The 30 Most Northern Fly-In Fishing Outposts in Ontario

Top 30 Outposts Furthest North fp2

The further I go the better the fishing will be.   Right?  Well, perhaps.   Most of the lakes in Northern Ontario are remote with very limited access.   Many are also on large river systems, like the Albany, Cobham and Pipestone Rivers.  Those two things alone should be strong indicators of truly amazing fisheries.  However, it's still fishing and there are never any guarantees!

Below I list the 30 Northernmost Fly-In Fishing Outposts in Ontario for those looking to go as far as one can go.    How northern a particular outpost camp is located is based entirely on its latitude.   Also, there are two outpost camps in this list that are actually located in Manitoba (MB), but because the outfitter is based in Ontario I include them in my database.
