Canadian Wilderness Fly-in Fishing and Hunting Trips

Fall is here

As I look out the office window it looks like a November day in Wisconsin. Windy, big waves, cool temps, I love it. Feels like hunting season. I think the 80s are gone for good hopefully. Next week his are all in the 60s so perfect for bear hunting. Fishing should take a little hitContinue 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

Enjoy Mother Nature. Shut your electronics off for once!!

so far it’s been a much cooler than average season. Days in 60s and low 70s and nights in the low 50s. I love it. But now we’re going to see some days in the 80s and sunny. Still pretty wet up here so we don’t need any rain for awhile. Our new freezer isContinue Reading

June 8 2016 fishing report

Fishing has been excellent since we got in here this year. Even the days of huge rains only shut it down for awhile. Lots of walleye being caught in the portage lakes.

June 8 2016 cool days and cold nights

weather up here has been very cool for this time of year. Nights have been in the 30s and 40s and the day’s low 60s. Nice weather but the water temp is taking awhile to warm up. Starting to dry out so the walks to the portage lakes are too bad anymore. Except to BearContinue Reading

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
