The Wilderness Air Escapes serves 15 catch-and-release outpost lakes and 18 conservation lakes. Guests of the lodge come for the amazing fishing and end up falling in love with the natural setting. The fishing here is world-class and the cabins are clean, comfortable and relaxing. It is the nature, however, that will get you from the lone and hauntingly beautiful call of the loons to watching eagles snatch fish out of the lakes. This is a place you will remember for all of the right reasons — Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskie, Smallmouth Bass, and Trout.

Lodging with Wilderness Air Escapes

Each of the outpost cabins has its own private dock. The cabins come with fully equipped kitchens, solar lighting, paper goods, firewood, hot and cold running water, linens and bedding, including comforters. Outdoors is a BBQ and fish cooker. Some outposts offer saunas, indoor or outdoor bathrooms, and satellite phones.

Expect to find beautiful cabins with a mixture of modern and rustic conveniences. The cabins are always clean, comfortable, and cozy.

Fishing with Wilderness Air Escapes

Guests fish from 14-foot boats with 8-9.9 hp motors. The boats feature padded seats, landing nets, anchors, and life jackets. The thing that makes this lodge a great destination is the large number of lakes that they service. These are not just lakes, most are basically untouched and with the conservation policy in effect, the fishing here for big fish is easy.

If you are interested in big Walleye, then consider any of the outpost cabins on Devlin Lake, Pilot Lake, Portal Lake, or Wasa Lake. The average Walleye is around four pounds with opportunities to hit the 10-pound mark.

If you like to fish for trout then Confusion Lake is the place to go. Keep in mind that the record for lake trout in Ontario is 63 pounds. So expect big fish.

For those anglers who want to target Smallmouth bass, the trophies are at Campfire Lake, O-Nee-Gum Lake, and Crooked Lake.

For those fishermen who are patient and methodical, there are Muskie fishing opportunities here. The record for Muskie in Canada is 68 pounds and that fish was landed in Northwest Ontario. If Muskie are your game, head to Confusion Lake.

For the big, fat Northern pike head out to Pilot Lake, Sup Lake and O-Nee-Gum Lake.

If you want big fish... this is the place to be.
