Camp Description

About Dusey Lake

Dusey Lake is the lake that everybody talks about on fishing message boards but few have been lucky enough to actually fish it. In all fishing groups, there is a difference of interest. Some guys want Walleye, some guys want Pike and others Want Brook Trout. Dusey Lake is the perfect fly-in lake and offers everybody in your group what they are looking for.

The Walleye fishing is non-stop. The most common size Walleye is in the 16 to 20-inch range but there are some big trophy females in the lake and guests do catch walleyes in the 25 to 32-inch range. Walleyes and Brook Trout are constantly migrating up and down the river. Right out in front of our cabin and stretching across the lake is the Gene Smith Ridge. This is a ridge where the water drops from 6-foot to 15 feet deep and Monster Northern Pike just hang off this ridge ambushing everything that moves. There have been guests who have pulled five 20+ pound Northerns off this ridge in an afternoon. We don’t want you to expect that but when you are in the right place at the right time anything can happen. In the spring there is awesome Brook Trout fishing up stream at Loten Falls.

The Fishing

Each year for the last few years guests to our fly in lodges have caught-&-released multiple Northern Pike over 50″. Guests have also been catching Silver Pike, which is a sub-species of the Northern Pike, and have also been catching more and more Blue Walleye each year.

Over the last couple of seasons we have been doing a lot of fishing for Brook Trout throughout the summer. We have been fishing up stream and downstream looking for where the trout are holding up. We have had surprising success farther upstream above the falls and down stream below the main outflow rapid. We have made a couple of new portages around the various rapids to make it easy for guests to find the best fishing. Our reward was catching many nice Brookies. Take a look at some of the photos in our trout photo gallery and you will see our success. There are Walleyes and Northern Pike up and down the river and potential you can find a spot that nobody has ever fished before. Dusey Lake also has outstanding Perch fishing and there are some Whitefish. Dusey Lake has Sturgeon but you cannot fish for them because they are now protected under the Endangered Species Act. If you mistakenly catch a Sturgeon you must let it go right away. If you try to bring it back to camp to show your buddies you could get into some serious trouble. It’s OK to take a quick picture

The Cabin

Dusey Lake has a new two-bedroom cabin that will accommodate up to 10 persons.

The cabin is fully equipped with propane lights, propane stove and refrigerator. There are pots, pans, dishes, coffee pots & cups, strainers, stove-top toasters, cutlery, can openers and everything else you need. The beds are bunk beds with mattresses. You need to bring your own pillow, sleeping bag and bedroll cover. There is also a large kitchen table with benches and chairs. In the center of the cabin is a wood-burning stove for heat.

Indoor electric lights are powered by a small generator that also charges the battery system. The battery system is used to power an electric water pump used by both the kitchen sink and shower. As propane costs a fortune to fly in, the water is heated with an “on demand system” which is much more energy efficient. By mid-June most guests go swimming to get clean.

Portage Lakes

In the summer you can take the canoe and go past the Loten Falls or down river to find some great Brookies, which are common in the 1 to 3-pound range but have been caught in the 4 to 7-pound range.
