Walleye Lake Outposts is based out of Kenora in Northwestern Ontario. The lodge sits just under three hours from International Falls. This is a fly-in fishing destination and once you arrive in Kenora they shuttle by plane out to your cottage. If you want a remote fishing experience on a lake that is fish-rich and not heavily populated with fishermen, then this is the spot.

In fact, guests stay in one of the two two-bedroom cottages on the island. Those are aptly named the Eagles' Nest Lodge or the Two Loon Lodge. The cottages feature full kitchens, solar lights, hot and cold running water and comfortable sleeping areas for 2-4 people per cabin. The cabins sit a mile apart so each is private and secure.

Fishing on Walleye Lake

Guests fish from 16 foot Lund boats with motors and fuel included in the cost of your stay. As you might have guessed this is Walleye country. Beyond the Walleye are opportunities to target Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass. This is a catch and release lake and that means that "them thar waters" hold trophy-sized fish.

The fishing season starts Mid-May on the 19th and runs through the end of September. The best fishing months are June and July with August being pretty good too. As the Spring weather warms up and the Walleye have finished their spawning, they head toward the shallower water near shore. That water warms quickly with the rising sun and that is a very pleasing process for Walleye. Walleye also hunt and the shore and weedy areas are full of small fish, amphibians, and aquatic insects. On the hotter days, the fish may migrate to the mid and deep levels of the lake where the water is warm, but not hot.

If you like to fish for big fish, then the biggest ones on the lake are the Northern Pike. You often find these lurking predators in the shallows where the weeds are thick. Mepps spinners, floating Rapalas and spinner harnesses with live bait are good choices. If you are a fly fisherman, then just set up your rod with a dry mouse pattern and jig it over the weeds. Chances are the pike will strike.

For Smallmouth Bass, the bigger bass are lone wolves and territorial. You can find them along points and in area with shelves or structures. If you happen to hook a trophy bass try fishing about 50 yards or so away from that sport. You may find that the Bass's range is about that wide and there you may find its neighbor.
