Camping, Fishing, Touring in Black Bear Island Lake
Karen and I just got back from a fun filled trip to Northern Saskatchewan. We drove to Missinippi north of La Ronge, chartered a turbo otter and flew up the Churchill River to Black Bear Island Lake. We had another couple with us. We found our own "private" island for the week to set up a camp and then we toured, fished and camped. Fly fishing was not a top priority during the week. We did have lots of fun chasing pike and walleye on the fly when we did fish. Big leech and mice patterns were our favourite flies. The whole fly in camping experience is so much fun! Take a look!

The glass lake was a perfect time to stalk pike with a mouse.
We love the camping just as much as the fishing!
