Would anyone be willing to recommend a canoe route or lake with a high probability of successful pike fishing, preferably away from cottages and motorized boats? Any guidance or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Wawiagama Lake has great pike fishing. I haven't been there in about 8 or 9 years but there used to be lots of good sized pike in there. Best spots were by the weeds at the south west of the lake (by the creek between the cliff and the western road access)and on the south shore by the rocks close to the camp site. I'm not sure what the road from Emerald Lake to the access looks like since it has been a long time since I've been there. No cottages on the lake and there should not be many motorboats around, or at least not during the week.

I have always had luck on Olier and Denudus Lakes. They aren't too far and no motor boats. They are smaller quiet lakes. just troll in your canoe around and around the lakes. The small bay on Olier where the stream from Denudus comes in is a good spot, but have caught pike, pickerel, and bass everywhere.

By the way, there is a giant fish in Ollier lake that ran off with one of my lures. I've caught a 25 pound pike before (not in Olier or Denedus) and whatever has my lure is bigger or at least tugs harder.

We went to Wasaksina last summer. It was a beautiful lake with great campsites, but we had a hard time finding anything but bass. Some of the guys want to go back because the lake is so nice, but Id like to find a different spot and see something new again this year.

I was thinking of going back to Wasaksina late next August 2016. What are the conditions of the camp sites. I haven't been there for 10 years but really liked it.}

We stayed on an island at the north end of the lake where Driftwood runs in. It was an awesome site. Plenty of room with a great view of the lake. I think we're heading back there in the second week of August.

Is Wasaksina getting very busy in August. We were there about 10 years back and it was real quiet in August.

just some boats from the lodge on Herridge lake, but Wasaksina is pretty big so it doesn't feel crowded.

You could try the Diamond Wakimika Obabika loop. It's nice, but busy. If you want to get off the beaten path a little (at least compared to Cross-was sacks and diamond Wakimika Obabika), you could put in at Temagami, and arrange fori pick-up at Anima Nippissing Lake. That would be very different for ya. I don't know how much time you have, but you could figure out a loop trip up that way.

We went into Gamagowong a few years back and caught our limit in pike very quickly. I don't think anyone went 10 minutes without a hit.

are there any canoe outfitters in the chiniguchi area? We're about 7 hours south of temagami so bringing up canoes is kind of a pain. I've also wondered a lot about areas east of temagami like glasford and maxam lake as well as the matabitchuan. Would anyone know about walleye/pike fishing in that area? thanks for all the responses by the way.

Sportsman's lodge on Kukagami lake rents canoes. George, the owner, is a fisherman himself, he should know about pikes.

Hey Hahny, you mention Gamagowong as good for Pike, is it worth the haul in for a day of fishing? are they big pike?
