Temagami Back Lakes Fishing Adventures

Herridge Lake connects to four other lakes which offer remote fishing in unspoiled waters. Expect to fish for Pickerel, Pike, Lake Trout, Small Mouth Bass, and Whitefish. As you boat back into these back lakes, expect to leave behind civilization. It is quiet, peaceful, and the area is teeming with wildlife.

It is along the margins of these lakes where you will often find the Walleye. In the weedy water and along the plant infested bays you will find Northern Pike. For Small Mouth, Bass, the sunken logs and rocky outcrops are perfect habitats for bass.

There is more to do here than just fishing. For kids, the play area and beach offer a nice place to burn off energy. For families, there is a communal bonfire pit where the kids can roast hotdogs and marshmallows. Offshore, there is a diving platform with a small water slide where older kids and young adults enjoy the fun. Other events include fish fries and wildlife viewing. This is an area that is rich in wildlife.

If you like to hunt, the is the place to come, especially for moose season. Hunters are trekked to remote hunting areas via boat by experienced guides.

Overall, expect a home-like feeling to Papa Johns Cottages. The staff is friendly. The guides put you right into the thick of it whether you are fishing for trophy Walleye or a trophy moose.
