Good fishing spots keep changing with the seasons and the years, We’ve been flying throughout Northwestern Ontario since the early 60’s and have learned to watch for these changes and hunt out new spots. This year we’re inviting you to add a new thrill to your vacation experience by flying -away back in- where the lakes know only the occasional fisherman to their waters.
Northwest Flying has been servicing Nestor Falls and surrounding lakes for over 60 years. We are located on Hwy 71 only a short 1hr drive from the Minnesota border. We offer charter flights to many excellent commercial camps as well as private cabins only accesible by floatplane. If your on a budget we have many remote lakes set up with boats & motors for day trips or camping trips. We also own and operate several 1st class outpost cabins that are all within a short 20 min flight on some excellent fishing lakes. So give us a call to discuss your next Canadian fishing adventure.
Air transportation in Nestor Falls was started back in the late forties by Red Swanton. He transported fishermen to Kay Lake and Kishkutena Lake with a Waco and a Fox Moth from the old base on Lake of the Woods known as Clearwater Air Service. In the early sixties Red sold his charter to Ralph Showalter when it then became Northwestern Flying Services.
The company changed hands a few more times up until 1987 when Jack and Mary Pope acquired the property changing the name to Northwest Flying Inc.
Now some 30 years later the Pope family still operates the business under the ownership of Shane and Gina.
For those anglers looking for a truly remote fishing experience a fly-in outpost is definitely the answer. We currently operate five outposts cabins all on different lakes. You’ll never have to worry about crowds and you can fish in complete seclusion for walleye, northern, muskie, bass or lake trout. All of our lakes are within a short 20 minute flight so you will be fishing in no time.
Our cabins are fully stocked and include hot and cold running water, indoor showers, solar powered lights, barbeques, fish cookers, fridges, and stoves. We run new Yamaha motors with swivel boat seats and plenty of gas on site.
Drinking water now avaialble at all outpost cabins !
If you prefer the remoteness fishing trip without the work of portaging and costs of an Outpost then a fly in camping trip is for you. We have several lakes already set up with boats and motors, no over crowded campsites here. You will be the only ones occupying your very own private lake. Choose from walleye, northern, muskie, bass or lake trout and depending on if you want quantity or perhaps a trophy for the wall we can recommend a fly in camping lake for you. Trips can be arranged from 3 to 7 days. Try roughing it out in the woods with just the bare necessities – but good and comfortable just the same. Not sure about staying overnight ? We also offer day trips to the same lakes. Trips depart our base at 7am and return at 4pm.
