Ontario Walleye Factory: Pasha Lake Cabins

Fish like this one bit jigs and jerkbaits all day long

I have no doubt a fly-in wilderness fishing trip is the ultimate angling adventure but it doesn’t come without its drawbacks. Weight restrictions, poor weather, lengthy travel times and, of course, hefty costs are just a few of the reasons why a fly-in is still on the bucket list for most anglers.

But there are remedies for the fly-in fishing blues, and one of my favourites is Pasha Lake Cabins. As one of Ontario’s top drive-to fishing destinations, Pasha features more than two dozen different day trips into some of the most breathtaking lakes and rivers imaginable.

On a recent road trip to shoot a couple of Fish’n Canada Show episodes, co-host Pete Bowman and I made a stop at this fisherman’s paradise near Lake Nipigon and it was everything we’ve come to expect of it. We’ve used Pasha Lake as our base on three other occasions, and each time this Northwestern Ontario jewel has lived up to its reputation.

It has all the benefits of a remote fly-in pristine wilderness and seemingly un-fished waters but with all the conveniences of a drive-to lake. You see, when we go on location to shoot a show, having the luxury of driving in our tons of angling and camera gear is a huge plus. Not that Pete and I aren’t up to a little bushwhacking!

On our most recent visit to Pasha, we decided to take a 2 km hike into what’s billed as a walleye factory, Onamon Lake. Aside from a few aches and pains schlepping all that gear on our backs, we think the resulting episode ranks in the top five walleye shows we’ve ever produced.

The fishing was just that outstanding!
