Find Yourself At A Northern Ontario Fishing Lodge

Northern Ontario’s vast landscape is seemingly endless. It’s dotted with pristine lakes, only accessible by bush or float plane, making it a spectacular area for fishing, hiking and paddling.

The fly-in fishing trip is one of the most iconic Canadian experiences, but for the novice fisherfolk, it can seem daunting. That’s where Northern Ontario’s fly-in fishing lodges come in. They put the Northern Ontario wilderness  at your finger tips.

What is “fly-in fishing”?

Fly-in fishing trips begin on the dock with you and your gear loaded into the plane. You’re flown to a remote location, accessible only by plane. Walleye, northern pike, large mouth bass and trout are just some of the species that can be caught in these remote locations.

This remote, wild getaway is more accessible than you might think! You just need to do your research. You can go about this two ways.

The first is to book through flight services directly and have them plan your adventure. The second is to book a stay at a wilderness lodge and have them plan your trip for you. It just depends on how much of the leg work you want to do!


Lauzon Aviation gives you two points of entry into the wilderness for your fly-in adventure. Take a floatplane from Marquette Lake, just 1.5 hours north of Sudbury or from Lauzon Lake (halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie) to a simple rustic outpost cabin on a peaceful Northeastern Ontario lake.

Just outside North Bay, Lakeland Airways in Temagami offers remote fly-in fishing, canoeing, hiking, and sightseeing trips. Their fly-in fishing packages are one cottage per lake!

Sudbury Aviation operates 14 modern fly-in outpost camps that are located in some of the finest fishing and hunting areas in Northern Ontario, just 30-40 minutes by float plane north of Sudbury!

How’s this for a view? It could be yours with a fly-in fishing experience!

Not much into fishing? Whether you catch the fish yourself or not, you can also host a traditional shore lunch! It’s a delicious, time-honoured tradition; and a great way to take in our infamous lakeside scenery.


Regardless of where you choose to book, Northern Ontario offers pristine lakes, great fishing, wildlife viewing, and true wilderness experiences.
