Casting Big Flies for Pike

Timberwolf Lodge

Special guests The Planet D joined Bill Spicer on this trip to learn how to cast for Northern Pike.

For those fly fishers who want to hunt big northern pike, there is a special place in Algoma Country, Northern Ontario that has what you want -- Timberwolf Lodge.

Timberwolf Lodge is a fly-in facility that easily accommodates fly fishers who want to cast big flies for aggressive northern pike. This upscale fishing lodge is perfect for those who really want to relax, fish, and take in the "total wilderness" experience.

You want to come to Timberwolf Lodge with a 9- or 10-weight rod matched to a solid drag fly reel for these strong fish. Bring fly lines such as floating and intermediate to probe all parts of the water column. Great flies to bring: orange streamers (2/0), perch patterns, topwater flies like swing hips, tarpon poppers, and even mice patterns will all work well.

Located on beautiful Nagagami Lake, Timberwolf Lodge offers pleasant and well-equipped facilities that are designed with a rustic appeal. You can book American Plan fishing packages which include round-trip airfare from Hornepayne, daily meals, beautiful 18-foot cedar strip boats, and even shore lunch kits. After a day out on the lake, the central lounge is a great place to unwind around the fireplace.
