Camp Description
Populus lake offers outstanding walleye, pike, lake trout and jumbo perch fishing with over twelve miles of water to explore. The tea-colored lake system consists of numerous channels and bays with structure consisting of rock outcrops, points and weed beds (with the deepest part of the lake being over 150 feet). The lake is surrounded by high picturesque terrain that allows anglers to fish even on the windiest days. This fly-in lake is situated in a very remote area set aside from all logging activity. Its a true Canadian Wilderness vacation.

Great fly-in fishing experiences on Populus Lake begin right from the outpost cabin. You can fish the weed beds and points for Walleye and Northern Pike or troll and jig the depths for Lake Trout. The north end of the lake also offers the angler the opportunity to hook onto a Muskie. Walleyes run from two to six pounds with trophies caught every season. Catches of Lake trout in May and June are common with fish averaging five to ten pounds, and trophies as large as twenty-five pounds. Northern pike are eagerly waiting in the weeds or off the rock points for your jigs, spoons or crank baits. Northern pike have been caught as large as twenty five pounds in this water system with the average being five to ten pounds.
