Ever dream of finding a secret lake where you can catch 40…60… maybe even a 100 walleye from one spot without moving your boat? That’s what a Canadian fly-in trip to Uchi Lake is all about! Lots of fat walleye… and big northern pike too, up to 25 pounds!
FULL SERVICE FLY-IN FISHING
From the moment you arrive in Sioux Lookout, Judy and one of her staff will be there to greet you at the dock and load your gear on the floatplane. The Uchi flight will be the first one out, usually before 7 a.m., so you wonâ€™t miss any fishing your first day. Once on the plane, enjoy the 40-minute flight in a DHC3T Turbine Otter or 1952 DHC-2 Beaver as miles of unspoiled wilderness pass beneath you.
ROOMY CABINS, GREAT FOOD
When you arrive at Uchi, the staff will meet you at the dock and show you to your private cabin. While you ready your fishing gear, the Uchi crew will be busy preparing a hot breakfast. As you enjoy your meal in the lodge, you can look over photos and topo maps with all the hot spots for walleye and northern clearly marked. Judy will fill out your conservation licenses, which are free.
CLEAN, DEPENDABLE BOATS
In no time, youâ€™ll be headed across the crystal blue surface of Uchi Lake in a shipshape and reliable Lund boat, equipped with swivel seats with back rests, and a brand new Mercury motor. Rest assured that all the gear is meticulously maintained, so all your time on the lake is spent fishing.
Uchi Lake is 12 miles long and you probably wonâ€™t see another boat all day because Uchi is the only lodge on the lake and there is no other access. So if you do come across another fisherman, it will be someone who sat across from you in the breakfast room. Itâ€™s like fishing your own secret spot.
SHORE LUNCH EVERYDAY!
After your first full morning of catching and releasing fish, youâ€™ll want to make sure you have a rope stringer along so you can bring in a couple of fish for shore lunch. The meal is prepared on a beautiful rocky point a few miles across the lake from the lodge. Uchi staff do all the fish cleaning, cooking, and preparation, as well as providing fresh baked cookies and cakes for dessert.
And shore lunch isnâ€™t just the first dayâ€¦itâ€™s every day of your stay at Uchi! All you have to do is show up around noon, get your favorite cold beverage from your cooler, and have a seat at the picnic tables under the vast blue sky. After enjoying the sweet, crispy golden walleye fillets, youâ€™ll leave cleanup to the staff. You have bigger things to think about than dirty dishesâ€¦like huge walleye and pike!
