Fly-In Fishing – No Longer Just For Your Bucket List

Our operators will whisk you up, up & away to pristine, remote lakes & the fishing trip of a lifetime!

The truly unique experience of flying into the wilds of Northeastern Ontario to a remote, pristine lake that is yours alone: being dropped off by floatplane at your own private outpost cabin for the adventure of a lifetime. This getaway isn’t just for the rich and famous!

Northeastern Ontario has five family-friendly businesses that offer this truly unique experience, and it's more affordable than you might think:

Lauzon Aviation

Lauzon Aviation gives you two points of entry into the wilderness for your fly-in adventure. Take a floatplane from Marquette Lake, just 1.5 hours north of Sudbury or from Lauzon Lake (halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie) to a simple rustic outpost cabin on a peaceful Northeastern Ontario lake. The opportunity is there for fun, fishing, hunting, solitude, and amazing outdoor scenery. These timeless experiences will long be remembered whether you're six or 65!

Lakeland Airways

Start your adventure at Lakeland Airways, located 1.5 hours north of North Bay in the town of Temagami. Whether you're flying in for a one day fishing excursion, a camping and canoe trip, or a stay at an outpost fishing and hunting camp located on a remote lake, each option is selected just for you to truly capture the spirit of this magnificent area. Lakeland Airways has just the vacation spot to make your trip one you'll always remember.

Sudbury Aviation

Sudbury Aviation operates 14 modern fly-in outpost camps that are located in some of the finest fishing and hunting areas in Northern Ontario, just 30-40 minutes by float plane north of Sudbury! The comfortable, well-equipped cabins come complete with propane stoves, lights, cooking and eating utensils, refrigerators, ice and icebox, boats, motors, and gas, not to mention a good old-fashioned sauna/bath house to rejuvenate your soul. Find everything you'll need for your fishing or hunting getaway and then some.

With 32 remote, fully equipped, wilderness outpost cabins to choose from, your fishing and hunting vacation is sure to be an adventure. For those looking for a little more pampering, Nemegosenda Lake Lodge offers a full American Plan fly-in lodge experience. For those wanting something in between, there are Housekeeping Cabins – both fly-in and drive-in. Air Ivanhoe truly offers something for everyone!

Kesagami Wilderness Lodge/Cochrane Air

North of Cochrane, amid the sprawling unspoiled wilderness, lies Kesagami Lake and the Lodge named after it. More than just a hunting and fishing lodge, Kesagami offers handsomely appointed rooms and rustic cabins along with recreation area/lounge for guests to kick back and relax in a true first class destination. Exceptional meals and welcoming staff are on hand to take care of your every need.


Regardless of where you choose to vacation, these Northeastern Ontario properties offer pristine, remote lakes, trophy fishing, specatular hunting, wildlife viewing, and true wilderness experiences.

A fly-in fishing getaway is a must-do to check off your bucket list, but after one visit we're certain it won’t be your last! The beauty of Northeastern Ontario and the warm and welcome reception of our outpost operators will have you coming back year after year.
