Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I get there?

    • Once you've arrived in Red Lake (either by road trip or by plane), you call us and we make arrangements to pick you up at our river landing, which is 55km up Nungesser Rd.  The river ride is a beautiful start to your trip, with a chance to see local wildlife like moose, beaver, otters, bears, eagles and more.

  • What do I need to bring?

    • Bring your favourite fishing gear for sure, although basic tackle is available for purchase​ at camp.  This might also include  items like extra fishing line, lures, needle nose pliers, pocket knife, and a basic first aid kit.  

    • Water bottle or thermos and a small cooler

    • Salt & pepper, dish soap, paper towel, paper plates & plastic cutlery for shore lunch

    • Dry bag or container to keep your odds and ends dry when out in the boat

    • The weather can be unpredictable, so make sure you bring something for both extremes, from a warm coat to shorts and a swimsuit. 

    • Rain gear is always a good idea

    •  A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen; visitors often underestimate the Canadian sun, especially when it reflects off the water.  

    • Bug spray.  

    • Basic toiletry items like toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant.  Basic travel sized items will be available for purchase if you forget something.

    • Your groceries if on the Housekeeping Plan.

  • What goods can I bring over the border?  

    • Please check for updated information from the government website

  • Where can I get a fishing licence?

    • For general information and fishing licence options, go to the government website ​

    • You can get your licence online before you leave home or once you get to camp 

  • If I choose to come on the Modified American Plan, what time are meals served?

    • Breakfast is served at 7am and dinner at 6pm.  Make sure to show up with healthy appetites! Although lunch is not included, a pack lunch or shore lunch can be arranged for an extra cost.​

  • What time do we need to have our fish in by to have them cleaned?

    • We start processing fish around 4:30pm so you can have them for dinner if desired.   If you bring in fish after hours we ask that you ice them down in the fish house and we will clean them first thing in the morning. Your eating fish will be delivered to your cabin while
      any fish you want frozen to take home will be cleaned and stored in our freezers. If at any time you want to know what you have in the freezer the tally boards in the fish house have your totals on them or ask any staff and they will get the information for you.​

  • How many fish can I bring in/take home?

    • At any one time, each person with a standard fishing licence can have in their possession 4 Walleye (only 1 over 18") and 4 Northern Pike (none between 27.5" - 35.5" and only 1 over 35.5")​.  This includes fish in your cooler, fridge, freezer, on your stringer or your lunch plate.

  • Do we have to buy prop insurance?

    • ​We do offer Prop Insurance to all guests as an option.  This covers all props, on the group's boats, for the duration of their stay, but does not cover any other damages ie: lower unit or boat damage.  To save on the costs of a few props at bill time, we would suggest it is a worthwhile extra to purchase.  ($100/boat)
