An amazing wilderness adventure awaits you at

Trapline Lake Outpost

Trapline Lake is one for the record books as it’s known for the large lunker walleyes. The fishery here is outstanding as there is some moving water as this lake is part of a river system. The dark stained water gives the walleyes a really dark back with the gold-stained belly. There are dozens of islands on this lake and also offers a creek that you are able to access on average water level years (on drier years, a portage or walking trail is there for you to use to access the boats in the other lakes). Some of the other walleye lakes here at No Name and Elbow will give you the satisfaction of the best walleye fly in outpost trip! There is also a lake trout lake that is accessible by walking over a stone trail where fishermen can really get hooked up with these beauty lakers!!

After being on the lake all day, what’s better than sitting on the deck looking at the lake reminiscing about the day’s fishing tales. This outpost has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (with flushing toilets!!), and an incredibly spacious living area with a beautiful customized kitchen. Enjoy the silence of the north as this is fully powered by solar and also has a generator for backup. CPAP machines are able to be plugged in at this outpost. This wilderness cabin is truly a wilderness retreat that is perfect for friends, families, couples and anyone who just wants to catch a lot of fish! Come one group, come all and book this outpost for your personal record book memorable trip!

The Cabin

When the time came to build a new cabin here in 2010, we returned to tradition. The hand hewn logs raised by our own skilled crew are truly a part of the north. You will enjoy an incredibly spacious living area, well equipped kitchen and four carpeted bedrooms as well as a solar system that powers the lights and electric fridge. The two bathrooms with showers and flushing toilets are especially nice after spending all day on the lake chasing trophies.
