Patterson Lake is 20-miles long and has Lake Trout to 20 pounds and Pike to 25 pounds. Naomi Lake is 2-miles long and a great place for Walleye to around 7-pounds and 20-pound Pike. Vermeersch Lake is accessible by quad and a good place for Walleye in the 5-pound range and Pike in the 25-pound range. Wickencamp Lake is accessible by Quad and offers Walleye to 8-pounds and Pike in the 10-pound range.

The Lodge provides Boats and fuel and boat equipment including life jackets. You will need to bring your own fishing gear and a fishing license.

Lodging with Forest Lake Outfitters

means hot water, private bathrooms with shower, a full kitchen with a fridge, propane stoves for cooking and wood and propane heaters/stoves. There is no cellular service here as the lodge is very remote. There is a satellite phone at the main lodge.

You will need to buy groceries before you leave on the plane or before you leave La Loche. Also, make sure to fill up your vehicle before you leave La Loche as that is the LAST fuel between you and the camp and you will need enough to get back. The lodge recommends buying groceries in Meadow Lake if you are driving.

Overall, expect a quality place to stay, warm cabins, and plenty of access to good fishing.
