Fly-in Sturgeon Fishing North of Nakina:
White Sturgeon, also called the Lake Sturgeon, are common in the rivers and lakes north of Nakina and can reach 150 pounds. They have been fished to extinction in central and southern Ontario. Due to changes in the Endangered Species Act, they have put new restrictions on Sturgeon fishing. There is no open season for Sturgeon. As a result; we cannot offer Sturgeon fishing at this time.
Guests may hook into a Sturgeon by mistake from time-to-time. If you do, the fish needs to be released right away. Do not attempt to bring the fish back to your cabin to take a picture. Sturgeon are officially listed as an endangered species and you do not want to be caught by the MNR with one in your possession.
We will post any changes to the laws.
