Lake Name: Kamungishkamo

This group consisted of a father, son and 2 teenage grandkids. It was Canadian fishing trip number 81 for the Father and he said it was great!! They caught all the Walleyes they wanted, but mostly smaller ones. They had two 24-inchers, which were the biggest. They had great weather all week once the Monday storm passed through. They noted the upgrades at the cabin and said “Clark’s have some of the best outpost camps in Ontario. They include an upgraded cabin, good appliances, new fish cleaning/storage shed, sauna and large outhouse.” They said they had great fishing off the dock, near the reef to the south, and the falls at the inlet on the far north end. In closing they said, “Camp checks were on time and frequent and the minnows were always available!  Thanks to Wayne, Karla and Meagan for the great trip.”

Date: July 31, 2019 – August 7, 2019

This couple was blown away at how hot the weather was during their stay on the island. Not a lot of wind and about 90-95 Fahrenheit throughout the week. This slowed the fishing down a bit but they still caught a couple hundred walleyes on the portage lakes the biggest was 24 inches. The best fishing was on rocky points, shorelines and any rocky structure in about 12-20 feet. Fishing stayed consistent all day. As for northern fishing they caught 75 and the biggest was 34 inches. Northerns were hanging out along the weeds and shorelines. They didn’t try for Lake Trout.

These two couples had a great week at Snelgrove. They caught over 500 walleyes and around 33 northerns. Both were being caught somewhat shallow in about 6-15 feet. The best lure was a jig and they found worms and minnows worked well. The best time for fishing was in the morning and evening. The fishing location was dictated by the wind direction as there were many windy days. 

Lake Name: Dobie 

Date: August 3, 2019 – August 7, 2019

Despite the weather challenges, this group of 4 caught a few hundred Walleye including a 26-incher. They had lots of fun and laughs and said the cabin was great. They caught over 100 Northern with the biggest being just shy of 40 inches. The best bait for Walleyes was gold/white jigs with minnows and the best spots were shorelines and weedbeds.

Date: August 3, 2019 – August 10, 2019

This week at Kam the guys caught approximately 1500 walleyes with a 24 incher being the biggest. Any colour jig worked as long as there was a minnow on it! The guests fished mainly the spots marked on the map and the fishing for walleye was consistent throughout the day. While jigging for walleye they caught 12 northerns.

They did not target northerns however they caught 28 while jigging for walleyes. The largest was 33 inches. The group found the best bait were minnows/leeches on a jig.

They were biting in 6-12 feet in between 10AM-2PM. They also tried for some northern and caught 40 using mainly dark chartreuse deep diver lure along rocky shorelines in about 12 feet. The group also took a shot at Trout fishing on Isabelle Lake.

Lake Name: Wright

Date: August 5, 2019 – August 9, 2019 

Unfortunately, Wright Lake can get rolling in high winds and this happened to be the windiest week of the summer! Along with some really hot weather, this group had some tough fishing conditions. They still caught over 100 Walleye and 40 Northerns. The biggest walleye was 22 inches and the largest northern measured at 38 inches.
