What to Bring on your Ontario Fly In Fishing Trip

Turbine Otter Departure


Clothes will depend on the time of the year you scheduled your trip, how long you will be gone, also plan on dressing in layers and try not to bring big bulk coats and clothes you really don't need. Bring clothes like zipper pants that can be worn as shorts, clothes that can be easily hand washed and worn again and leave your traveling clothes back at the base.

Turbine Otter Departure


Safety/required equipment should include a life-jacket, rain-gear, bug dope, two way radio, water filters or pump, and a first aid kit.

Food, Beverages, and How to Pack

  • Take only what you need for your party — Try to avoid glass containers and cans, transfer to plastic when possible
  • Eliminate oversized bags and boxes
  • Avoid heavy beverages like cases of pop, bring mix drinks, coffee, tea, etc.
  • Have frozen meats individually packaged in freezer paper and packed in a small cooler
  • Eggs should be put in protected containers
  • Loaves of bread should be put in a hard container or cooler
  • Vegetables and potatoes should be either frozen or freeze dried
  • You will probably eat some meals or fish, but bring some emergency freeze dried or boxed meals just in case.
  • Foods like pasta or wild rice take much less room and weigh much less than potatoes
  • Dish towels, dish soap, wash cloths, bath towel, pillow case, soap, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, and lighters or matches

Note: You may be drinking and using lake water for cooking, so make sure you either boil it first, or use a filter or filter pump and bring a collapsilble water bag if you are at an outpost cabin.

Live Bait?

We recommend that all of our visitors use live bait during their fishing trip. Studies have been done that show live bait outperforms other forms of bait on a consistent basis. Live bait will cost just a little more, but it will mostly likely enhance your fishing experience.

Thunderhook Outposts

Fishing is only half of the deal, our clients want a warm, well-equipped, and clean lodge to spend most of their days. We believe we offer some of the highest quality fishing lodges in all of Canada. Though access to our cabins is fly in only, we still keep these outpost cabins in great shape. Choose one of our smaller outposts for a small fishing getaway, or a large one for a family-styled bunking outfit. Either way, our top-tier outpost cabins let you get the most out of your trip.

We're proud to offer eight unique fly-in fishing outposts to fit small or large groups. All of our outpost cabins are set up for the Ultimate Canadian Fishing Experience. Click on each individual outpost details.
