Gone Fishing

English River, N.W. Ontario Canada

Recommended Posts

Has anyone fished out of the Naughty Pines Fish Camp on the English River system north of Ear Falls, N.W. Ontario Canada? I'm thinking of taking a trip up there with my wife. I'm wondering how good the fishing is? Is it a place my wife will like? And in general what to expect? I've never gone to Canada fishing before.
Any input would be apreciated.

The fishing on the English River is GREAT!!
But a word of advice, Get a guide for at least one day!! and be very careful to check your credit card reciepts at the time you use it!! We had a lot of problems with stores over charging,and if you caught it they would try to refund the over charge in Canadian money!!!! They just made $.50 cents on every dollar they over charged you if you take the Canadian currency.Get American money back or force them to cancel the charge and redo the bill.

Definatly watch out for the rocks!!! Last year I was driving and the water was lower by about 3 feet. A rock came and took my skag right off and bent my prop up too. That was a bad day for me. If your unsure about the bottom, go slower than usual. Keep your depth finder on and pay attention to it. I wouldn't want that to happen to my worst enemy.
Good luck, fishing is really good there. Be safe.

I went to the naughty pines fish camp in the summer of 2000. The water is coffee stained and you can't see more than a foot or two down. The water was extremely high when I was there making for a difficult bite. We still caught quite a few walleyes but they were rather small. Unexpected lake is the one you want to fish hard. I caught a 24 inch walleye on a spinnerbait a foot away from the boat, the biggest one of the week. So if you are going in late July the weeds might be something to think about. There are a tremendous amount of northerns in there, you shouldn't have any trouble catching those if that's your thing. My brother also had a big muskie miss his lure twice while fishing for northerns. Because of the color of the water, midday can sometimes be the hottest bite. Windswept shorelines produced the most fish. The larger northerns we found were pretty deep. Hope you have a good time, when are you going? I'd like to hear how you do. Make sure you have bright colored lures.

Hey nice to see you finally made your way on the forums Troll. Boy that was one heck of a muskie wasn't it. Sure wish she would've hit the lure. Gone Fishin, Troll pretty much covered the fishing part of it. I tell you what, if you are looking for a secluded vacation this wouldn't be a bad choice. There are only two camps I believe on the whole stretch of river you would be fishing, often times while fishing, there won't be a boat in sight. I am sure you and your wife would like the place, when we were there, their were a number of husband-wife couples. The only thing you might want to prepare yourself for is that your gonna be using outhouses for a week shocked.gif Other than that i am sure you would like it, if not here get up to Canada somewhere, not taking anything away from the great fishing we have here in Minnesota, but the secluded wilderness setting up there is one of a kind. Good luck on your decision, if you go let us know how you do. Good fishin, LaVoi

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
