Camp Description

Our fly in outpost on Jones Lake is on the highly productive Turtle River and is the only cabin located within the Turtle River Provincial Park. This brand new large deluxe outpost cabin is the next generation of outpost adventures. It will make you forget what roughing it is all about and is second to none in size and functionality. Jones Lake is about 3 miles long . This is the only cabin located on these waters providing an almost overwhelming amount of water to explore. This water way offers 6 miles of river to fish with depths up to 50′, with Jones Lake having your typical shield lake structure, and Eltrut being a shallower lake with lots of weed beds and reefs. This is truly a unique system. You can expect catching countless walleyes, monster smallmouth bass, and trophy northern pike in these waters. The walleyes can be found in the moving water, reefs, and many weed lines in large numbers with many in the 18-23″ range. Trophy walleyes are also lurking in these waters with fish over 29″ being reported yearly. The smallmouth bass fishing is fantastic with many fish pushing over 6# in these same areas. Jones offers some of best smallmouth fishing that can be found anywhere. If nonstop smallmouth and walleye is not enough, enjoy chasing the monster pike that cruise these waters. This is a trophy pike hunters paradise with all the water, deep river structure, and weed beds available. Many trophy pike over 40″ are caught every year at this outpost. With all the fresh water feeding the lake and constant flow, these fish have a fast growth rate and and are in excellent numbers. It is common to catch pike in the 4-8# range on average. This unique water way produces both quality and quantity of fish for all species. Jones Lake is a popular location with over 7,500 acres of river and lakes to fish that makes fishermen return year after year.
