-- a Canadian fly-in fishing trip to Loon Haunt's remote outpost cabins for Walleye and Northern Pike is the trip of a lifetime. Red Lake is a popular fly out center at the end of the highway, 200 miles north of International Falls, Minnesota.
We operate five fly-in outpost camps north of Red Lake Ontario, Canada, and offer the very finest in Walleye and Northern Pike fishing. We fly from Red Lake to our outposts located from as little as 30 miles north to as much as 70 miles north.
The following pages give details on each location as well as pictures of our remote outpost cabins. This site takes a while to load but we believe you will find it worth the wait. We have added links to more information on each location as well as our annual newsletter.

Our Goose Lake camp is 65 miles northeast of Red Lake, Ontario. The only camp on this lake, we have outstanding Walleye and Northern fishing and offer a portage out trip to neighboring Nechigona Lake for our more adventurous guests. Goose Lake is about 7 square miles and offers a real diversity of fishing opportunities: plenty of structure, steep drop-offs, weedy bays, sunken reefs, and gravel beds.

and will look after all your needs. Our

an outstanding view of the lake. The island is
also home to a pair of loons who nest on it
every year as do a pair of mergansers.

six. There is a walk in pantry with ample
shelving for storage and a shower area with

Our cabin is the only one on Unnamed Lake so
you will have complete privacy. The lake is
well sheltered, being almost like a chain of
small lakes about 10 miles long with numerous
bays and narrows where Walleye and Northern
are found. There is a portage out lake for
more Walleye and Northern action. The 14 foot
Lund and Alumarine boats are teamed with 9.9
hp Johnson motors
(one for each boat plus a spare).

people. Whitelaw runs a little deeper than our
other Walleye/Northern lakes. The dark stained
water makes for an incredible Walleye
population and great fishing at any time of
day. A favourite fishing spot is directly in
front of the cabin at the base of a burbling
rapids. Boats are 14 foot Alumarines with 6 hp
Yamaha outboards and a spare. There are no
other camps on the lake and we also have one
portage-out lake to explore. The water at
Whitelaw fluctuates a great deal but this
causes no problem as we have our boat launch
ramp and a floating dock.
Who We Are
owners, Bill and Louise Coppen, of Loon Haunt
Outposts and have been entertaining guests with
warm northern hospitality for more than 40
years. In 2017 we decided to introduce some new
blood and welcomed Ryan Scott onboard. Our
plan is to gradually do less and less while Ryan
does more and more.

fortunate over the years to be able to earn a
living surrounded by people we enjoy. We bring to
our work a wealth of experience and genuine love
for what we do. No problem is too big or too small
for Bill to handle. An accomplished bush pilot
with thousands of hours, he makes flying our bush
plane look easy as he handles the many flights of
the season. Louise is more at home on the ground
and will cheerfully help with locating fish, day
to day camp chores, and even with a fish filleting
lesson! Nothing is more important than the chance
to visit with our guests and share a story or
solve the world's problems.

Our Conservation Policy
Our pristine 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.
you to eat your fill of smaller fish but allow
no take home fish at all.
| How to make reservations
click on the logo below
to hear a loon call
us for available dates. Tentative arrangements
can be made by phone but all firm reservations
require a deposit ($300 US per person) at the
time of reservation. Deposits are transferable
with 60 days notice, but not refundable.
Personal cheques are accepted for deposits only.
The balance must be paid in full with a cashier's
cheque or cash before leaving camp. 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 cabin,
we remove it from the market refusing all other
requests. A booking must be accompanied by a
deposit within 2 weeks -- if not, the cabin is
opened up to other fishermen. Our policy is
intended to be fair to our guests, yet prevent
the loss of income to our business.
Make 2018 the year for experiencing a fly-in fishing trip.
