Nakina Northern Pike Fishing


Lower Twin Lakes Lodge is a drive-to camp and located 6 miles from Nakina, Ontario and on Lower Twin Lake. From their camp you have excellent fishing for Northern Pike in both Upper Twin Lake and Lower Twin Lake as well as fishing in the Drowning River. The lumber boom is over in Nakina and most people have moved away to find work. Combining the absence of fishing pressure from locals with new limits and size restrictions, the fishing in Upper & Lower Twin Lakes has improved immensely over the last 10 years. The high population of Whitefish produces massive Northern Pike and the Twin Lakes are no exception. Northern Pike are common in the 2 to 8-pound range but trophy Pike in the 40 to 50-inch range do get caught and released every year. In actual fact, one of the largest Northern Pike in Canadian history was caught and released in Lower Twin Lake. It was a fat 56-incher and 40 pounds, which is just 2 pounds off the world record Northern Pike. Accommodations are clean and comfortable lakeside housekeeping cottages. A limited-service campground with waterfront sites is also available.


Brace Lake Outfitters: If you enjoy catching some of the biggest Northern Pike there are, then Brace Lake is the spot for you!! Brace is known for its Monster Northern Pike and most go home catching at least one over 40 inches!! These are some of the most challenging fish to catch, as the big ones lay down in the cold dark waters, and only a white jig gets their attention. Rapalas always get them going into a feeding frenzy, and you can catch them all day long on those. If a big Northern Pike screaming line off your reel is what you are looking for, then come out to Brace Lake Outfitters to catch these legendary Gaitors of Northwestern Ontario. You will not be disappointed!!
