I love to talk fishing and hunting so why not click here to email me.
If you prefer to fish on your own, we have Canadian navigational Rainy Lake maps and are very willing to mark the hotspots. Casting cranks, trolling almost anything and even flyfishing for pike are very effective ways to fish Rainy Lake. If you are looking for an awesome outdoor adventure, Ontario pike fishing on Rainy Lake can't be beat.
Rainy Lake has some of the best northern pike fishing because of it's diverse structure. It has many shallow weedy bays, very deep sections, many islands with shoals and long weed beds. The larger pike like to hang out just inside the weed beds that have deeper water just outside of them. Trolling along the outside of these is very effective. Since the introduction of smelt, we now catch many pike just trolling in open water. Just off the drop offs on any reef or shoal is also another great spot to target. These northerns are often deep bellied fish that weigh heavy on your line. Be prepared for a good fight!
If you are looking for medium or smaller ones just for some non-stop action, the weedy bays are full of them. If you are looking for a few to eat for a shorelunch, these are the places to fish.
We have a slot size on Rainy Lake. You must release any of the northerns between 27.5" - 35.5" . We also prefer that you release all of the trophy size one's 35.5" and above. Replica's now are very reasonably priced and last longer. The slot size, combined with the smelts have turned Rainy Lake into a true trophy lake for Northern Pike.
You can combine your pike fishing with some great smallmouth, walleye, whitefish or crappie fishing. Rainy Lake has it all. Camp Narrows Lodge is the ideal location for your fishing party to stay at. We offer housekeeping or American Plan packages.
You also don't have the long drive north as our lodge is located on Rainy Lake just west of Fort Frances and only a few miles north of the Canadian border. Cross at International Falls, MN and drive west and then north to the boat access ramp on the lake's northwest arm.
