January—leaving an advertising trail in the U.S.

January historically has always been our sportshow month. Over decades we had been to over 15 states and this year we were in 4 making our way across the midwest. Chris, Amber, Jonny and Lisa went out on the road, sometimes in different directions, depending on the shows that were happening-sometimes 2 at once! We had a lot of great conversations with new clients and had wonderful visits with our previous/existing customers. 

We are having a fall special at our all-inclusive fishing lodges (15% off our fishing packages). We invite our customers new and old to come and fish on our fall special. The fishing is amazing in September and the weather last September was beautiful. Please see more information below.

November-our thankful month!

Thank you to all of our fishing phanatics that make Halley’s Camps their fishing destinations. We love greeting our customers and meeting our new ones as well. Lots of our guests look forward to their annual fishing trip throughout the year and are truly thankful they have fishing in their blood! We do our best to give everyone a fabulous fishing vacation and again Chris and Amber say a huge thank you!

Thank you to all of our staff that work diligently day after day making Halley’s Camps their summer homes. We appreciate all the work and even though we don’t have a picture of everyone, here are a few of our Halley’s staff!

October-it’s huntin’ time!

We had a group of archery moose hunters early in October that were successful and had a blast! Mike and the crew make Halley’s Camps their annual moose hunt destination and know the area very well. They even ventured off for the day and Chris took them musky fishing!

We had a couple of different hunts going on at the same time. We had hunts at some of our remote cabins/outposts where there are no roads around where there is perfect moose habitat.

Dean shot his moose on opening day! That was quick! His guide Tim was not only his hunting partner but his fishing partner. Dean and Tim enjoyed the great walleye fishing that was close to camp!

And that is a wrap for the year! Our last guests of the year left on October 16! 

September-the colorful month.

WOW-the colors started changing into the bright yellows and oranges early this year. The changing colors of the leaves were absolutely gorgeous. Our guests also enjoyed looking at the northern lights. At Caribou, the northern lights were shining a week straight that would come out at around 9:30pm and last for hours. Guests would take pictures of the northern lights but it’s just breathtaking watching the yellows and greens dancing across the northern skies.

Kelly and Kerry decided to book a quick couple’s trip and enjoyed their fishing trip. They had bonfires at night and even though they are used to fishing in July they had great fishing reports!

Chris and Amber flew to one of our trout lakes for the day with Amber’s parents and HOLY the trout were biting!! It was a super fun afternoon and got to put a few trout in the smoker as well! For those looking to trout fish specifically, aim your trip for September!

Reagan got to go fishing with Gene up on a secret fish spot #72 and they were catching the walleyes in the current off the rocks!

Sometimes it’s fishing in the morning and watching the football games in the afternoon on Sundays! Here is part of the crew watching the game with appetizers and all!

Again, we do our best to accommodate fishermen as we have some pretty amazing fishing. We were the answer to some fishermen that were fishing elsewhere and they called from on the lake to see if we had availability the next day as our fishing is incomparable. This group caught so many fish this year and they are booked in again to come with Halley’s Camps in 2024! Call us for last minute trips-we will do our best to get you fishing! 

Kettle Falls

Why are goodbyes always so hard! September was a shorter month at Kettle Falls with the last bell for breakfast being rung at 7am on September 10th! September did not stop the Trophy awards with 17 handed out in that short of time! Wow congratulations fishermen & fisherwoman! 

Tom and David were the last guests at Kettle Falls. David caught 3 Trophy Walleye and a 19-inch Trophy Bass and Tom was able to land a Trophy Bass and a 29 ½ inch walleye! Great job guys! 

Al, a very seasoned Halley’s Camps fisherman, brought his fishing gang with him again at our Kettle Falls Lodge. They had amazing weather to start-look at their pictures-they are wearing shorts in September-beautiful blue skies-how can you beat that when the fish are biting?!? They fished, they laughed, ate fish, and cliff jumped!  Ben caught some nice fish while he was here-he registered a trophy smallmouth bass and a northern pike!

Time to go! Along with the last guest leaving the Staff at Kettle Falls all pitched in to get camp closed up, goodbyes until next season were exchanged. Check out the picture of them leaving on this beautiful fall morning. 

Thank you to all who came and visited Kettle Falls this summer! Chris, Amber and Lisa look forward to seeing you all again next summer!

One Man Lake Lodge

We have had many groups over the years and as the years go on, we all age. It was a sad moment when a fisherman realizes the time when they cannot go fishing anymore. Bill would come with his sons and friends (2 of them came in June) to come fishing at One Man and he loved his annual trips. This year, his son Chris came for the first time without his dad. He did carry on the fishing tradition that was instilled upon him by his dad and he brought his wife. They had some fantastic fishing and looks like we will be seeing them again for future trips!

Outposts-fin and fur month!

Our September consists of hunting and fishing. This year our fishing group from Minnesota caught some beautiful walleyes at Trapline. Kevin landed a 29.5” walleye and David had a 27.5” walleye. Fishing was on their radar and had an amazing trip. Jim and Leiza came up on their 2nd trip in 2023 to Rex Lake. They love the fishing, the views, the exploring, the hiking, and the time spent at Rex! They look forward to every trip and are truly good-hearted people and Chris and Amber had the pleasure of visiting with them at Rex Lake.

Our moose hunting groups in September are way up north and depart from our Caribou Falls Landing. The group this year was a mix of family and friends. They had some action around them and while they were in camp, the bull moose was right across the bay from them! Check out their pictures-a trip to remember!!

August 2023-reelin’ good times!

Kettle Falls

Trophies, Trophies, Trophies! August came in with warm weather and plenty of fish for everyone to catch! First time at Halley’s, father & son duo, Doug and Matt, each caught some great fish and brought home many new memories!

Ron and his son found the hot spots for bass! Ron caught a 21.5” smallmouth bass and between him and Chris, they caught 7 trophies! Chris caught a pike that was 42.5”-what a river monster!!

Another couple big fish to write home about is Cecil’s 30” walleye and the gigantour of the year, Doc’s 32” walleye! Those are some WHOPPER fish!

Joe and his son Brian back at Kettle Falls mid- August. This year they included Samantha. Samantha was able to come on her first Halley’s Fishing Trip adventure making it a 3-generation family trip. Samantha earned her first trophy hat by registering her 18″ smallmouth bass and 28.5″ walleye. Joe had the biggest catch with his 42″ northern pike! Let’s not forget about Brian with his Trophy Walleye at 27”, although Brian never caught the biggest he was able to catch memories that will have them telling fishing stories for years to come!

 Ever wonder how we get minnows when the planes aren’t delivering minnows? We use 2 boats with a huge net between and slowly pull the net in. We cannot do this in the daytime unless we are more in the current so we usually do this in the evening.

Caribou Falls Landing

Guests at the Landing this month couldn’t believe the fishing. We had the pleasure of hosting a couple of parties that this was their 2nd trip of the year! John and the Marty boys-so much fun seeing them again!  Ken and Lois brought their family again and they hooked lots of fish including two 27” walleyes-what a fun day fishing! The big northern still bite in August and fattening up for the winter. Irvin caught this 39” northern while a couple of lengthy ones were Owen’s 42” and Scott’s 43”-those are some strong feisty fish! Dennis hooked into some large smallmouth bass! Check out his pictures!! We LOVE seeing fish pictures-keep sending them our way!!

One Man Lake

What a beautiful month of weather at One Man! We had Brian and his family join us again at One Man. They were able to go out and find lots of fish and hangout as a family away from the hustle and bustle. The family had fun and it sounds like they had a wonderful trip all together.

Mike brought up his close friends to fish One Man for a few days. They fished the river around One Man and they caught piles of fish! Their fishing crew wanted to try a fly out for musky fishing. The fishing was insane!!! Look at their picture as the pictures tell their fishing tales of the day!

Wayne brought up his grandson to be able to fish One Man before the school year started. They had wonderful weather, tasty shore lunches, and truly embraced the time that they had in the boat together. We find here at Halley’s Camps that with many people and hearing everyone’s fishing stories whether its family, friends or business, after a few days in a boat together you can really catch up and get to know someone better than before your trip. Basically, no cell service, wi-fi and creating that conversation and forming memories that last forever.

Outposts-Fishin’, relaxin’, enjoyin’ this month at the outposts!

We had lots of fishermen reporting back that the fishing was fantastic.

Rex Lake had one of the BIGGEST bass of the year! 22.5”!! That was a football-congrats to Kurt! Long time guest, John, comes fishing at Moosehorn Lake and comes 2 times a year! John knows all the hotspots on Moosehorn!

Moosehorn got a new roof this month. We flew all the supplies and equipment in by float plane and Louis and Sam got the job done!


Start Your Perfect Getaway

Ready to experience some of the best walleye, northern and smallmouth fishing in Canada? Whether you desire all the comfort and luxury of a lodge or the escape and adventure of an outpost experience, Halley’s Camps offers something unique for everyone.

Thank you for putting together another great event. The lodge staff, facility and boats were outstanding. Always enjoy spending time with good people that enjoy a little fun competition, too. Looking forward to another great trip next year. Thank you all again for making the trip so enjoyable.
