FAQ

When is the best time of year to come fishing?

Because of the remoteness of our lakes the fishing stays consistent year round from opening weekend the 3rd Saturday in May to the end of September. May and September will be your cooler months with July being your hottest weather, August is our favorite as the weather is most enjoyable with temperatures in the mid 70's.

Which lake is the best?

Fishing our remote Canadian Lakes often produce fishing stories that even your closest friends will doubt. Nestor Falls Fly-In Outposts offers some spectacular fishing at all of our lakes. Nestor Falls Fly-In was one of the first Outposts operations in Northern Ontario to implement a catch and release policy as not to over stress the fishery. That visionary policy has served our operation well throughout the years as we continue to enjoy world-class fishing and significant repeat business from our guests. Every year the average size of the fish goes up as well as the number of fish released. That being said, all the lakes are remarkable and will serve as a great getaway for all!
