Fishing with Rusty Myers Fly-In Fishing

Expect big fat Walleye and long lean Northern Pike. These remote lakes see only occasional action and the fish grow big. If your aim is to find trophy-sized fish with plenty of spunk, fight, and tenacity then this is one of the best opportunities to make that happen. For fishing supplies, the lodge suggests two rods. A light action for Walleye with 10-pound line and a medium action rod for Northern Pike with 15-pound line. If you do not want to deal with bringing worms or live bait across the border then let the lodge know so they can provide that for you. It is your responsibility to bring all of your own fishing gear and a life jacket that is Canadian approved.

The fishing here is an adventure but not hard work. While you are on your own to fish from each outpost, the lodge makes it easy to make that happen. Plus, the fish are numerous so these lakes make an outstanding destination for fishing.

Some of the outposts work well for corporate groups, others are more geared towards families or small groups of fishing buddies. Expect that the cabins will be clean, stocked, and comfortable and the fishing fairly easy, even for Trophy Walleye or Northern Pike.
