Lake Trout in Red Lake

Small lake trout caught again in Red Lake

Seventeen-inch laker caught and released by Jerime Williams
Anglers are catching little lake trout in Red Lake and that is spectacular news!
That statement might seem confusing to people who are not familiar with the lake trout situation in Red Lake. After all, don't you want to always catch big lake trout?
No. No you don't. During the 1980s and '90s Red Lake gained the reputation of having some of the largest lake trout anywhere. They were plentiful and easy to catch and as a result there was a colossal over-harvest. The curious thing was no one caught little lakers. Around the year 2000 studies showed there just weren't any. It was also found that the few remaining mature trout, almost all located in Pipestone Bay, were not successfully reproducing although they were found to be perfectly healthy.
This began a 17-year long program by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry to renew the trout population and bring back the fishery. Hundreds of volunteers as well as camps and businesses have joined in. About a million fingerlings reared from Red Lake's own wild trout have been released in the lake. The planted fish can be identified by a missing fin. The MNRF clips a different fin each year.
Meanwhile naturally-spawned fish are showing up in anglers' catches as well. Bow Narrows angler Jerime Williams holds one in the photo up top. It has all its fins.
All lake trout must be released on Red Lake while this species rebuilds. Regulations also require anglers to only use lures with single barbless hooks and not to use any bait, alive or dead.

Looking for worms or leeches. Here are your options

We carry minnows , but we recommend you bring up some gulp for the crazy feeding days.

Here's a list of some of the live bait dealers that sell worms or nightcrawlers by the flat (500 worms) and leeches by the pound.
Many of these dealers also carry frozen ciscoes and sucker minnows used for early spring and fall northern pike fishing.
Of course all of them carry minnows as do many other stores in the Northwest.
You can place bait orders in advance and have the bait waiting for you when you either arrive in Red Lake or pass through the towns where the bait dealers are located. All it takes to keep the bait alive are some frozen water bottles or freezer packs to keep them cool.

Bear Hunting at Pakwash Lake Camp, Ear Falls, Ontario





Pakwash Lake Camp Offers Fall Archery and 
Muzzle Loader pre-baited Hunts.

  • We offer individual, or group packages.  Non hunters pay regular fishing rates.
  • Please be sure to bring an expired hunting licence with you, one that is valid for the State that you reside in,  and that I can keep.  I need to staple it to the licence I issue you as proof of previous hunting experience.  or  please bring along an existing one.  It involves more paperwork, but I can make it work with an affidavit.
  • Hunter orange (at the very least a vest and hat) must be worn to and from the hunting stands.  Once there, it can be removed if you wish.
  • It is no longer necessary to pre-approve your entry and your weapon when crossing the border. Confirmed with Customs Official at Fort Frances told us that they no longer did pre-approvals as they have done in the past.  She said that their computers are updated now and much faster and they can do it as you speak.
  • the new procedure is to drive up with your weapon cased, etc and when they ask about firearms, say “yes, you do have with” and they will want to look at the weapon, and view serial numbers, etc.  If you have any information about registration, etc you might bring it along.
  • at this time they will also ask for identification and when you produce it, they will run it, and they will be looking for information such as, have you ever had any DUI’s, and if so when and how many?  Do you have a felony record of violence, etc?
  • depending on your answers, you could be denied entry. There are steps you can take, if you need to get special paperwork to gain access if one of your parties has had a DUI in the past.

1920's Map if the area, cool to see the changes.

Lets Go Fishing, What should you bring?

What to Bring Fishing, a Fishing Checklist

Pakwash Lake Camp Checklist
What should one bring to Camp for fishing!

Essential Clothing
• Good rain gear - more important than new tackle.
• Water proof footwear - rubber boots, over shoes, gortex hikers. Wet feet will shorten any day on the water. Winter boots for spring and fall fishing is a must.
• Comfortable shoes - these are for everyday and to wear in the cabin as well.
• Warm socks - I always carry a spare pair of warm wool socks in my gear bag.
• Long underwear - a must in spring and fall but I would pack a pair for every trip.
• Turtle neck shirt - nice to keep the drafts out
• Wool hat and peak hat - keep the sun off your head and keep it warm
• Personal clothing - pants, shirts, underwear etc
• Gloves or mittens - mittens are always warmer but tough to reel in with
• Warm coat - that will fit under your rain coat
• Shorts or zip away paints - for those gorgeous summer days
• We recommend you always bring warm clothes anytime of the year.

Miscellaneous Camp Gear
• Ziploc bags - use to store socks, camera etc in in your dry bag
• Mosquito coils - for in the cabin if you are one to leave the door open a lot
• Good Book - for when your buddy is snoring just a little too loud
• Extra Batteries for all your electronic devices
• Flash Light - we may have flush toilets but the outhouses still work in a pinch
• Paper plates & paper cups - great if nobody in your crew likes to do dishes
• Gallon or two of cooking oil
• Fish Batter
• Paper towels - for drying off your cooked fish
• Charcoal - we do have grills available at the cabins.

Boat Gear
• Life Jacket (Canadian or U.S. Coast Guard approved.)

• Large Rubbermaid container - used for shore lunch fixings and/or dry box in boat
• Small first aid kit - just incase
• Sun Block - use it...a lot
• Insect repellant - wet seasons bring bugs
• Matches / lighter – shore lunch becomes sushi
• Hand warmers - a pleasant bonus
• Medication
• Safety string for glasses - imagine springtime, 50 degree crystal clear water, 12 ft down, oops...you decide
• Water bottle - hydration keeps you on the water
• Flashlight - just because
• Multi-tool - you never know when
• Small tackle box or tray to pack in back pack for portage lakes
• Long needle nose pliers or hookouts
• Small bolt cutters - sometimes cutting the hook is best
• Jaw spreaders - they help
• Line clippers – Fireline = chipped teeth
• Fishing rags for the boat
• Fishing knives
• Jig eye buster
• Portable rod holder - for landing your buddies fish
• Fish locator - handy
• 2 rods & reels - is two enough
• Stringer - I prefer a rope stringer just don't put it through the mouth and gills
• Extra line
• No-scent soap - use after sun block or insect repellant to remove odours)
• Polarized Sunglasses - must have
• Lindy Catch and Release glove - kevlar is tooth proof
• Camera - in a ziploc bag -document your big fish
• Spare batteries (try to bring gear that uses the same battery size)
• Wide brim hat to cover neck and ears - don't be the redneck
• GPS - take me home
