The Albany River also produces Monster Northern Pike. The Pike have Walleye, Chub, Suckers and Brook Trout to feast on. The population of Pike is not like our other lakes. You are not going to catch lots of smaller Pike but the Pike you do catch are big. Our guests have caught many 20+-pound Pike. With the exception of that one Monster Pike that was caught at Base Camp, all the biggest Pike come from the Albany River. There are 25 to 30-pound Northern Pike is this river and many say the next World Record Pike may come from the Albany.
The biggest attraction to the Albany River is the Brook Trout Fishing. The Albany River is the top Brook Trout river in Ontario and many say the Albany is just as good as the top Brook Trout rivers in Northern Quebec and Newfoundland. It's a matter of opinion but many feel the Albany River has the best Brook Trout fishing in the world. Brook Trout are common in the 1 to 4-pound range. Guest on occasion catch 5 and even 6-pounders. Occasionally, 7 and even 8-pound Brook Trout get caught but a trout this big is rare and we do not want you to expect to catch a trout that big. The possibility is there.
Our cabin is located on the very best spot in the whole river. Down river is Kagiami Falls. At the falls you can fish from shore and catch tons of Brook Trout. There are literally hundreds of them right in front of you. In the summer when the water is lower you can actually see them in the water. Up river from the cabin are a series of rapids as well as deep swirling pools. There are fish everywhere. This up-river adventure is not for the faint of heart. The water is white and fast. There are lots of rocks and current that will make your heart quicken. Of course you don't need to do the rapids but that is passing on a great experience that you will remember forever. You just need to be ready for more than just a quiet spot of fishing. Driving the boat up the rapids opens up 5 more miles of river to explore.
The cabin we presently have on Teabeau Lake is rustic. It does the job. It's solid and keeps the weather out. There is a wood burning stove that heats the cabin up quickly, which is a welcoming feeling when the weather turns bad. The cabin sleeps 6 people in bunk beds. The cabin is fully equipped with propane lights, propane stove and refrigerator. There are pots, pans, dishes, coffee pots & cups, strainers, stovetop toasters, cutlery, can openers and everything else you need. The beds are bunk beds with mattresses. You need to bring your own pillow, sleeping bag and bedroll cover. There is also a table with benches and chairs.
