We recently acquired this outpost camp. It has not been consistently fished since 1992 so you can expect exceptional fishing. There is a brand new 24×16 foot cabin that sleeps 8 people comfortably with plenty of room for gear.
Amenities include: refrigerator, wood stove, propane stove and propane lighting. The cabin is wired for electricity. Therefore, if you supply a small generator, electricity is available. Please Note: Gas for your generator would be available to you at no additional charge.
Richter Lake could be the top Walleye lake in Ontario as far as numbers. Reaching that 100 Walleyes per day mark is easy. There are plenty of Northern Pike up to the 40-inch mark with a few 40+ Northerns being reported buy guests. We also have Moose hunting out of this outpost camp in the fall. Please select a link below to read more details about the fishing and hunting.
Richter Lake Walleye Fishing
For guests who want to catch Walleyes until their arms fall off we send them to Richter Lake. This lake is so easy to fish because it’s basically 10 feet deep right across with a couple of holes that go down to 20 feet. It’s has a rocky Canadian Shield shoreline but the bottom is usually sandy with large beds of Musky Cabbage and Pickerel Grass. The Walleyes are everywhere. This could be the best Walleye lakes in Ontario as far as numbers.
On an average day you should be able to catch 100 walleyes and on a really good day that number can reach 150. Guests have found spots where it seems like Walleye are caught almost every cast. The Walleyes are a little smaller and are common in the 1.5 to 3 pound range but a fair number of Walleyes in the 5 pound range do get caught. There are bigger Walleyes in the lake and guest do catch Walleyes over 25 inches but generally we send people to this camp that just want to have loads of fun. It’s also a great place to bring the kids or people new to fishing because it’s so easy to catch fish. It is not unheard of for a group of 6 people to catch over 2,000 walleye per week with an average size of 18 to 22 inches.
Richter Lake Northern Pike Fishing
Beteau Lake is a widening of the famous Attawapiskat River and produces the biggest Northern Pike in Ontario without question. There are a number of reasons why:
Richter Lake is not known as a Northern Pike lake. It’s where we send guests who want to catch 100 Walleyes in a day. Truthfully we do not really know the Pike potential in Richter Lake because everyone that fishes the lake specifically targets Walleye. Guests do catch Northern Pike while Walleye fishing and you can expect to catch 15 to 20 of them in a day. There have been really big Pike caught there but since most Walleye guests don’t use leaders they often lose anything big. There is no reason why Richter Lake could not produce a 20-pounder. They have millions of Walleyes to feed on.
There are three unnamed lakes that are expansions of the Attawapiskat River.
