Crayon Lake Fly-in Outpost Camp:

Features: Non stop Walleye action and monster trophy Northern Pike. It's a very easy lake to fish all year. It's called Crayon Lake because there are Blue Walleye that are as blue as a crayon.

Unlike many of the remote outposts in Ontario's North that require visiting anglers to adopt a spartan existence as a trade off for great wilderness fishing, the outpost cabin at Twin Lakes Outfitter's Crayon Lake offers shelter, the basic amenities and real comfort - as well as exceptional walleye and northern pike fishing. The second thing that sets it apart from other remote camps is that it has been set up for small groups of two to six anglers. Ideal for husbands & wives, fathers & sons, or lifelong fishin' buddies, the Crayon Lake cabin is a cut above the provincial standard in terms of design and comfort.

Crayon Lake itself is a small, clear rocky lake with excellent structural features and fantastic walleye fishing throughout the summer. Breaklines, mid-lake structures and rock/rubble spines attract and hold plenty of 2 to 4-pound fish, with the occasional trophy walleye showing up - like an 8-1/2 pounder we caught and released. Trolling along breaklines in 8 to 11 feet of water and/or working a twistertail jig across a tapering point or down a dropoff adjacent to any of the many mid-lake islands and shoals will put anglers in touch with plenty of fish. Crayon Lake is also a great place to fish live baits (worms, leeches) either on slip rigs or beneath floats.

Early in the season, big northerns - fish attaining 44 inches in length (exceeding 20 pounds) - are caught and released at the far end of the lake where a creek spills into a shallow, soft-bottomed bay. During our summer visit, our group caught pike wherever we fished for walleyes, but the structural features of the mid-lake island / shoal area coughed up the biggest fish.

Crayon Lake's small size, ideal structural features and bountiful fishery make it an ideal fly-in site where even inexperienced anglers can quickly catch fish while improving both their location and fishing skills.

This cabin has propane stove and fridge, hot and cold water and a shower in cabin. The cabin is fully equipped for housekeeping including a BBQ, fish fryer and fish cleaning house. It's the only cabin on the lake.
