When the traffic your trapped in stretches for miles, do you long for the utter stillness of a cool northern lake, where the loons mysterious call echoes between the canyons of trees. You decide to try an outpost experience at Manitoba Trophy Outposts one of Ontario’s most experienced outfitters.
Your adventure begins with a floatplane ride into a territory as vast and wild as a traveler can reach. This legendary place will be your kingdom for the week. You will be the only explorers to tap the riches of this land. It’s Trophy Pike, It’s prolific Walleye.
It is a privilege to fish here, roaming these cool northern waters, and to do so in complete comfort and safety. Enjoy a day in this wild kingdom then return to the warmth and comfort of your cabin nestled among the pines of a protected island. Truly this is how fishing should be enjoyed by everyone.
Manitoba Trophy Outposts has been a huge success since we began operation. These remote outpost lakes, loaded with fish, have been extremely popular right from the start. Our guests have loved the beautifully designed, large, well outfitted cabins and the relatively small (8-12 miles in length), easy to navigate and simple to fish lakes. We’ve just begun and the number of smiling faces of satisfied guests keeps growing.
There are three lakes to choose from (Warrington, Hornell and Mantricia lakes). You’re on your own but still have the comforting feeling of having connection to the outside world by Satellite telephone.
These outstanding outposts have amenities that will surprise even the veteran outpost fisherman. Large, complete front kitchens fully equipped with all cooking and eating utensils, propane lights, cooking range, barbeques, deep-fryers, fridge and even a freezer. Each cabin has a spacious dining area, living room, two bedrooms with separate beds (bunks), comfortable mattresses and pillows. Hot and cold running water with shower make it seem more like a deluxe main lodge than a remote outpost.
For your peace of mind, all of our Outposts have a 24 hour a day Satellite telephone located at camp. For safety and comfort out on these beautiful lakes, we provide the large 14 foot aluminum boats and dependable motors (also spares at each outpost, just in case) with safety cushions, life jackets, boat seats and landing nets.
Try one of our three outpost camps for a true adventure. Just you, your friends, a beautiful lake and fishing all day long. The fly-in outposts are north of the main lodge on Hornell Lake, Mantricia Lake, and Warrington Lake. All of our outposts offer spectacular fishing for Walleye and Northern Pike and outstanding scenery.
All of our outposts fishing trips include comfortable cabin accommodations, lights, cook stove, Bar-B-Q, fridge and freezer (all propane) , separate beds with pillows (no pillow cases), wood heater, all cooking and eating utensils, one boat and motor for each two (or three) guests, one tank of gas per day per boat, large nets, boat cushions and seats, round trip air fared from Red Lake and check flight during your week, weather permitting.
For your ease of mind, we do have a 24 hour a day Satellite telephone located at each camp.
The Hornell Lake outpost is located 145 miles north of Red Lake, located on a beautiful island in the center of the lake. This 8 mile long lake offers a unique private and incredibly beautiful area to enjoy outstanding fishing, hunting and scenery.
