January Fun

January was a great month as we started getting some snow fall which made it fun for snowmobile riding. The snow didn’t stop—we had so much snow this month it was some of the best snow conditions in years—it was cold for sure but as long as you dress warm, the snowmobiling was incredible. We went out for the weekend and made a fire for warmth and lunch—it was a blast having friends and family gathering outside!!

We snowmobiled to Rex for another escape to the outdoors and get another ride in. We were driving through some parts of the burn from this past summer and WOW that fire burnt a lot of bush! We saw some partridge, otters playing by the creeks and lots of eagles it was a gorgeous ride!!

Great day for a fire!
What a beautiful blue sky!

We bought another plane! We purchased a 185 Cessna to be able to fly into our outposts and lodges. It’s a great plane that we purchased from a Kenora local. It flies great and Chris is getting antsy for spring to try it on floats for the summer!!


The month of December is spent differently for most-for some it is a time for hunting, the start of ice fishing, prepping and shopping for the holiday season and making plans for the next year’s fishing adventures. Spending time with friends and loved ones is an awesome way to come together and for some its not just at Christmas. We are a destination for not only fishing but as a meeting place friends and family during the summer fishing season.

Here is a quick video of driving through the yard in our winter wonderland at One Man Lake! This video was from early December when the English River was still open. The frigid cool temperatures in mid-December really set in and the river froze over by Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of our previous, current and future fishermen and hunters! We hope that your Christmas was full love and that our fishermen received lots of fishing tackle and gear from Santa!

Happy New Years to everyone and wishing a safe and memorable start of 2022!! Our New Year’s resolution is to be able to be able to welcome our American guests in 2022! Let’s go fishing!!

Brrr-keep that wood stove going!!

With the temperatures falling and the wind blowing this fall, we took on a project that had to be completed. New ceilings were installed at One Man and it looks great! The crew did an amazing job!!

October 2021

What a month for the northern lights-they were absolutely beautiful! The northern lights had lit up the skies many a nights in October!

Halley’s Camps TROPHY FISH LIST is posted on our website! Click here

At One Man this month we had 2 fishermen at the beginning of the month and wow!! Did they every catch the fish! Trophy northern and bass!! Shawn and Eric really tested many areas of the fishing from near to far and they did absolutely amazing! 

Make sure you check out our trophy list—we had some great fishing in 2021 in a short season.

Largest walleye: 30”

Largest smallie: 21.5”

Largest pike: 42”

Our Thanksgiving was October 11th and we had so much to be thankful for this year. With 2 forest fires-one of which was at Moosehorn and burned towards Kettle this spring and the other one this summer that started north and moved its way to the English River, we are able to say that all our buildings and docks remain intact! So thankful and grateful to the MNRF that worked hard endlessly which seemed like all summer fighting the fires in our area. Chris had flown around and checked on all our locations and we did loose some boats and motors on our musky lake at Irregular otherwise that was about it.

We are grateful that Canada opened its borders and we were able to see everyone that made it up! Everyone was double vaccinated, covid tested negative and travelled to us to go fishing. Thank you all for taking the extra steps to come on your fishing vacation with us at Halley’s Camps!

Burned boats!

NEW for 2022! We are flying from KENORA!!

We are having all of our outpost guests and our all-inclusive guests fly out of Kenora, Ontario and not Minaki. This is will be easier for all of you for less driving, timelines, hotels, meals, shopping and more! We will have a new office downtown Kenora as well! We will be continuing to offer flights from Winnipeg and Fort Frances direct into our lodges and outposts. Kenora is located 2.5 hours drive north of International Falls, MN.

September 2021

September was a great month to come fishing. When we look at the number of trophies registered between the two places Kettle Falls and Caribou Falls Landing we had 70 trophy fish registered!! Whether it be walleyes, bass or pike—when fishermen would put their lines in the water wham-o-fish-on!! And we have pictures to prove it!!

Kettle Falls Lodge

We had lots of return fishermen to Halley’s but some of them were new-be’s at Kettle Falls this year as they have stayed at One Man, Caribou or one of the outposts in the past. First timers ever to Halley’s Camps, Nicholas and Chris, were looking forward to this surprise trip that was given to them by their ladies for Christmas! They caught a lot of fish and Nicholas caught the largest walleye of the year which was a 30” walleye!! Steve returned for a 5 day trip with his son Matt and they caught piles of fish and registered many trophies with the largest bass being 20.5”-whew that is a lot of bass!! 

The last group of the year was Bill Jr and Bill Sr for a 90th birthday fishing trip for Bill Sr. They caught lots of fish and had a very memorable few days fishing with us.  Bill caught a 21.5” smallie!! 

After all the guests left Kettle for the season there was still some wrapping up to do before winter-the dock, boats and equipment were all stored for the cool Ontario winter ahead.

Fishing bass for his 90th birthday!!

Caribou Falls Landing

Guests at the Landing had good fishing. We had some guests that were supposed to be at the outposts but with the fires they wanted to come fish at Caribou. Spring fishermen, like the Phillips party, came as well and Jimmy caught a trophy bass that was 18” and a 41” pike! We had the Kentucky boys that said this was by far the best fishing they have ever had in 25+ years! A new party from Chicago area found their way with casting and trolling and got piles of walleye, bass and pike and a few trophies to record! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves-fishing and hanging out with family and friends-so good to see!!

Chris and Bob did some work on the yard and road at Caribou this month. They widened the driveway and added a new retaining wall down by the lodge.

Moose Hunt

As the fires burnt a lot of area this summer, we decided that it was best to give the animals and area a break. We didn’t do a moose hunt at Trapline or Rex but Chris decided to do a hunt at one of our moose hunt camps. This lake is very far north and he brought his eldest son, Louis, with him to guide the 3 moose hunters. Two moose hunters were successful and the third moose hunter definitely saw some animals.  They all had a memorable week!


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.

A remarkable family business success story… Halley’s accommodations are second to none, very modern, and well-maintained, and employees that are always helpful. The fishing is excellent. My sons, daughters and grandchildren all treasure the Halley’s experience and can’t wait to go back.
