Based in Ear Falls Ontario, our beautiful fly-in outposts are remote but far from rustic. With wooden walkways from the door to the large floating docks and fully equipped with solar lights, running water, generator electricity, propane appliances and indoor showers ensure all the comforts of home.
Now with two modern locations to choose from, we offer exceptional Walleye, Northern Pike and Lake Trout fishing from the finest water bodies in Northwestern Ontario. Our locations are private, secluded and we are the only outfitter on each of our lakes.
We understand how precious your vacation time is, and we aim to provide your best fishing trip yet. All of our equipment is of the highest quality, from the boats & motors, generators and facilities.
Please take the time to explore our website, and give us a call anytime to discuss your next Canadian vacation.
We use only 14' Lund aluminum boats. We've found these to be the most stable and safe boats available today. All boats are equipped with a safety kit, seat cushions, unlimited gas, landing nets, etc.
Although we do have a supply of life jackets on hand, we encourage you to bring along your own. PFD's do not need to be worn in the boat, but they do need to be present.
We operate new Yamaha 9.9 and 15 hp four stroke outboards on all our boats. They are quiet, simple to use and are matched well for the boats.
In addition to beautiful cabins, a pristine area and nice boats, we have the benefit of a screened in fish cleaning building on site. Complete with solar lighting and running water, the days of cleaning your fish outside with the mosquitoes are over. (Tully, scheduled for Darkwater Spring 2021)
Nice boats and motors don't go far without gas. We offer unlimited gas for all boats, with the convenience of a large fuel tank on site.
When flying in, you will be provided with a large, clean cooler full of ice to keep your beverages chilled.
Propane refrigerators and freezers add to the convenience, eliminating any perishable food concerns and allows you to freeze your fish to bring home.
Propane appliances, fish fryers, BBQ, and a large, complete kitchen round out cooking necessities.
For those that may require electricity for CPAP's, charging devices, etc, we supply a quiet and reliable generator on site complete with plug-ins in each room.
In order to be best prepared for your trip, we suggest you bring along;
- Fishing gear - medium / medium heavy rods with 12-20 lb line (Trout & Northern) and 6-8 lb line for Walleye
- Supply of tackle
- Sleeping bags/pillows/linens/towels
- Food, drinks and condiments
- Outdoor and rain gear
Tackle options vary somewhat between species. Here's what we suggest:
Lake Trout - 2-3" trolling spoons such as Little Cleos, 5 of Diamonds or Sutton's. 3/4 oz jigs and sonars are also effective mid season.
Walleye - Nothing beats a 1/4 - 3/8 oz jig and minnow. Colour combinations of yellow/orange/green are irresistible.
Northern Pike - Rapalas, jerk baits, topwaters and jigs are all highly effective throughout the season. There are no wrong answers when targeting these aggresive trophys.
Your remote cabin comes fully equipped with all cooking utensils, dishes, cutlery, coffee pot, etc. The kitchen rivals that of most homes, with the addition of a beautiful lake view!
Solar lighting, hot water and a wood heat ensure the utmost in comfort.
Boats are fully equipped with seat cushions, paddles, nets, safety kits and anchors.
Tom and I wanted to thank you again for the great 8-night fly-in trip. The lakes we’re beautiful, the outposts were clean and comfortable, and boats/motors were trouble free. Most importantly, the fishing was excellent! The moose and caribou sightings were an added bonus.
Your enthusiasm, attention to detail and customer focus were outstanding. We would happily return in the future as well as refer others to you.
I attached a couple of photos from our trip below. Excellent memories.
Best of luck with your new lodge and continued success with the outposts.
Having been on a number of fishing trips over the years, both drive in lodges and fly-in outposts, I am happy to tell you that Northland has been by far the best yet. We fished both Tully and Darkwater on a split trip, and picking my favourite would be like picking your favourite kid! The cabins, equipment and most importantly the fishing was outstanding. We will be back!!
Best fishing trip, ever!! After years of fishing Canada, I caught my personal best Northern this trip. Loved it.
I've been on many fly-in and drive-in trips throughout Canada, and I can tell you that Tully Lake is ten times better than anywhere I've been yet. Coming back every year.
Attached is an excellent article that addresses a number of Lake Trout fishing questions.
