Northwinds Outpost is a drive-in/boat-in/boat-in cabin located in a very remote part of picturesque Northern Ontario. Located on the Great Lakes side (Atlantic Watershed) of the Canadian Shield, you will enjoy fishing for abundant Walleye, large Northern Pike as well as native Whitefish and beautiful Lake Trout.
Access to this Outpost is done through a boat-in at Vezina Lake which has deep drops in depth some nearing 100 ft, and an abundance of rivers and creeks feeding into it.
Guests have the use of 3 boats on Vezina Lake as well as 4 fully-equipped boats on Northwinds Lake. This arrangement provides for an expanded Fishing Adventure and increases your chances in catching fish.
Meeting point and time will be established prior to your arrival. From the meeting point you follow us in your vehicle to the parking location, your gear is then loaded into a boat. We go by boat to the end of Vezina Lake where we land and unload all of your gear and portage it about 1000 feet over a small hill to 4 awaiting boats using our ATV to do the bull work. All of your gear is reloaded into these boats and we then proceed to the Northwinds Lake Outpost Camp. Once arrived we unload all of your gear and ensure everything is in order at the cabin.
The cabin is nice clean and comfortable that sleeps up to 8 people. You can enjoy fishing these waters as if it were a fly-in lake. No other cabins are located on any of the waters you can fish from Northwinds Lake. Feel free to bring a small boat or canoe and explore the many other lakes that can be reached via the logging roads in the area. For complete details on this or any of our other lakes please feel free to contact us.
