Family Adventure Vacations
A quiet and comfortable wilderness vacation resort
on a remote island, accessible by train or float plane, in Northern
and Northern Pike fishing is comfortable and easy at our island
resort in the remote wilderness of Northern Ontario Canada. Lake
Wabatongushi is a prolific Walleye and Northern Pike lake with
an abundance of great structure. Catching shore lunch or your
fish dinner is relatively easy and you have the added bonus of
numerous opportunities to see wildlife such as Moose, Black Bear,
Loons and Bald Eagles.
Lake is a relatively shallow lake for Northern Ontario with an
average depth of 17'. It's 10,000 acre area contains an abundance
of varied structure such as rocky reefs, sandbars and weed beds
allowing easy fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike and Perch. The
extensive shallow bays are ideal spawning areas for northern pike
while the many rocky reefs and 27 rivers and streams make optimum

June then September. The water is cooler in the spring and late

shoals, usually less than 15' of water. During the summer months
the walleye tend 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 them in less than 25' of
best months to fish for Northern Pike are July and August followed
by September. The weed beds are up in July and August and they
are looking for food to grow. 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 lartge plugs tend to
