in Ontario Canada where you can catch plenty
of Walleye and Northern Pike?

offer so as not to waste your time. We
offer fly in trips only, primarily on the Berens
River and its tributary the Throat River and its
tributaries. We do not fly into Woodland
Caribou park or Atikaki park (we believe we have
a better location to offer). We do not offer any
services to people who want to drive in.
We meet you at our Stormer lake base 45
miles north of Red Lake Ontario (you drive to
Stormer lake), then we fly you in about 50
From our base
we fly you into a lake where we supply:
- route maps

of fish will we catch and how good is
catch hundreds of Walleye and Northern
Pike. Yes, you will see some
really big ones. Remember to
handle them gently and return them to
the water very quickly, we want them to
grow and lay more eggs. A simple
rule of thumb. The big ones are
bring our own canoes?
We have found that if you bring your
own canoe the trip will be more
expensive. Transporting your own
canoe entails an extra trip for the
aircraft or using a much larger
aircraft and hence additional cost to
you. Check out our
competition, we believe we have put
together a package that will give you
maximum value for your vacation
Can we take
fish home with us?
Sorry, we have to give you a
straight NO on this one.
If taking fish home is important to
you, do not despair, there are plenty
of operators out there who offer such
a package, we simply do not.
How far do
That's an easy one. It is
simply up to you. We can set up
trips where you paddle a lot or we can
pick you up at the same place we

completed our fourth annual fly-in canoe
trip, I think this trip was the best one
yet! Year after year, several months
before our trip, we all begin counting
the days. It's terrific how every year
seems to exceed our expectations.
we sure appreciate your professionalism
and attention to detail. I've heard
stories from friends about fishing
guides who are disorganized and
unreliable. With you, we can say just
the opposite. You are very deliberate
about the way you run your business. We
particularly appreciate your attention
to detail and the fact that you never
for ensuring a terrific week, year after
year. See you next summer.
How To Reach Us
By car. leave the United States at
International Falls, Minnesota. Take highway 11
east 20 miles to highway 502. Turn north to
Dryden 90 miles, then highway 17 west 25 miles
to Vermilion Bay. Next take highway 105 north
110 miles to Red Lake. 2 miles south of
Red Lake take highway 125, just in front
of the Shell Oil dealership. Follow the
highway toward Cochenour. After passing
the 2 turnoffs to Balmertown, watch for the
Nungesser road. (there is a big blue truck
garage right beside the road) Turn right
onto the Nungesser road and travel for 45
miles. Watch on the left for a sign that
reads STORMER LAKE CHRISTIAN
FELLOWSHIP CENTER. Turn left onto this
road and travel half a mile to a small road off
to the right (the only one) Turn right
onto this road and drive on down to the
lake. You are now at our landing and I
will be there shortly to pick you up. If
you miss the turnoff from the Nungesser road,
you will end up passing a lake on your left and
you will see a sign for STORMER WILDERNESS
CAMP. You have gone too far, turn around
and go back half a mile. (see map)
lakes have very limited fishing pressure and
it is our wish to preserve the fantastic
quality of this precious resource. To this end
we have adopted the following fishing
restrictions: no one is to harm in any way a
Walleye over 18 inches or a Northern over 27
inches. These fish represent our breeding
stock and must immediately be returned to the
water after catching. Grab ONE quick photo,
but do not put the fish on a stringer or delay
its return to the water. We encourage fishing
barbless as it reduces the mortality rate when
catching and releasing fish. It's possible to
catch and release hundreds of fish per day.
We invite you to eat your fill of smaller fish
but allow no take home fish at all.
How to make
us for available dates. Tentative
arrangements can be made by phone but all
firm reservations require a deposit ( $200
US per person) at the time of reservation.
Deposits are transferable on 60 day
notice, but not refundable. Personal
cheques are accepted for deposits only.
The balance must be paid in full with
traveler's cheques or cash at the end of
the trip. Our location is such that we do
not have a large volume of traffic past
our facilities. We must depend on advance
reservations. Once we reserve a trip, we
remove it from the market refusing all
other requests. A booking must be
accompanied by a deposit within 2 weeks-
if not, the trip is opened up to other
canoers. Our policy is intended to be fair
to our guests, yet prevent the loss of
income to our business.
