Canadian Outpost Fishing

Updated on October 20, 2010

Canadian outpost fishing makes a great vacation for those who love the outdoors and want to spend some time in nature. Outpost fishing gives you the opportunity to see areas that are little touched by development or civilization as you fish for walleye, salmon, pike, bass, trout, and other species. Canada is home to hundreds of thousands of pristine rivers and lakes that are inaccessible by road. Outfitters throughout the country offer flyin fishing trips in which they fly you in to a remote lake or part of a river for outpost fishing. Some outfitters offer guided fishing trips at the location, while others offer lodging for you to stay by yourself and fish. Outpost fishing gives you a unique opportunity to see some of Canada’s wildest and most beautiful scenery while fishing the country’s clear waters.  

How to Choose an Outfitter

Outpost fishing usually requires the services of a knowledgeable outfitter. There are many choices throughout Canada that offer services and instruction for fisherman of all experience levels, from beginners to experts. A good outfitter should provide you with advice about the area in which you’ll be fishing as well as basic transportation to get you to your outpost fishing location. For additional fees, outfitters will also provide tackle and bait and even cleaning services after the catch.  Look for an outfitter that offers an outpost fishing vacation package that will suit your needs and level of experience.

What to Expect From Your Outpost Fishing Trip

Many Canadian outpost fishermen choose to stay at a flyin fishing camp. This is an easy option, as most outfitters who provide your transportation offer packages that include your lodging. A typical outpost fishing camp consists of a lodge which will provide meals and sometimes entertainment. Since most outpost fishing cabins cater exclusively to fishing groups, they will also provide resources to make your fishing experience easier, including fish cleaning areas, fish packing and freezing, and freezers for storage. Some even include fishing licenses in your overall daily rates. The amenities offered at outpost fishing camps vary, so be sure to choose one that fits your needs.

How to Prepare for Your Outpost Fishing Trip

Outpost fishing by its very nature isolates you in nature. While this can be a gratifying experience, it also requires quite a bit of preparation to make sure everything runs smoothly—you will not be able to drive down the street to a gas station to pick up that Tylenol you forgot to bring! At minimum, be sure to pack weather-appropriate clothing, waterproof shoes, beach towels, tackle and bait, and a first aid kit.
