Walleye fishing vacations and Northern Pike fishing vacations in Ontario Canada is relaxing, comfortable and easy at our secluded island vacation lodge and resort in the remote Canadian wilderness of Northern Ontario Canada. Lake Wabatongushi is a prolific Walleye and Northern Pike fishing lake with an abundance of great fishing habitat. Catching shore lunch or your fish dinner is relatively easy and you have the added bonus of numerous opportunities to see and photograph wildlife such as Moose, Black Bear, Loons and Bald Eagles.
Wabatongushi Lake is a relatively shallow and friendly fishing lake for Northern Ontario Canada with an average depth of 17'. It's 10,000 acre area contains an abundance of varied fish structure such as rocky reefs, sandbars and weed beds allowing easy fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike and Perch. The extensive shallow bays are ideal fish spawning areas for northern pike while the many rocky reefs and 27 rivers and streams make optimum walleye fish spawning areas.
The best vacation months to fish for Walleye are May, followed by June then September. The water is cooler in the spring and late summer making the walleyes more aggressive. Fishing first thing in the spring the Walleyes fishing tends to be best the river mouths and relatively shallow shoals, usually less than 15' of water. During the summer vacation months the walleye fishing tends to be a little lazier but there is still no problem catching plenty of fish. A lot of the summer Walleyes are in the deep edges of the weed beds. In the fall the walleyes go a little deeper although we still mostly catch walleyes in less than 25' of water.
The best vacation months to fish for Northern Pike are July and August followed by September. Fishing when the abundant weed beds are up produces lots of Northern Pike fishing action in July and August and the Northern Pike are looking for food to grow. A great idea is to take breaks to enjoy our great Jumbo Perch fishing in the reed beds as well. May and June, the Northern Pike are hungry but there are no weed beds to concentrate their population. During the summer we have a lot of fun with surface and shallow water baits. Fly fishing for Northern Pike over the weed beds with with long streamers or bunny bugs is a blast. In the spring and fall trolling with the deeper running large plugs tends to be a better fishing technique for Northern Pike.
Our 18' wooden fishing boats are hand built for us out of cedar and oak. They are spacious, stable, comfortable and quiet. Each fishing boat is fully equipped with an environmentally friendly 9.9 hp Evinrude 4-stroke outboard motor, Humminbird fish finder, 2 swivel cushion boat seats on pedestals, anchor, paddles, emergency kit and life jackets. A Minnkota electric trolling motor makes fishing easier and more effective. Trolling motors for fishing are included with our American Plan fishing vacation packages and is an extra with our Housekeeping fishing vacation packages or Housekeeping with Dinners fishing vacation packages.
Although catch and release fishing is not mandatory, we strongly promote conservation of fishing quality. We especially like to have the larger Walleye and Northern Pike released as these are almost entirely our healthiest and best spawning female fish. We have a catch and release fishing program where we reward the efforts of our guests in maintaining the high quality Walleye fishing and Northern Pike fishing on Lake Wabatongushi.
At our remote Canadian fishing resort we offer very comfortable accommodations delicious meals and enthusiastic service.
