Air-Dale Fishing is located in Wawa, Ontario and is a five-hour drive from Thunder Bay. This is a fly-out fishing and hunting organization and for fishermen, that means pristine lakes with amazing fishing opportunities.

These guys have cabins set up on a long list of lakes. Expect to find snug cabins with all of the tools needed to enjoy a fishing trip you will remember for years. Those include refrigerators and kitchens, picnic areas, and fire pits. Most cabins sleep 4-8 people with a few that are suitable for 2-4 person groups. Some hold as many as 12 people.

Fishing with Air Dale Operating & Outfitting

The trick to picking the right location is to figure out what types of fish you want to target. All of the cabins offer Walleye and Northern Pike, but a few others add to that list with species such as Perch, Whitefish, Speckled Trout, and Lake Trout. Some lakes have all of those species while others may just have Walleye and Northern Pike.

Fred Lake and John's Lake offer the most variety of fish to target. Here you have access to Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch, and Whitefish with Lake Trout available on the portage lakes. Both of the cabins on these lakes sleep 4-8 guests.

Nameigos also offers Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch and Whitefish with access to portage lakes. The big difference here is that the cabin sleeps up to 12 people.

The best lake for smaller groups, those 2-4 people, is Mank Lake where you have access to Walleye, Northern Pike, and Whitefish. For those of you who love Trout fishing then Missing Lake is a smaller lake that offers amazing Speckled Trout fishing, but that's all that is in the water there.

As you can see, picking the right lake is important to the quality of the fishing you find here. The benefit of choosing Outpost Camps Inc. is the long list of lakes. The fact that they offer remote fishing on well kept and stocked lakes is just an added bonus. Expect excellent fishing on whichever lake you choose, the only concern you should have is the species of fish present. Otherwise, the fishing is good.

  • Excellent get away in northern Ontario without having to go too far. Owners are always available and go above and beyond to ensure you are taken care of. Was a great spot to relax and wind down on our honeymoon after a very busy wedding.

  • Our stay at Air Dale Lodge was absolutely incredible! Located by a picturesque lake, this peaceful getaway provided the perfect setting for relaxation. We enjoyed nightly fires by the lake, creating a serene ambiance. The dining experience was exceptional, with delicious dinners and breakfasts that delighted our taste buds. The accommodations were comfortable, offering lovely lake views. The welcoming family who runs the lodge made us feel like part of their own family throughout our stay. Highly recommended for a rejuvenating retreat with a personal touch! It truly felt like home.

  • When booking reservations on our trip around Lake Superior, we decided to stay here instead of a hotel in Wawa. We weren't disappointed. This is a nice resort in a remote part of Canada. Our cabin was one of the more rustic ones. Some of the cabins were remodeled and more modern. The bathroom was small, but useable, and a few of the towels were a little gray, but in general the cabin was clean. The TV in our room didn't have good reception, but we also weren't there to watch TV. We had picked up some groceries from town (beware the only grocery store closes early) and grilled a nice dinner for ourselves. We enjoyed eating out on the 3 season porch, and siting there at night protected from bugs. We were disappointed that the lodge was closed most of the time we were there, but the host was accessible and very responsive via text messages. We even got a tour of their seaplane because my son was interesting in becoming a pilot. Overall we had a great experience here.

  • Very nice location. Various cabin sizes to accommodate numerous people. Lodge has a great northern Ontario feel. Great food as well! Also serves as a great over night spot if you booked a fly in outpost camp.

  • A group of us have done a fly-in fishing trip with Air-Dale for many years going to several of their locations. Since Jenn and Martin purchased the operation they have worked hard to improve the outpost fishing experience. Recent updates include new Bamboo Mattresses, solar power and satellite internet in some of the camps. Jenn and Martin are very helpful in providing maps of the lakes, noted fishing spots and input on what to bring as well as accommodating special requests. Camps are very well equipped and comfortable in gorgeous nature settings. They are great people and wonderful hosts!
