Fishing, Hunting & Travel Map


If you haven’t fished at Knobby’s, you are in for a treat! Not only does Knobby’s Fly-In Fishing have fantastic Walleye, Northern and quality accommodations, but Knobby’s has the years of experience to back it up. We don’t just drop you off at an outpost and forget about you. We fly in every two days (weather permitting) to bring you extra ice and other supplies that you may need.

All of our cabins, but one are located on the Cat River System. These lakes have rapids flowing in and out of them. This moving water stirs up feed for the bait-fish and fish, which makes the fly-in fishing exception for both walleye and northern. Even during the “dog days of summer,” the walleye and northern fish on the Cat River System never quit biting. Making Knobby’s an exceptional fly-in fishing experience throughout the entire season. Just ask any of our guests!

A typical trip will start out with the party arriving and having a pre-flight meal at Knobby’s restaurant before departing on your 40 minute float-plane journey to our lodge and or outpost.  Bamaji lake is located 80 miles north of Sioux Lookout, and has over 80 miles of shoreline. The lake is fed by many rivers & streams.
