Pickle Lake and area

Recommended Posts

Hey friends.


I just created this account in hopes that someone can point me in the right direction up here in the far north. I moved to Pickle Lake a week ago (from Alberta) and i need advice as to where to fish. I know there's lots of great lakes up here but i have no idea where to start. I don't have a boat (yet) but i can use a canoe. The locals are friendly but hesitant to give up any of their spots. I've tried Pickle Lake itself with very limited success, and I'm wondering if it holds enough walleye to put an ice shack on it this winter. Ive tried a few other spots like Lake St Joe at the Old Post boat launch, Whiz Lake (for brookies), parts of the Otoskwin River etc.


If anyone has been up this way, any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.image0.jpeg.8421d4274e813b584d07aa73a8595512.jpeg

St Joe's would be hard to beat, never fished the otoskwin river but always wanted too. The menako chain of lakes are good, Pipestone river west to horseshoe and winidgo are good as well. 

Thanks, ill try to check them all out. I keep hearing about St Joe being top-notch. We're going out with a guide next week so i guess ill find out what its all about.
