Fly-in Walleye Fishing North of Nakina:

Below are Walleye fishing descriptions for Beteau Lake, Windsor Lake, Richter Lake and Black Birch Lake.

Beteau Lake Walleye Fishing

Beteau Lake is a widening of the famous Attawapiskat River and down stream around 35 miles from Attawapiskat Lake.

The Walleye fishing in the Attawapiskat water system is outstanding and considered one of the top Walleye destinations in Ontario due to its remote location and the low fishing pressure. You have to travel 60 miles south to reach the most northern camps that other outfitters in Nakina offer. Ontario's Walleye fishing regulations combined with our catch-&-release policy ensures ever increasing opportunities for big trophy Walleyes.

Weather can greatly affect the way the Walleyes are feeding but generally on an average day of relaxing fishing you should catch between 20 and 50 Walleyes in a day. On overcast days with a little rain and wind the Walleyes generally feed better and you can catch 50 to 75 Walleyes in a day. Guests who are experienced on the river and fish intensely have been known to catch much more and some guests achieve that magic 100 Walleyes in a day. We do not want you to expect that kind of number but it has happened. If you are new to Walleye fishing we will set you up with some techniques that are red hot as well as give you a map of the hotspots. We also have guides available who will show you the best Walleye fishing imaginable and cook you up a shore lunch of fresh Walleye that you will never forget.

Some guests want numbers and others are searching for trophy caliber Walleyes. The average size Walleye in the lake is around 2 pounds. Guests catch Walleyes up to 5 pounds almost daily. During a week of fishing a few lucky guests will catch Walleyes up in the 10 pound range. Since we bought the camp in 2009 the largest Walleye caught has been a fat 32.5-incher that weighed in at 14 pounds. Because of our catch-&-release policy all those trophy Walleyes are still there and waiting for you.

In the spring all the Walleyes are shallow and right up against shore and in 2 or 3 feet of water. As the spring fades into summer the smaller Walleyes in the 2 to 3 pound range will be found 3 to 5 feet of water. The big trophy Walleyes, which are almost always female, will stay down 8 to 12 feet during the day and then late evening will come up into the shallows. The Walleyes are also constantly moving. The majority are found in the bottlenecks of the river where there is some current. You will also catch them off rocky points leading into bays and off the weeds but in deeper water to avoid the pike. The Walleye go back and forth between areas of current and make stops at the structure discussed above.

Windsor Lake Walleye Fishing

Windsor Lake not only produces gigantic Walleyes, it produces vast numbers. The main water system consists of three main bodies of water that are just stuffed with Walleyes and gives you 20 miles to fish. For guests who have a more adventurous spirit; they can drive the boat through some narrow spots with current and have access to even more lakes.

How many Walleyes you catch in a day depends on factors such as weather, fishing skills and how hard you work. You should be able to catch 50 to 75 Walleyes in a day and on really good days catch between 75 and 100. You will catch lots of 2 and 3-pounders and during a week catch a couple in the 5 pound range. Even though the average size Walleye is a little smaller than Beteau Lake, there are still big Walleyes in this lake. Walleyes over 27 inches have been caught-&-released by our guests. This lake is not very deep and very easy to fish. You will basically catch Walleyes everywhere where there are rocks, weeds or current during the summer. In early spring, the Walleyes are either in the current or they are right up against shore on sandy beaches and sand bars.

We recently acquired this outpost cabin and it has hardly been fished in since 2009. Windsor Lake is known for containing extremely large amounts of Walleye. Back in 2006, it was reported that hundreds of Walleye were caught each day ranging from 20 to 25 inches with the biggest fish caught for the week being 27.5 inches. It was also reported that many Northern Pike were caught ranging from 30 to 37 inches. One can only imagine how many more Walleye and Northern are there now and how much bigger they have become.

Richter Lake Walleye Fishing

For guests who want to catch Walleyes until their arms fall off we send them to Richter Lake. This lake is so easy to fish because it's basically 10 feet deep right across with a couple of holes that go down to 20 feet. It's has a rocky Canadian Shield shoreline but the bottom is usually sandy with large beds of Musky Cabbage and Pickerel Grass. The Walleyes are everywhere. This could be the best Walleye lakes in Ontario as far as numbers.

On an average day you should be able to catch 100 walleyes and on a really good day that number can reach 150. Guests have found spots where it seems like Walleye are caught almost every cast. The Walleyes are a little smaller and are common in the 1.5 to 3 pound range but a fair number of Walleyes in the 5 pound range do get caught. There are bigger Walleyes in the lake and guest do catch Walleyes over 25 inches but generally we send people to this camp that just want to have loads of fun. It's also a great place to bring the kids or people new to fishing because it's so easy to catch fish. It is not unheard of for a group of 6 people to catch over 2,000 walleye per week with an average size of 18 to 22 inches.

Black Birch Lake Camp

Black Birch Lake Camp will be open in the near future for World Class Trophy Northern Pike and World Class Trophy Walleye fishing adventures. And I mean BIG fish! This camp is 50 miles father north than our main camp on Beteau Lake and is one of the most remote northern outpost camps in Ontario.
