Wapesi, a favorite lake for many people for many years, continues to boast some of the best walleye and northern pike fishing in Canada. Wapesi Lake, a 30 minute flight from Sioux Lookout, is 12 miles long and ideal for larger fishing parties.
Trophy northern pike and walleye are commonly caught in these very dark waters but the lake is known mainly for the abundance of fish. The area is home to many moose, eagles, beaver, otter and mink that guests frequently “shoot” to accompany the fishing highlights, northern lights, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets in a prize photo collection.
This camp, at the south end of Wapesi Lake, has propane fridge, stove, lights, hot water tank, barbeque, fish fryer, and indoor washroom with shower. Boats with new swivel seats, motors and gas are waiting for long restful fishing days. This cabin is located on a narrow strip of land at the south end of the lake. It is a favorite for many because, if it is windy, you can always sneak around to the back and fish the river and bays in shelter.
