Canadian Wilderness Fly-in Fishing and Hunting Trips

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

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

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

Cinnamon/blonde bear taken! Plus more

The last 2 weeks have been excellent bear hunting. Pete Hohn and Dez Weber each arrowed nice bear and made it easy on us making perfect shots. Pete’s had a nice white patch on it, perfect for a full body mount. They saw a few other bear but had some weather issues to begin theContinue 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
