Lake Trout are everywhere May 30

Fishing has been excellent! Lakers are all over the place, this time of year they can be found anywhere in the water column from right at the top to down 80′. The more active ones are from the top to 20′. ¬†Wally divers in bubble gum color that dive to 15′ and gold and orangeContinue Reading

May 30 2016 Lots of rain lately

We have had a lot of rain in the last week but still the fire ban is on. The MNR has been on so many large fires west and north of here I think they want to get caught up before they take the ban off. The woods is soaking wet so I can’t imagineContinue Reading

Terry Holloway group did great on Lakers

the Terry Holloway group from Minnesota did their usual great job catching lakers on Atikwa. They’ve come for years now and really know the lake. We like them cuz they Love Lake Trout and know how to get them. Not that it’s too hard on Atikwa in May. One person in the group caught 41Continue Reading

The camp is up and running. Always takes awhile to get all the boats and motors ready and everything repaired that got broke over the winter. A bear was in camp and made a big mess for us after we left last year. It got into everything. We’re lucky he didn’t do more damage. WaterContinue Reading

May 10 2016 Extreme forest fire danger

The ice is off and Jake and I are getting ready to get into camp. We are currently waiting for our permits that will let us into Canada and then permits to get to camp. We hate this time of year having to deal with government regulations and people who don’t care if we’re thereContinue Reading

Early spring is almost for sure

The winter in NW Ontario has bee extremely mild. There was still open water at Christmas time and I’m told there is only about 18″ of ice on the lakes now. That’s less than 1/2 of a normal winter at this time. Early ice out means fish should be moving out of the extreme shallowsContinue Reading

2015 fishing was excellent

We had a lot of great fishing up at Atikwa this past year. Some of the best fishing in June was had by the Rodger Futrell group. They caught tons of trout again and have got trout jigging down to a science now. They have all their “spots” now over the last 10 years andContinue Reading

2016 is filling up fast

Usually this is kind of the dead time of year when we get few people booking early. This year has been completely different. We’ve had our regulars booking super early and quite a few who have been up before but due to the economy hasn’t been able to come lately. We already have most ofContinue Reading

May 27

Ice has been off of Atikwa for over a month this year, completely different from last year. Jake reports the opening of the camp went about as good as you can get. Not much broke over the winter and the animals were kind to us and kept the cabins and lodge alone. Also a pleasantContinue Reading
