Situated at Cochrane, Ontario, Cochrane Air Services has been providing remote fishing and hunting vacations for over 40 years. We truly have the most incredible fly in wilderness outpost adventures in Ontario, if not all of Canada. If you are looking for a fly-in fishing trip with excellent pike, walleye and brook trout fishing then you need to look no further than our 20 + outpost cabins and lakes. Our fly in outpost cabins are well supplied and maintained, with excellent equipment.
We have virgin-quality fishing. This is due to the remoteness of the lakes, government protected areas/seasons and our progressive catch and release fishing policies that keep the fish in the lake! In addition, we limit the bookings of our outposts to only six weeks per year even though our fishing season runs for 20 weeks. This limited fishing pressure means incredible pike, walleye and brook trout fishing. You can certainly keep one or two slot sized fish for shore lunch and the rest go back for others to catch.
Our fly-in moose hunts offer you the remoteness that is becoming difficult to find in other areas. Traditional success rates for groups harvesting or seeing a moose is over 80%. Air Cochrane is issued a limited number of adult moose tags each season. You need to book your hunt early for the best locations!
If you are looking to create your own adventure in the Cochrane area, we are a year round licenced and insured air carrier operating two DHC-2 Beaver aircraft and one Cessna 180 aircraft. There are a handful of rivers that flow into James Bay which are accessible by air for an incredible canoe adventure.
Canada's James Bay Lowlands consist of over 10,000 square miles of wilderness. The Cochrane District is renowned for over 400 lakes and rivers. You will fish for the mighty Northern Pike, the delicious Walleye, tricky Speckled Trout, tons of perch, wiley Whitefish and massive Sturgeon. Our lakes are teeming with hundreds of fish that only a fly-in can provide.
Through government protection, careful management, catch-and-release and rotating lakes, AIR COCHRANE CAS Ltd. is committed to providing you with a quality fishing vacation. We do insist that you release the trophy fish and have fiberglass mounts made as a reminder of your big catch.
Most lakes have both Walleye & Northern Pike. Perhaps the tastiest fish in our waters, average size for Walleye is 1.5-2lbs. Numerous and fiesty, this species is a treat for all anglers. Bucktail jigs work well for Walleye.
The main sport fish in Northern Ontario is the veracious Northern Pike. Pike favour spoons (red & white daredevils and silver minnows) and casting into weed beds can produce lunkers up to 20lbs. Found in abundance in our lakes, we have the best pike producing area in Canada.
Found in the rivers and streams in our area CASL has outposts which access these rivers for speckled trout. Best time for trout is July, Aug & Sept. when you can catch trout up to 8, 20 and 22 inches. See link below for more info on brook trout fishing and our conservation policies.
Outpost Camps and Lakes
All of our locations feature the only commercial cabin on each lake (except Nettogami Lake which features two cabins both exclusively operated by us). Construction is varied from rustic log to modern plywood to new “cottage-style” siding. Some of our cabins are open room while others have separate bedrooms. All of our cabins are equipped with cooking & eating utensils, propane lights, stove, fridge and BBQ. There is one boat & motor provided for every two fishermen. Mixed outboard fuel is readily available at each cabin. Inquire for the specifics on the individual camp you are considering.
