“We had a wonderful vacation. Everything was great. Having the 2 camp checks was something we were not used to at other places. It was comforting. The additional ice and bottle of wine was over the top. We were used to being dropped off and not see anyone until it was time to leave.”— Randy & Beate Stern (Cairns Lake Outpost)

Journey 65 miles north of our float plane base in Flin Flon to beautiful Barnett Lake. Your dream of adventure fishing takes a wilder turn when you reach this 7-mile long, 70 foot deep tea-colored body of water, fed by a creek in its south east corner and home to phenomenal walleye and pike. This remote lake absolutely jumps with pike in the 30” to 40” size range, and it’s not uncommon to boat one upwards of 45”. World class walleye fishing is Barnett’s rule-of- thumb, though, with groups catching up to 18 trophy sized (over 28”) walleye in one week, and lake records shooting upwards of 35”. Easier access to the dock due to recent renovations. If you dream big, Barnett Lake’s for you!
You’ll love it. Everybody does. Cairns is one of the most picturesque lakes in Canada, situated 60 miles north of our float base and 40 miles from the nearest road and surrounded by 400’ hills. Your 2-bedroom cabin is nestled on a beautiful sand beach that just happens to be a hot bed for midsummer walleye fishing. Ten miles from tip to tip and part of the Waysaykamik River system, this vibrant body of water boasts abundant quantities of lake trout and pike, as well as walleye, enough to keep the most rigorous fishers busy. Although the lake has an average depth of 30’ to 40’, the lake trout pull together in schools for the summer season in holes that punch down to 80’! One of our most popular outposts, Cairns Lake will become your annual tradition, as it has for many of our guests.
“We had a great time at Barnett Lake this year … What we really enjoy is the seclusion out there, great bonding time for our family… Everybody at Kississing did a great job, could not be better. Thanks for the great service.”— Tom Hansen (Barnett Lake Outpost)
Big dreams. Big water. Big fish. It’s not Hawaii, but life’s just as easy when you’re on your own on our one-of-a-kind Big Island. Only 2 miles from the main lodge on Kississing Lake, the fishing opportunities on the Big Island are limitless, with 500 square miles of lake, over 1,000 islands and more than 1,000 miles of shoreline. Yet you have your cozy camp’s proximity to the lodge with its many advantages. The close proximity to the lodge give you the opportunity to fabulous dining, expert guides, day fly-out options, and the chance to pick up additional supplies, PLUS… the Big Island’s the only camp we operate that has 24-hour electricity! While you’ll enjoy the challenge of fishing a big lake on your own, we highly recommend that you consider bringing along a handheld GPS to take the guess work out of map reading and all but eliminate your chances of getting lost. Then relax and enjoy what you came to do – experience a superb Canadian northern wilderness adventure and go after some serious fish!
We love to bring our new anglers to Phelan Lake. This tea-stained water offers a fantastic first experience. If the surrounding landscape doesn’t leave you speechless, your ample haul of pike and walleye will. Phelan is a manageable size of seven by two miles and most of the lake is between five and 18 feet deep, though you’ll find pockets that reach 40 feet. It’s a great place to test the waters and you just might nab your master angler title in no time. Simply put, this lake will spoil you. Try out Phelan in May, June or July for best results, and don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Sometimes you’re not looking for a challenge; sometimes you just want to fill the boat with fish. Exploring Nimei is a great way to do just that. This is a small chain of lakes, at only six by three miles, and it offers incredible, ample shoreline for you to investigate and call your own. We like to recommend Nimei to beginners, because it consistently provides a spectacular fishing experience all season long. You’ll catch so many walleye, pike and lake trout that you’ll be calling yourself a master angler by the time you head home.
Our newest outpost, Hassett was constructed of milled logs in 2002, with no expense spared making it an ideal haven for adventurers who want to put aside the walleye jigs and focus on the big guys for a week. The cabin sits in the southeast corner of the lake, in the epicenter of its best trout fishing. Two by three miles in size and 110' deep, Hassett’s spring-fed waters are so clear you can see the trout on your line, 10 feet down! And watch out for the giant pike cruising the shallows.
A quarter mile from the cabin lies Hassett’s sister lake, Guthrie. A 10-minute walk takes you to a fishery that couldn’t be more different. Guthrie’s shallow tea colored waters offer pike the same way Hassett offers trout – big in both numbers and size. It hardly matters what lure you use; daily catches of 100 fish or more are common. Guthrie is a pike factory not to be missed!
Located 60 miles north of our floatplane base in Flin Flon and 40 miles from the nearest road, Siers Lake puts the “wild” in wilderness. Our cabin on this popular outpost is the only structure on the 3 diverse lakes Siers opens up to you. With an average depth of 20’, Siers itself is a shallow tea hued body that sets the bar high time and again for excellent walleye fishing, both in numbers and size. Large pike are not uncommon either, making for added excitement when that massive jackfish decides to take a pass at your walleye jig. To the north lies Einarson Lake, 30’ deep and connected to Siers by a creek. Crystal clear, cold, and spring-fed, Einarson’s alive with lake trout and giant walleye. Past average trout size is 3 to 5 pounds, with several in the 20 to 30 pound range also recorded. Last of the trio is Bear Lake, accessible via a short portage off Siers’s southeast corner. With a structure and fish resembling those of Siers, Bear Lake offers walleye aplenty and ample large pike waiting to bend your pole and pull your drag. This is a triple threat fisher’s heaven!
Situated in the heart of varied water systems, Waskwei provides access to all of the lakes in the surrounding area that together create the outdoorsman’s paradise of northern pike, walleye, and lake trout hotspots that truly represent Canada’s finest fishing. At eight miles long, four miles wide and with a maximum depth of 80’, Waskwei is unusually large for an outpost lake. Liberally dotted with islands and featuring varying depths, the lake has much to offer on its own and many of our guests choose to fish Waskwei exclusively.
Note: Kississing is not the only cabin on Waskwei Lake (it is shared with another outfitter).
This is the lake for avid anglers who enjoy the challenge of “hunting” for big fish. Marchel Lake offers a variety of drop offs, weed lines, sunken islands and flats that just beg to be explored by such fishermen. The pristine water here is clear, cold and bold, with holes reaching depths of 130 feet. Marchel is eight by two miles and full of fish waiting to bend your pole. You’ll reel in awesome pike and trout worth their weight in bragging rights, and the walleye could be the start of your legend. For the best possible results, June is the ideal time to book a trip at Marchel.
Kakinagmak offers the clear water that dreams are made of. You’ll enjoy the view of fish trailing your line and the thrill of seeing them grab on! You’ll pull in jaw-dropping walleye here, and the trout and pike are notable as well. The best time of year for Kakinagmak is May and June; if trout is your game, you’ll find the sweet spot in September. This beautiful 18 mile lake offers a variety of nooks and crannies to catch your fill.
