Lake Nipigon, traditionally a Mecca for speckled trout fishermen, still holds the record for the world's largest "brookie" which weighed over 14 pounds.  Speckled trout fishing is at its best in the spring right after the ice goes out, and again in the late summer or early fall, when the trophy spawners return to shallow water.  These beautiful fish exhibit their most vivid colouration during the fall spawning season.  Lake Nipigon is famous for its trophy brook trout fishery--the reason is obvious when our customers take trophies ranging in size from 3 lbs. up to 6 lbs.  Because of the size of the lake and habitat variance (from rocky shoals to shallow river mouths), Lake Nipigonsupports a variety of species other than brook trout, including large northern pike, walleye and lake trout.



Monster northern pike inhabit shallow bays and river mouths.  Each year, 20 to 25 pound trophies are taken.  In the early spring clients have the opportunity to catch these large predators with fly rods.  These northern "gators" present a real challenge for the avid fly fisherman.  Besides spring fishing, the warm days of summer are an excellent time to angle these large "water wolves" using regular rods and lures. 



Lake trout, the king of cold, clear northern lakes presents an exciting angling opportunity.  It has been said that the trout in Lake Nipigon are the fastest growing strain in Ontario.  During the spring turnover of the water, the lakers move into shallow areas, and can be caught flat lining on light tackle.  As summer approaches, these fish return to deeper and colder waters.  Downriggers installed on our cruiser in conjunction with our LCD fish tracker allows us to continue fishing lake trout throughout the summer.  A 62 pound lake trout was the largest fish known to be taken from Lake Nipigon waters.


Walleye are angled throughout the year, and are plentiful in several areas of the lake.  Sizes range from 2 to 4 pounds.  
For inshore fishing, our 16 foot Lunds are equipped with comfortable seats and are powered by quiet, 9.9 Honda outboards.  The motors are maintained regularly and are in good working order. 


Nighthawk Charters offers our clientele fall moose hunting opportunities. The charter vessel Nighthawk is our portable marine hunting camp while out on Lake Nipigon.  We anchor the mothership and use our runabouts to get to the moose hunting grounds.  Each day we return to a home cooked meal and hot shower aboard the Nighthawk.  Due to the lack of road access to many areas of Lake Nipigon we can provide a secluded hunt in good moose range.  Typically we hunt prime moose habitats; river and stream watersheds and areas of the boreal forest that are in forest reclamation due to naturally occurring wildfires.  These ecosystems include sufficient cover and nutritious young vegetation necessary for the monarch of the boreal regime.  Our moose hunting operations are based in MWU (moose management unit) 15B, which has one of the highest moose densities in the province of Ontario.  Being a recognized tourist outfitter, we can offer our clients two bull gun tags or four bull archery tags. We advise resident customers to apply for an adult tag in 15B for the moose tag draw system. Non-resident hunters must use tags that are provided by the outfitter. Since Party hunting is allowed in Ontario, more than one hunter can hunt on one adult validation tag.



Due to the dense foliage cover of the boreal forest we use tree stands and calling to bring moose within range for hunters.  Our experienced moose hunting guide, Paul Bolduc is an accomplished moose caller.  Each day Paul takes our hunters to the strategically located stands, and then using a series of moose calls he attempts to lure a trophy bull moose within range. Success in the field is based upon a certain amount of stealth and patience by the hunter as you invade the quiet and wary world of the bull moose. We take great pride in looking after your harvested moose. We field dress harvested moose and have the necessary equipment to transport your moose from the kill site back to the Nighthawk, where we can suspend the moose to aid the cooling process to protect the meat. Butchering, processing and freezing of your game can be arranged on the mainland upon return to our base.   You may e-mail us at, or call us, 1(807)885-3171 for moose hunting rates and available dates.
