Fish for walleye, pike and brook trout from this outpost fishing camp in northern Ontario. For those who prefer a real wilderness lake fishing experience this outpost camp on the Albany River is an excellent choice. This very secluded lake fishing camp is located at the east end of Makokibatan Lake close to the entrance of the Albany River. The fishing is the real highlight at this camp, offering every kind of water and every kind of challenge. At this outpost you set your own pace, and your biggest decision is where to fish first.
Makokibatan Lake is over 18 miles long, and famous for its large and plentiful walleye. The cold water and steady currents of the mighty Albany River also make for some monster Northern Pike. If you are in search of some extra adventure, let one of your guides take you downstream in search of the legendary Albany River brook trout.
With the added benefit of basic housekeeping services, this outpost offers all the excitement of the Albany River; wicked trophy walleye fishing and available world class guided brook trout trips -all on your own schedule. This cozy outpost cabin is located 3 miles away from the main lodge -far enough for privacy but close enough that help is there when you need it. This one-of-a kind outpost features a spacious cabin with a surreal view of the setting sun.

Arrive in Thunder Bay and check-in to the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel located right on the harbour. Situated right downtown in the middle of the entertainment district, there’s a lot for guests to see and do all within walking distance. Arrive early and try your luck at the casino, take a leisurely walk down by the waterfront and explore Prince Arthur’s Landing, sample delicious food at one of 25 different restaurants, or watch the sun set over Lake Superior and stare out at the legendary Sleeping Giant. Enjoy your night on the waterfront. Airport shuttle and Continental Breakfast included.
After a quick shuttle ride, make on-site preparations for an early morning departure on a legendary deHavilland Otter, your Canadian magic carpet ride direct to the outpost. Upon arrival at the outpost you will be greeted by staff, who will provide an orientation of the outpost and the equipment. After showing you to your cabin, our staff will help to get you out on the lake as quickly, or slowly, as you like -after all it’s your vacation.
The beauty of staying at an outpost is there is no daily routine; it is whatever you make it out to be. Each day offers the chance for something different. Sleep in late or wake up at the crack of dawn for some early morning fishing before even contemplating what to make for breakfast -the choice is yours.
Spend the day wetting a line in the many tributaries of the Albany searching for trophy walleye, or perhaps take advantage of the relative closeness of the main lodge and book a world class guided river trip for brook trout. Stop for lunch whenever you feel hungry or feel like a change of pace.
Summer nights in the north seem endless, allowing anglers to make the most of hot fishing. Stay out as late as you want or come in for the evening and cook a hearty meal relaxing with friends by a roaring camp fire. Be sure to take advantage of the surreal views of the setting sun offered at the outpost.
Saying “good bye” is never an easy task; mixed emotions arrive as the return of the Otter signifies your foray into the wilderness has unfortunately come to an end. We say “see you soon”, and we mean it. It’s great to welcome back old friends. We hope that we have been successful in creating a memory to last a lifetime and have delivered an out of this world experience…
Safe travels back home and hope to see you again next year!
