The Albany watershed, which runs into James Bay, is a true wilderness area blessed with fantastic fishing. It is here that Seven Lakes Wilderness Camps has built numerous cabins on lakes with access to river systems. The lakes hold healthy populations of pike and walleye while the rivers usually have brook trout in every riffle. This is a fly fisher's paradise where presenting both subsurface and topwater flies will produce good results. For the pike, large poppers in black work well, while using large streamers in orange, white and chartreuse seem to be very effective. The brook trout can be caught on numerous dry flies with caddis patterns being the most popular. For streamers, woolly buggers in black, purple, and white seem to have best results. Bring five weight rods for the trout, and eight weight rods are ideal for the pike and walleye. This is fly-in fishing that is fun for groups of anglers who want a DIY experience that is second to none!
