Whether your first or your fifty first walleye fishing trip, each trip is filled with anticipation, excitement, and challenge. Conditions will almost never be the same. Late ice out, early ice out, too much rain, too little rain, warmer than normal, cooler than normal, the water is high, the water is low, too rainy, too windy, not enough wind, and/or many other combinations.
One thing you don't want to worry about is your lodging. Finding a great camp that is clean and comfortable and has all the amenities you desire allows you to focus daily on where and how the walleye are biting. Walleye are typically caught jigging, trolling a crankbait, slow trolling a bait with a spinner, or casting. Your best source for each trip is local information - which camp owners are usually more than glad to share that with you. Even better and more hands on would be to hire a local guide - let them take you and show you where and how folks are catching the walleye at the time you are there.
The three most common ways to find a great Canadian Fishing Camp or Lodge are:
Ask a good fishing friend or fishing associate at a sporting goods store who has been on a Walleye Fishing Trip. They are more than willing to talk fishing and share with you the location of their latest adventure. The internet is full of websites for hundreds of fishing camps across Canada. Here are several good ones:
We do not represent Taylor's Cove or handle their reservations, we simply report we had ten years of one week trips. The fishing was excellent, Ed Taylor is awesome, and his lodging is also very good. Taylor's Cove Resort is centrally located on the Canada side of Rainy Lake, not far outside of Fort Frances, Ontario - a great location for a walleye fishing trip. Several new cabins, two large ones, and constantly remodeling older cabins. Groups from 2 up to 12 are easy to handle. Located on Bears Pass, a natural passage connecting Red Gut Bay with Swell Bay on Rainy Lake, you have great access to some of the finest fishing experiences around. Rainy Lake features a lot of walleye, as well as northern pike - some of which are very large You will also encounter an occasional Muskie. Rainy Lake also holds lake trout, and crappie. Small mouth bass though plentiful, were once a secret here. The word is out, as you can find many that are above 5 pounds. We feature a separate memory page from our trips to Taylors Cove - links below.

We do not represent Little Canada Camp, we just report we had several great trips to their camp. About a 3 and 1/2 hour drive north of Fort Frances is Little Canada Camp, located on the English River just below the dam from Lac Seul. The English river system is very long, flowing into Lac Seul and exiting that lake at the dam near Ear Falls. The English River is full of Walleye and is sometimes called a walleye factory! This does not mean they are always easy to catch, but it does mean on average you will likely catch more of this delicious fish than most other places. Can you think of a better walleye fishing trip? You will also find perch and northern pike. Plenty of Bald Eagles can be seen, and don't be surprised if you see a moose or two.
