Back LakesOur Remote Back Lakes!!
Fraser Lake is on Highway 65 about 5 kms from the Camp, with a parking & picnic area. It’s stocked annually with Brook Trout through an MNR stocking program. The Trout are plentiful, but tricky to catch. A little know-how, and some patience, will pay off! Good for ice fishing with easy access.
Sisseney (or known as “Ness Lake” by the locals) is a very large lake, located Northwest of our Camp and part of the Montreal River. Access road is rough and a 4X4 is necessary, but it’s well worth the trip. Every structure of fishing imaginable! Deep rock faced cliffs, shallow weedy bays, deep channels, humps and holes litter the lake bottom. Northern Pike, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass are lurking in every corner of the lake, and the scenery is breathtaking.
Sydney Lake is the closest lake to the Main Camp. Since our Outpost Cabin is located there, we keep two boats on the lake at all times. It’s easy to get down the logging road to the boat ramp, with an open area to park your vehicle. It’s a long narrow lake, with Northern Pike, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass. A large feeder creek comes into the lake on the North end, and it flows into Sydney Creek in front of the Camp.
Planty Lake is another long narrow lake which has feeder creeks coming in and out. Accessible by ATV or small truck only, with a rather steep embankment. Northern Pike and Walleye are most abundant fish in this lake.
Hubert Lake is quite a large lake, with islands, rock shoals, shallow weed beds and flats to fish. Easy to get to, with access down a logging road. Northern Pike, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass are plentiful here. Top water action for Smallmouth is always exciting!
Moses Lake is difficult to get to and rarely fished. Accessible by ATV only, it can be an adventure to reach the beautiful shoreline. Northern Pike are plentiful and the peaceful serenity will bring you back again and again.
Indian Chutes Dam
Popular with our guests for shoreline fishing. Easy access by car, with a short walk down a steep embankment. Wade across for some exciting fishing action.
Right off Highway 66, Middleton has an island and a boat ramp. Lots of Smallmouth Bass and Pike make this a popular lake with our regular guests.
A very large long lake, accessible near the gold mine in Matachewan, with a public boat launch that can accommodate larger boats. Mistinikon Lake is 16 miles long, with a waterfall at one end and a Hydro dam at the other. Fish for trophy sized Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Perch and Northern Pike, or enjoy tubing or water skiing.
Beaver Lake is a small lake, hidden from the traveller’s eyes. It’s located very close to the highway and easy to slide a canoe or light boat down it’s banks. This little lake is shallow, 6’ to 12’, and full of Northern Pike. Popular for ice fishing.
In our surrounding area, we have dozens of remote lakes that are exceptionally hard to get to
– but if you are looking for an adventure … we’ll direct you !
