Walleye Cove is located 6 miles (10 KLM) east of Nakina on Lower Twin Lake. This is a private camp on a peninsula making it a very safe family destination. Our roomy cottages have awesome views of the lake where guests can watch unbelievable sunrises and sunsets. There is a centrally located firepit with firewood provided, a real favorite with our guests. There is also a BBQ grill for each cottage.
Cottages are fully equipped housekeeping. All have two bedrooms that comfortably sleep four adults with one double and three single beds each. Full bed linens are provided, but you will need to bring your own bath and beach towels. Fully equipped kitchens with propane stoves and electric refrigeration. (Note: please do not bring electric fry pans or hotplates as they overload the generator. Thank you.) Bathrooms have showers and flush toilets. Please be aware that all our water comes directly from the lake, fine for showers, but you will need to bring drinking water.
Boats and motors are on site for rental, ask Brad or Helen when booking your stay. Of course you are always welcome to bring your own boat, no docking fees ever. And there is plenty of room to park your trailer.
A conveniently located chest freezer is available to freeze your fish or game. “The Laundry Shed”, new in 2016, for a small fee per load on the honor system is also available for guest use. As always we welcome your well-behaved four legged family members. Liquor, bank machines, gas, and groceries are available in Nakina and Geraldton.
Lower Twin, Upper Twin, Pete’s Bay, and the Drowning River are all easily accessible from Walleye Cove. Pete’s Bay is protected by an amazing fishery and it improves every year. A diverse lake habitat offers endless fishing opportunities for many styles of angling.
Walleye are of course the stars of the show. Lots of good sized walleyes for the fish fry are sure to put a smile on your face. There are some real trophy sized fish here too, so do not be surprised and keep your camera ready. Jigging is the most popular way to take your walleye. Trolling can also be productive.
Pike are plentiful and especially so in Upper Twin. This system has produced record fish for Ontario. They feed on the whitefish and grow big and fat. Bring the big tackle and your camera. A perfect addition to your evening meal.
From the lodge there are also stocked Brook Trout lakes hidden back in the bush only accessible by logging roads. The Brook Trout are commonly in the 1 to 2-pound range but these lakes do produce 4 and 5-pounders from time to time. We keep their location a secret and only show our guests how to find them when they get here.
Depending on the mayfly hatch (late June), whitefish are a challenge. With their delicate mouth and habit of “rolling” you can have hours of fun. Dry flies that sink just a little are our favorite way to catch these beauties. From our clean waters, these fish are so tasty, especially when grilled.
Perch can be caught in some areas of the system. I would suggest super small jigs or leaf worms on small hooks to bring them in. My favorite way to prepare these are scaled and deep fried, skin on. Yum!
