Spectacular sport fishing awaits the anglers on a wilderness canoe trip.

We’ll Show You Where The Fish Can Be Found.

Many of Quetico's drinking water lakes are fished only a few times a year. Since all travel is by canoe, fishermen practice catch and release fishing, only keeping what they need to eat. Even trophies are usually released, since it would be impractical to carry them out! Even remote fly in lakes are not as good for fishing as the waters of Quetico, since Quetico supports most of the major freshwater game fish: smallmouth bass, lake trout, walleye, northern pike, and even sturgeon.

Our route planners are experienced fishermen who know every lake in the park! While live bait fish are prohibited in Quetico Park, nightcrawlers and leeches are allowed. Most of our guests use artificial lures. The fishing is good enough, no live bait is really necessary. We have a complete selection in our tackle store. We strongly recommend the use of barbless hooks. We also have License Information available.

World Class Sport Fishing

These Trophies Are Still In The Lakes

World Class Sport fishing for Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Walleye and huge Northern Pike. Hundreds of remote wilderness lakes mean no fishing pressure in "Quetico Park". Artificial lures are all you'll need, so bring flyrod or spinning outfit and we'll be happy to show you what to use, and where to go. Barbless hooks are recommended, and we have a complete tackle shop at our base.

In the “Big Fish” category (according to guest reports), we had some lunkers taken again. Northern Pike - 23 lbs. (taken on Bow Lake); Walleye - 10 lbs. (taken at Dimple Lake); Lake Trout from Gamble Lake - 16 lb.; Smallmouth Bass at Sawbill Bay - 5 lb. Of course, these trophies are still in the lakes waiting for someone to try again next year. Our catch and consume policy has been very successful over the years. We applaud our guests for their commitment to conservation. It was a pleasure working with all of you.
