Fly-in fishing enthusiasts are now flocking to Kesagami, not just for the world-class northern pike fishing, but for the incredible walleye angling as well. Long famous for its trophy pike fishery, Kesagami also boasts one of the premier walleye fisheries in Canada.
“Guests sometimes forget that the walleye fishing at Kesagami is truly outstanding,” says previous Kesagami co-owner, Marsha Gibbs. The fact is that many Kesagami anglers fish only for walleyes, and well-documented catches of 100 fish per boat, even occasional 200 fish days, are reported by guests. “Eighty (80) walleyes in less than two hours fishing – while waiting to go on a trophy pike hunt !” reported the staffers of Fly-In Angling Adventures who visited the lodge in mid-July.
As it does at many far-north sites, the early-season provides non-stop action from morning through evening, with catches of 100 to 200 fish per boat per day often reported. After dinner on June 4 / 96, guests caught and released 150 walleyes right off the dock !
