Fishing on Amisk Lake
In September it’s not impossible to catch 50 Walleye in an
hour jigging with a lead head and minnow in the walleye holes at the river. A
grand slam (two or three walleye at a time) in your boat is not uncommon! Many
walleye have to be released, you will exceed your five walleye possession limit
and your 21” slot limit. It is exhilarating when fishing in the crisp fall
air surrounded with the breathtaking colours of fall.
Walleye (Pickerel) Fishing
Fall Fishing is the Greatest!
Spring and Summer Walleye
spring you do just as well catching walleye in the shallow bays. In the
summer they seek the cooler deeper waters and feed off the banks and underwater
reefs of the lake. You catch them with bottom bouncers, worms, crank
baits, and other fish teasers.
You will enjoy eating the fish caught from Amisk Lake’s
unpolluted waters. The cold waters produce firm, mouth-watering fish. We are
told that the Northern from our lake are as good as the Walleye from the warmer
waters further south. The best eating size is 1 ½-2 pound Walleye and 4-6
pound Northern. There is nothing like fresh fish virtually jumping into the pan
for a delicious shore lunch or cooked in the comfort of your cabin for your
evening meal. Whether you deep fry, pan fry or wrap the fish in tin foil and
bake over an open fire, you will savor every bite. Fresh is best! Want some
recipes email me at email@example.com
and I will send you fish recipes.
For over half a century Amisk Lake has produced trophy
sized fish. Lunkers over 20 pounds still latch onto anglers hooks.
Amisk Lakes' record is over 35 pounds. We encourage fishermen to release
all big fish (Northern and Walleye) as each trophy fish leaves over a million
eggs in the fall and winter spawn. They are great for bragging, but not
for eating. If you want a trophy, take a picture, a few measurements and
let them go. You can get fiberglass reproductions made that look exactly
like the real thing. This spring while crossing the border for a sports
show, US Customs had to get their fish biologist to come and examine our photo
reproduction fish by Hawking Taxidermists. He examined our reproduction
very carefully before he was convinced that in fact it was a reproduction.
By releasing the trophies you will be doing your part to ensure the fish stocks
remain good for generations to come. Take home your limit in the smaller
good eating sizes and get a very convincing photo replica of your trophy
We have all the facilities to get you fishing: A marina
and bait shop with an excellent stock of fishing tackle, bait, maps, gas, oil,
fishing licenses and a walk in freezer. Many of our guests save their filleting
knives for Gerry Angell to put a professional razor sharp edge on them (bandage
is included). Fillet your fish on our clean, stainless steel filleting table.
Well maintained boats and motors of all sizes may be rented. The Marina also
contains motor parts and repairs. Boat launching is free. We have marina boat
slips for overnight water parking upon request.
Anyone who would like to fly out fishing in a float plane for a day of
fishing on a remote lake can do so! We have boats and motors on three lakes
for your use, Wildnest Lake is well known for excellent Walleye and Northern
fishing, Errington lake for its' abundant lake trout, and Neagle Lake for
Northerns. Call for details.
