My father and I have been talking about doing a fly-in Canadian fishing trip for some time. The funds are a little tighter than I had hoped, and now we are revising it to a drive up/bring our own boat and camp to save money. I know their a 1000 outfits that can do just that.....we went to the sports show last year and all the info we got was geared more toward the fly-in trips. With time running short and needing to get a reservation in (going late june/early july) I need to figure this out soon. I know a few of you have a favorite spot up thier and hoped you would share it with me. Needs: 1.Drive to (12/15 hours) 2.Tent camping 3.Of course...Good walleye fishing
I booked a trip from these guys last year at the sports show. My son and 4 others had the trip of a lifetime! It is about 3 hours northeast of fort frances. A very easy drive for some excellent fishing! Let me know if you want any further info. Shannon@bucketrack.com
I have asked a couple people I work with and have heard that the provinchal parks are cheap, and very decent to camp at. May go that route. Try and narrow down a couple of good lakes and then find a "state" park to camp at...heard it was like $10 a night for the camp site.
I think I have found the lake....Reed Lake in Manitoba. Anyone ever fish it before? Going to stay at Grass river Provinchal park...Its like $10 a night. Other then gas getting their, cheap trip. The lake is known for monster Northers, Walleye, and lakers. Just woundering if any of you have been or heard of it.
I have little expierence with the lakes up there other than the trip I took last year with my son. I do however would like to know what time we are leaving and the dates so I can tell my wife when I will be gone!
Late June/early July (middle of bug season).....Speaking of wives, Mines not real happy about this either. I really don't think 2 bwca trips and 1 little 900 mile jont into northern Manitoba is such a big deal? That only gets me through end of july.....I think thier is plenty of time to plan 1 more outting in early sept. Talked with a resort up thier (on the lake) last year they had the big walleye go out at 33 inches and 100's in the 27-31 inch. Looked on the web site and lost count of how many Northerns went 40 or bigger....Much bigger. Now, If I can just add my name to the list of big fish ....Suppose I would have to pay the going rate at the resort to get on the wall of fame...yep, I'm just to cheap.

Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
