Nakina Walleye Fishing
Fly-in Walleye Fishing: Thanks to the conservation attitude of fisherpersons and better overall fisheries management in Ontario, ever year the Walleye fishing keeps getting better and better. Our top Walleye lakes for numbers are our fly-in lakes. Ara Lake, Marshall Lake and Dusey Lake, which is a widening of the Dusey River and Teabeau Lake, which is a widening of the Albany River, all produce incredible numbers as well as trophies. From ice-out in May to mid-July you can experience non-stop action. Many guests report back to us saying they found multiple places on the lakes where the Walleyes were schooling and they were catching one Walleye after another until their arms became sore. If you really wanted to you could catch 100 walleyes in a day.
Ontario is the top destination in North America for Walleye fishing and the lakes north of Nakina are the very best hotspots for Walleyes in the province. There are no other lakes that produce such extremely high numbers of Walleyes while still giving you the opportunity to catch Trophy Walleyes as well as good numbers of trout and pike.
Walleyes in our fly-in lakes are very common in the 1 to 3-pound range. You should catch a few in the 4 to 5-pound range during the day. Mid-spring before the big females go deep, you should catch a few in the 25 to 28-inch range and you can sacrifice numbers and try to fish deeper for 28 to 30-inch Walleyes. In the heat of summer, the 1 to 3-pound Walleyes are still the most common. Trolling close to shore at dusk and at night should produce a few Walleyes over 30 inches. On occasion, Walleyes in the 10 to 18-pound range get caught and released on our fly-in lakes.
Drive-to Base Camp on Lower Twin Lake: The Walleye fishing at our drive-to base camp is great. You will not see the numbers that you will see on a fly-in but you will see the same sizes and most certainly catch enough Walleyes to be happy. Pete's Bay is the major Walleye Spawning area for Upper & Lower Twin Lakes and a Provincial Fish Sanctuary, which translates into Walleye Producing Machine. In early spring and late fall some of the biggest Walleyes in the Nakina area are found in the Drowning River, which in part flows from Upper Twin Lake and Lower Twin. Walleyes in the Twin Lakes are generally caught a couple of feet deeper because the water is clearer than the fly-in lake. Be equipped to fish in the 8 to 12-foot range and don't forget the Tartar Sauce.
