is a beautiful little waterfall that descends from the hills above Bass Lake into Nogies Creek… but it doesn’t last long after the snow is gone!
