Guest Comments: Wow what a fantastic trip.
 Nicole and Lucas did a fantastic job helping us plan our trip clear through helping us get our luggage back on the Van going back-to the airport.
 Trevor our pilot was fantastic, great flights in-and-out to our remote location on Jones Lake, on time departing and picking us up. The accommodations at Jones Lake were more than just a place on a remote Lake. It had all of the amenities that you would ever need. The fishing was even better with lots of small mouth bass 18" and over with the biggest one at 21 and a 1/2 inches of northern Pike was just as good with a 1/2 a dozen Pike over 30" with the best catch of the week topping out at 40". Didn't fish for walleye very much but manage to catch enough for dinner. Incredible trip great fishing and a great outfitting company thanks again Nicole and Lucas for a memorable trip of a life time will be back.

Lake: Trout Lake

Group Name: Christianson

Guest Comments: Huge, beautiful lake.  Worth it to just come and explore.  I've been doing fly-ins for 20 years and as usual, Lucas and Nicole served up a great time.  We had perfect weather for it, one day of boomers and on/off rain.  Didn't get any trout but boated lots of smallmouth in the 14-19" range.  Walleye were hard to find but were all eaters... caught most fish on Mepps and deep-diving raps near rock reefs.  Lake is so big we did a lot of trolling, sitting still in one spot not as effective.  Made it to Sakwite Falls and it was worth the trip.

Walleye in weeds in 6-8ft.  Used crank baits for all species. Jigs for walleyes. Upper Fishtrap is worth the trip. Take boat up portage as far as you can. get out and walk up beaver dam and use boat to paddle up rest of the portage to waterfall. Walk up to boat(you will get wet). Crank baits worked great for walleye and pike on Upper Fishtrap.

Northern were all around the lake with high numbers and good size with several caught in the 36 to 38 inch range.

Top water was hitting at the mouth of the river at rapid pace. Never seen anything like it. Walleyes were lighter this trip, but still enough to feed 4 guys every night.

Group Name: Rhudy

Guest Comments: Great time had by all. Enjoyed another trip with the Adams family. Smallmouth were just starting to come on the nests at the end of our trip. Caught plenty of walleye to eat and after 30 years of fly in trips we finally scored on catching some lake trout. They are one of the strongest fish we have every caught. All the lake trout caught were to large to eat. We had a wide range of weather from cold, rainy, windy, and hot. We will be back again.

Lake: Kinewan Lake

Dates: 5/29 - 6/3/2017

Group Name: Robbins

Guest Comments: Another wonderful trip to Kinewan. Weather was unstable starting out, but then perfect.  Fishing was a bit more challenging than years past, but that’s probably because it has always been so good. We found a few congregations of walleyes that were productive and scattered singles.  Leeches and pink and orange twist tail jigs were our go to baits. A number of fish caught right off the dock.  Not great numbers, but more than we could eat. And we ate walleyes every day. Bass were active. Northern erratic, but exciting as usual. Accommodations were great, as they always are.  It is undoubtedly the best week of every year. Already planning our next trip.

Guest Comments: Fishing was great off the dock, 20+" walleyes every evening. Lindy Rigs were the go to tackle along the rocky shores for eyes. Smallies were plentiful on top water around rocky points on the cloudy days with multiple 18-20" fatties. Over all great experience and great accommodations. Gateway North is a must if heading to Ontario.

Guest Comments: Dogfly never really disappoints .
Wed and Thursday were exceptional fishing days !!
We caught over 40 bass 16-19 inches all day long. We had 4 smallies that pushed past the 19" mark but not quite 20. Lots of trout casting spinner baits of all things. A dozen Northern with the largest being 36".
Front came through Thursday evening with 15-20 mph wind gusts and a temp at night of 34 degrees. It was cold and blustery Friday and Saturday and fishing was slow. All in all we had 2 days that most fisherman don't see in a week.
Thanks guys as always
