Fishing with Pickerel Arm Camp & Ontario Sunset Fly-In's

You can target Walleye and Northern Pike at all lakes.

For Walleye Fishing the lodge suggests a light to medium rod with a reel set up with 6-10 pound line. The best lures to pack include Jigs in the 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2 ounce size in Chartreuse, Yellow, White, Black, and gold. Rubber twister tails area also hot. Little Joes and Lac Seul spinners in the weight forward set up are perfect.

For Northern Pike fishing the lodge suggests a medium to heavy weight rod with 14-20 pound line. Since Northern Pike have over 700 teeth in their large mouths, using steel leaders is recommended. The lodge suggests 9-12 inch steel leaders. In terms of lures Spoons in the 3-4 inch range work in Red/White, Yellow, Black/white, Silver, and Gold tones. If you have access to lures with weed guards those are awesome. You most often find the big Northern Pike lurking in the thick weedy beds in quiet, sheltered bays. Rapalas are known as a Northern Pike's downfall.

If you want an outstanding fishing adventure in a beautiful location, then Pickerel Arm Camp & Ontario Sunset Fly-In's has what you need.
