Hi. I will be heading to wasaksina lake this summer with some friends. We have been going to the French river for the past 12 years and decided it was time for a change. I would really appreciate any fishing tips that can be had for this lake. We are mostly into pike fishing for the fight, but it would be great to fry up a bit of pickerel. Also, is there a campsite on this lake big enough for 5 tents, or 2 sites close together?

My family and I traveled from Iceland to Wasaksina last summer and it took us just under 3 hours (including the portage). It is worth noting though, that we were a family of four (two kids ages 5-3) so we were likely travelling slower than the average paddler. If I were solo it probably would have taken closer to 2 hours.

I'm not a fisherman so I can't help you there.

As for sites, we stayed at the site to the north of the large island and it would likely be large enough for 5 tents depending on their size.

Hope that helps!

Thanks. That's about the same amount of time that we are used to. I think we only have 3 or 4 tents to deal with, so finding a site shouldn't be an issue. Do you remember seeing any cliffs on Wasaksina that were jumpable (into the water)?

No, I don't recall any cliffs but to be honest I wasn't looking for them.
