Nestor Falls Wildlife
March 11, 2014
When you visit Nestor Falls, you know you’ll catch Walleye, Northern Pike, and Lake Trout. That’s a fact! But a couple of our outposts offer an opportunity here and there to spot creatures of a different sort. Ontario’s Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, home to one of the largest herds of Woodland Caribou south of Hudson Bay, includes our incredibly secluded Larus Lake outposts. We’re the only outfitter on the lake, with two cabins: one on a lovely sand beach and the other in a well-sheltered bay. During the spring months, we have a cow that will bring her calf out onto the sand beach, right in front of the cabin! If you won’t be spending time at Larus this year, not to worry. Our visitors report sightings of Woodland Caribou at Malette, Clear, and Cairns as well.
Of course, releasing plenty of fish is certainly the top priority during a fly-in trip. However, seeing a variety of wildlife makes for great memories (and funny stories). Gray Jays–or as we call them, Whiskey Jacks–learn that humans can be a bottomless source of tasty food. One of our guests even discovered that a Whiskey Jack would eat off his knee! Sharp-eyed visitors have seen pine martens, fawns, loons, and more. Fortunately, they all share beautiful pictures with us to post here for you.
