About Gateway North Outfitters

Gateway North Outfitters is owned and operated by Lucas & Nicole Adams. I (Lucas) have been working in the hunting and fishing business for the last 20+ years. It all started when my parents left Iowa and purchased an American plan fishing lodge located on Yoke Lake. I spent 6 years guiding and helping with the daily operations there. Then I followed them into the fly in outpost business (L&M Fly In) and worked with them for the next 15 years running the office and airbase, as well as doing lots of the maintenance and cabin remodeling. My wife Nikki (also from Iowa) joined us in the business in the spring of 1996 and has been working the business ever since. We purchased a small camp located on Off Lake in the spring of 2001 and started running our bear hunts and some deer hunts out of the cabins at this time, as well as overnight lodging for L&M Fly In guests. In the spring of 2004 we purchased our first outpost cabin, a boat in outpost located on Pipestone Lake. In the spring of 2006 we purchased two fly in outpost cabins located on Grant Lake and Dogfly Lake and continued working for L&M Fly In, as well as running our own operation. In January of 2007 we purchased another fly in outpost cabin on Kaminni Lake. In the spring of 2007, L&M Fly In decided to move their base of operations to Dryden, Ontario. At this time, we decided it was time to separate and let Gateway North Outfitters grow and get our fullest attention. The fall of 2009 we found ourselves purchasing another fly in outpost cabin on Sakwite Lake. We had been trying to purchase this outpost for years, and everything finally fell into place. This was a much needed addition as our guests were wanting something new and the demand for an excellent fly in walleye lake was incredible. The 2011 season we found ourselves purchasing and acquiring more BMA (Bear Management Areas) that adjoined our current areas. This was a great addition to give us more opportunities to better manage our area and handle a few more clients. Then later in the year we decided to purchase another fly in outpost cabin for the 2012 season. We purchased the Fishtrap Lake outpost cabin located next door to Sakwite. This lake offers more great smallmouth / walleye action. The 2013 season we decided to expand our fly in operation by purchasing a couple more outposts. We purchased Highrock Lake and Kinewan Lake. Both of these great locations are the only cabins on the lake and offer outstanding walleye / larger pike / abundant smallmouth bass. These lakes are right next door to Sakwite and Fishtrap Lake. We built a new cabin on Highrock Lake in the fall of 2014. This is a large deluxe outpost cabin with all the amenities. We strive for customer satisfaction and to make your trip one to remember. The 2015 season was a big year for us. We bought a PA-12 Piper Cub for doing camp checks and maintenance to ensure you have a great trip. We also purchased a twin engine Beech-18 for transporting our guests in and out of the outposts. Then in the fall of 2015 we purchased 2 more outpost camps. Jones Lake and Otukamamoan (Trout) Lake. Jones Lake offers excellent walleye, smallmouth, and pike. It is the only cabin on over 7500 acres of water and is located in the Turtle River Provincial Park. Trout Lake also offers excellent walleye, smallmouth, pike, and lake trout with over 13,000 acres of water and over 120 miles of shoreline to explore on the Trout River system. The 2017 season we built another large deluxe outpost camp replacing the old cabin on Jones Lake. This cabin is our largest and sleeps up to 12 people. Hunter(our son) also got his pilots license this year and started to fly out and service the camps. The 2018 season we purchased a Cessna 180 to help keep up with camp checks and routine maintenance work with growing business. The 2019 season we built a large deluxe outpost cabin on Dogfly Lake to keep up with our other cabins standards. Our daughters (Madeline and Matraca) also decided to start taking an active role working for Gateway North Outfitters. They are helping in taking care of the office, cabins, customer service, and anything else that might be needed. Your trip starts and ends with us and that is what separates us from everyone else. The people taking care of your vacation are the owners and care about your trip. We live in the area year round and enjoy the life that the business gives our family. We see our repeat guests as friends and look forward to meeting the new guests and sharing what we experience in the North country. We offer a trip for every season, so if you would like to experience something that we offer, feel free to contact us and see what we can do for you.
