The weather in Northwestern Ontario can be highly unpredictable at all times of the year. Most of the time it is not, but one must always be prepared for the elements to ensue a successful and hassle-free fly-in fishing trip. The best time to come on a trip with us is in the months of July and August. Although many of our fishermen prefer May and June for the easier fishing, the weather is simply more predictable later in the season.
Fishing in Northwestern Ontario is many an angler’s dream. The abundant amount of peace, solitude, nature, and fish make it the perfect vacation destination for those truly looking to get away from it all. Anglers fishing in Northwestern Ontario are primarily targeting four primary species. These species are walleye, northern pike, lake trout, and brook trout. Although smallmouth bass and muskies are available in the far southern portions of the province, it is much more likely to tie in to one of these primary species when on a fishing trip in Ontario.
If you haven’t been on an Ontario fishing trip before there is no need to feel intimidated. After all, isn’t trying something new part of the fun? Below are some links that should help all anglers learn more about the primary species of fish that Thunderhook Fly-Ins offers for their anglers.
Ontario Fishing Q & A
Q: What are my options for a quality Canadian fly-in fishing trip?
A: There are two primary options for anglers who do not want to completely “rough it” while fishing in the Ontario Wilderness. The first choice is a fly-in fishing lodge similar to Thunderhook’s Smoothrock Camp. Smoothrock is a housekeeping lodge with all of the amenities and services of an American plan fishing lodge. Anglers looking for a more remote setting can choose one of our remote fly-in outpost camps. The outpost camps are completely secluded and private. Many anglers favorite choice is an outpost camp.
Q: What if I have never been on a fly-in fishing trip to Canada?
A: This is not a problem. Thunderhook can plan your entire fishing vacation for you at no extra charge. After all, you are going on vacation! We provide you with everything from customized trip itineraries to friendly personalized service. We want to make sure that this is your best fishing trip… whether it be you’re first or last!

Q: How many fish can I expect to catch on a fly-in fishing trip?
A: The fishing throughout the area in which we serve in the Wabakimi Provincial Park is absolutely phenomenal. Anglers at times can catch upwards of 100-150 fish per day per person. It is not uncommon for groups of 4 to catch 800-1200 walleyes during a 4-day fishing trip. However, there are times when the fishing is not as productive. If you are a novice on a fishing trip we recommend that you try using our guide service. Also bear in mind that prior to your trip you will receive a map marked with the most productive fishing spots clearly marked. It is also good practice to converse with the group preceding you in regard to where the most productive fishing spots were during their stay.
