There is no better way to experience Ontario’s vast wilderness and incredible fishing then spending a week at a remote wilderness outpost camp in Northwestern Ontario. Fishing is incredible. Both of our outpost lakes are stuffed with Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass and Perch. Vaughn Lake and Lynx Lake are both located at the south-end of Lac Seul and north of Dryden Ontario.
Fifty to one hundred Walleyes can be caught in a single day by one fisherperson with some reaching 10-pounds. Both our outpost lakes are Walleye factories. Northern Pike reach great sizes with 20-pounders being caught-&-released with the biggest in recent years reaching 30-pounds. Smallmouth Bass are plentiful in all sizes with some reaching 6-pounds. Perch are also common and reach the size of Jumbo Perch. With a sports license, you can bring fifty Perch Home.
We also offer big game adventures. Moose Hunting and Black Bear Hunting take place at our Lynx Lake Outpost in WMU 5. Moose in Ontario are plentiful with some Moose reaching 1500 pounds. Black Bears are common in the 175 to 250-pound range with some exceeding 400-pounds.
