Fishing and boating are year-round activities at Big Canoe with three mountain lakes—Lake Petit, Lake Sconti, Lake Disharoon–and a number of pristine streams hosting a variety of water borne activities. Lake Petit is regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout, Bass, Crappie and Bream. Fishing permits are required to fish on a daily, weekly or annual basis.
Only electric engines are permitted on Big Canoe Lakes to avoid fuel and noise pollution. Electric powered pontoon boats, jon boats, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are available to rent, and approved private boats can be launched at the Marina.
