Give Dad the Perfect Northwest Ontario Father's Day
He probably taught you how to drive, how to throw and catch, how to fish and how to build the perfect campfire. He gave you his time and his money and his advice. Father and Son, Jerry and Ben Stiller in Zoolander Oh yeah! And also tons and tons of his love. As the day to celebrate Dads gets closer, we look at a few ways that this man who gives so much can take a little time for himself? He could… 1. Pitch a tent There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when camping in the Northwest Ontario wilderness. Camping is available within city limits at Trowbridge Falls and Chippewa Park campgrounds and many nearby Provincial parks offer…
Making lifelong memories out on the lake
Your Dad taught you how to fish; now it's time to thank your Dad this Father's Day. Ask anyone how they learned how to fish and I'll bet the majority of them will say "My dad used to take me fishing". It's almost like a right of passage to have your dad take you out fishing when you're a child.  At the resorts and lodges in Sunset Country you'll often see three generations coming up year after year. The grandfathers started taking their kids, and then the kids started having kids of their own and they started coming up too. It's so great to see many generations heading out on the lake for a day of fishing or a week…
Manitoulin day trip rest stop with Mike
Let’s face it, Dads don’t always get the credit they deserve. When you’re young, Dad teaches you how to ride a bike or bait a hook, while dealing with all the tantrums and “boo-boos” along the way; when you're a teenager, he has to ride along with you, flinching in fear of you scratching the car, as he desperately tries to teach you to parallel-park; and once you reach adulthood and leave the nest, he gets the call in the middle of the night because your furnace stopped working, and you know Dad can fix it! Dads work hard and are sometimes under-appreciated, so give him a well-deserved break this Father’s Day, doing something he really enjoys. We asked a…
Heading back from a day of fishing in Ontario
You're sitting at your desk on hump day, thinking "I'd rather be somewhere else". As I was writing this article, I was thinking the exact same thing. It's sunny and just about 70F (20C) outside. I was looking at these photos and really wishing I could get out into the wilderness I call home rather than in this office. Once you get a look at these photos, I'm sure you'll agree. Here are 10 places I'd rather be right now than at my desk.  Sandy Beach on Lake of the Woods Guests at Tomahawk Resort take a leisurely boat ride to this secluded beach on Lake of the Woods for a swim. With the water being below normal this year,…

Erik Lohn at KaBeeLo Lodge
Over the last 100 years, bush flying has been used in Northern Ontario as an important resource for reaching otherwise inaccessible areas.   Many bush pilots across the region have made their living by utilizing their expertise in flying highly customized, rugged aircraft to commute people and cargo to the most isolated areas throughout the northern wilderness. It is a necessity for which many camps and lodges in the area rely to transport their guests and goods to and from their destinations. Most remote outposts each have their own personal bush pilots to whom they entrust this incredible responsibility. For one man, however, being a bush pilot is more than just a necessity. It’s a way of life.   Erik…

Arrow Lake at Northwest Flying Inc.
Imagine for a moment a pristine lake, cloaked by thousands of acres of lush wilderness, stretched out as far as the eye can see.   Waves crash and the sound resonates through you as they sizzle into layers on the shore. Unsullied by engines revving in midday traffic because there aren't any cars. Not for miles. No city lights to dilute the horizon as the sky shifts from blue to amber. Your toes plunge into wet sand as you take an evening stroll and the call of a distant loon fills your mind with the fond hope of a summer-eternal. Imagine you're here. Kyle Wilcox at Arrow Lake A bonfire roars on the beach as you and your friends share…

Beautiful day in April in Nestor Falls, Ontario, Canada
Other than a few northern outpost lakes, the lakes in Northwest Ontario are free of ice! What a difference a year makes.   As many of you may recall, the Winter/Spring of 2014 saw harsh conditions with record breaking snow and cold temperatures. 2015 is a different story. With an average winter, the lakes all started opening up in mid-to-late April and most were free of ice in early May. The southern lakes like Rainy Lake along the US/Canada border usually open up first, followed by parts of Lake of the Woods and Eagle Lake, then the more northern lakes such as Perrault Lake, Lac Seul and Red Lake follow. The northern outpost lakes and the deep lake trout lakes…
