Canadian Wilderness Fly-in Fishing and Hunting Trips

Bear Baiting has started.

We started our bear baiting in mid July and have made several new stands. We also have changed several single ladder stands to doubles so that leaves just a couple singles left. It’s august 15 and we have 18 baits being hit, some with several different bear hitting. We found some new, fantastic bait this year which makes a big difference. The biggest thing we have learned during our years of bear hunting is that the quality of your bait makes a huge difference. Bear would rather eat natural food unless u have something they just can’t refuse. Bear are actually very picky and we have seen them pick thru certain bait and actually walk away when they don’t like something. Weather is cooling off and it’s starting to feel like hunting weather so we are getting excited up here. Hunting season is our favorite time of year. While we have several nice shooter bear coming in we don’t have any GIANTS hitting yet. We will though, they always take a little while to start hitting. They are always the last to leave the blueberries. So u hunters be practicing with your bows and rifles so u give yourself the least chance of wounding your trophy. Also a BIG thing is to look on the internet at black bear sizes. What is a shooter and what’s not. It’s very difficult to judge the size of the bear when it’s in front of you, even for veteran hunters. We have a couple weeks til our first hunters so there is time for the big boars to start hitting yet. Pray for cool weather!

Cheers, Todd

Late season fishing starting

Temperatures are starting to cool off and night time temps are dropping into lower 50s. That means trout start schooling up which makes them perfect for vertical jigging, big northern drop into deeper ledges and rock piles, walleye start moving deep and will eventually head out over open water. They are still fairly shallow inContinue Reading

June 12 Cold spring

The water temperature is still very cold for this time of year. We had a few hot days but then went right back to cold. That means the fish are fairly shallow yet. Northern have been lethargic due to the water temps but we’ve gotten a couple over 40” and a bunch in the 30s.Continue Reading

June 12 2019

It’s been a very cool spring up here so far. With the exception of a few days in a row near 90 it went right back down to the 50s. Water level is about normal but the trails into portage lakes are a little wet. Things have been going well with a few exceptions. OurContinue Reading

How to fish Atikwa lake early

When ice first goes off Atikwa the best thing to do is fish white 1/8 1/4 oz jig heads with a white twister tail. Cast and slowly reel in or jig aggressively back and enjoy the hit. Fish the mouths of bays, and even back into the bay. They stay in shallow water until itContinue Reading

Beginning of 2019

MAY 15 2019 Jake just got into camp today and found some ice damage on new cabin deck. Ice came off roof and sheared railing completely off. Some large animal chewed a new, big hole into the kitchen but we have had worse damage. Ice went out 6 days ago so that’s about the timeContinue Reading

June 15 2018

Fishing has been hit or miss this last week. Weather has been pretty warm and not much wind. Roy Rosbacka, like usual, did great. His group has been coming for close to 40 years so they know every spot on the lake. He did real well trolling black and white, and orange spoons for LakersContinue Reading

May Fishing report

We have had our first group in camp this week. Very hot weather and the fishing suffered a little bit. The Terry Holloway group was here and they still caught quite a few trout. George Olsen got a 36″ laker not too far from the dock and they had a few other big ones upContinue Reading

May 30

We started late up here due to the late spring. They had a big ice storm in March so clearing the portage lake paths has been a big job. Lots of trees down. This last week has been very hot and humid but now a cold front has come thru and it’s around 60. TheContinue Reading

June cancellations have become catastrophic

Due to several groups changing the dates recently or having different numbers than originally thought, reservations will not be wrote down in the book until $250 per person has been received for 2019. Sorry but absolutely no exceptions. It’s mostly my fault due to being a poor business man and letting people book with noContinue Reading
