The Esnagami River, which forms part of the Albany River watershed, is noted for its Trophy Brook Trout and excellent Walleye fishing, as well as good Northern Pike fishing. To better take advantage of this superb fishery, we are excited to offer our guests the opportunity to stay at our new Esnagami River Outpost/River Camp, located on this scenic river approximately 25 miles from the lodge.
When studying a river from a Brook Trout fisherman's perspective, I suspect most of us tend to think in terms of rapids, riffles runs, pools, shallows, bends, water levels, obstructions and current breaks.
But what of spring holes?
While the sport of fly fishing has become somewhat demystified over the years, many continue to see it as a way to catch fish, that is best left to those who have an unhealthy fascination with insects and bugs, and likely live in their parents basement.

There is something very special about rivers.
They come in all shapes and sizes, and while we have managed to mess up quite a few of them, there are still an impressive number that, having been left to their own devices, continue to provide us with the opportunity to play at beingLesVoyageur as we travel along them to this day.
Regardless of whether you are a dedicated fly fisher, or only occasionally pick up a fly rod, Esnagami Wilderness Lodge will provide a fly-fishing experience specifically designed to suite your personal preferences and skill level.
Framed within a pristine wilderness setting, we offer river, and natural spring fed pond fishing for trophy size Brook Trout, as well as lake fishing for monster Northern Pike.
Novice or expert, our experienced staff will provide you with the techniques and tactics to ensure a successful fly fishing experience that is second to none.
There may be no more thrilling, or productive way to catch Northern Pike than on a fly.
Esnagami Lake provides some of the best trophy Northern Pike fishing that you will experience anywhere – and to say that they love to attack a fly is perhaps one of the greatest angling understatements of all time.
Walleye are abundant both in Esnagami Lake, and throughout the Esnagami River system.
They will readily take a fly, and provide some great action, particularly when caught in fast moving water. Walleye up to 24" have been taken on a fly by our guests.
