Ontario Walleye Fishing
Green Wilderness Lodge is lucky to be on beautiful Lake Mattagami, which is just stuffed with hard fighting and delicious Walleyes. We are one of those lucky lodges that can make the claim of catching Walleye right off the dock.
Lake Mattagami has perfect structure for a high Walleye population with many rocky points, drop-offs, islands and shoals. The river that runs into the lake provides the Walleyes with perfect spawning conditions thus; the Walleye population stays high.
The Walleye in our lake average about 15 inches but large trophy Walleye up to the 15-pound mark have been caught and released. If you love to catch and eat Walleye, then Green Wilderness Lodge is where you want to spend your vacation.
Generally, most of the best Walleye fishing is close to shore. Our guests catch them using jigs or trolling with small Rapalas or Thunder Sticks. Rubber Twistertails are not as effective in our lake as other lakes. Our guest have better luck using a jig with a worm or a minnow, which we have a large supply of at the camp.
