Canadian Wilderness Fly-in Fishing and Hunting Trips

Category Archives: Fishing Reports

Start of Season

season has started and the first guests left yesterday. Terry Holloways group caught about 400 trout and some nice sized pike. They’re almost exclusively after trout and they do great year after year. This year the average size was bigger than normal they said. They like to troll but if you want to get bigger numbers you want to jig for trout. The slot in front of camp is filling up with trout and the bay near Head bay is really full of them. Nobody has fished walleye yet but they are for sure in their post spawn pattern. We had a really early spring here so everything is a bit later than usual. Water temp is still cool though so trout can be caught anywhere in the water column from right on surface to 80′. As the water warms it will concentrate them more and the jigging will get fantastic. Northern will be at the mouths of the bays, not way back in them. Rock piles, points and sunken islands are best. Walleye, go to the portage lakes. We have 2 new motors coming next week for them. Water level is just about perfect. Watch out for the rocks!

September fishing

now that cool temps are here it should finally make the lakers more aggressive. We’ve found giant schools of them but thy have been hitting slow. Had some great catches but not as many as usual. Northerns have been doing well and the bigger ones getting caught deeper. Marv Burd from California caught his biggestContinue Reading

Water temp is starting to inch upward but still way behind what’s normal for this time of year. Northern are still in shallower water and not up on the reefs in big numbers yet. Walleye on the main lake has been good for Atikwa lake standards. We don’t get numbers here but do get someContinue 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
