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

Fishing has been good lately. Dean, Evan, josh and steve from Ohio caught their limit of everything like usual. Made us a great steak dinner and helped us drag a bear out of the woods. Thanks to all of them for the help but especially the very young at heart, strong as a bull andContinue Reading

We just got done with a bad week of fishing. Seemed like everything was just following or not hitting at all. Pretty much the hottest water temp of the year always coincides with a drop in the fishing for a week or 2. Musky have been just following, but lots of them. I guided theContinue Reading

Its been very nice weather up here for this time of year. Not too hot and humid. The lake trout are still hitting jigging but trolling seems to be working a little better.

Our first guests of the year left yesterday and they all did very good. The frank Hansen group had the best fishing of all the 6 years they have come up, with Ralph Oestmann taking a big 32″ laker right by camp in the evening. Iwas sad to see Frank leave since it was theContinue Reading

First fish report 2014

Water is extremely cold due to late ice out. That means trout can be found anywhere in the water column, walleye are just starting to spawn and northern are very lethargic. We’ve done very little fishing but Eric has been catching trout out in front of camp on small crank baits. Can even get troutContinue Reading
