If secluded, quiet, scenic and peaceful are all descriptions you are searching for to plan a fishing trip, family vacation or just a getaway,
in a wilderness setting – we suggest you contact us because fishing
on Kenogaming Lake is exactly all that!
You’re going to love our location and remote fishing !

Kenogaming Lake is 14 kms (9 miles) long, with a very healthy population of Walleye and Northern Pike. Other smaller remote lakes can be accessed by ATV from the Lodge which hold an abundance of Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout along with Walleye, Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass.

With many weedy bays, rocky shores, points and underwater structures everywhere… your choice of fishing techniques will find active fish in those key areas. Trolling deeper flats in the summer for large Northern Pike or jigging structure for Walleye are the tricks to catching numbers daily.

Kenogaming Lake is naturally replenished with both fresh water and nutrients from the Northern Watershed’s rivers and streams coming in from the south. With this rich abundance of healthy bait fish, crayfish, minnows, leaches, and many other fish forage, our fishery is very healthy and naturally reproduces. Back lakes can also be accessed by our Side by Sides. These lakes hold Walleye, Pike and Brook Trout.

With a trustworthy fleet of 14’ Naden aluminum boats & 9.9 Yamaha four stroke outboards, along with advice from owners that know where to go & what to use – that’s all you’ll need to have an exciting day of fishing and exploring.

Words can’t express how much we appreciated and enjoyed our time at Thunderstock Outfitters. From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcomed! The amenities were fantastic, the fishing was great and the company from Kim and Gary was the icing on the cake!  Thank you Kim and Gary for treating us like family and making our 10 year anniversary trip so memorable!
Much Love: Chad & Mandy,  Indiana, USA
Gary and Kim operate a lodge the way a lodge should be run professionally and personally. Mr. Gary is the consummate professional and Miss Kim adds the personal touch. For this special couple, their lodge is a labor of love and it shows in the genuine hospitality you receive upon your arrival until your departure.
That is what calls us back each year for more!

Tackle Advice

Rod, Reel, and Line Suggestion

  • One 6′ medium light action jigging rod for Walleye
  • One 6.5′ medium to heavy action cast/trolling rod for Northern Pike
  • 6 – 8lb. good quality mono is suggested for casting and jigging for Walleye
  • 10 – 14lb. braided is recommended for all styles of Pike fishing

Lure Suggestions

Early season and late season, fish are very actively feeding so selecting your fishing tackle, lures and colour are not as important as in the summer season when fish go deeper to cooler water and less bright sun. So during those dog days of summer, jigging with live bait (night crawlers sold on site) and Gulp Alive are very effective…and always remember patience is your best bait!

Colour Suggestions

Fishing Northern Ontario’s “tea stained” waters, orange and brass are always a consistent fish catching combination. Minnow type baits such as Rapala’s J7 in gold & orange, silver & black, perch and fire tiger are the natural colours of the forage in the area.

Jigs in florescent colours like pink, orange, chartreuse and white work well with 4” twister tails in white, orange, chartreuse glitter, pink, and pearl white.

Bait Types Per Fish


  • Minnow type baits for casting and trolling (Rapala Xrap/Husky Jerks)
  • Assortment of both lead and floating jigs with Twister Tails
  • Worm harnesses/“Go Getter” type harness
  • Bottom bouncer style rigs for deep trolling recommended in summer
  • Drop shot with live bait on structure edges

Northern Pike

  • Large topwater poppers / prop baits / jitterbugs, for early season spring Pike
  • Large (6” – 8”) minnow type baits for trolling and casting
  • Good selection of 3” – 4” spoons
  • #3 or #4 Mepps style inline spinners
  • Bottom bouncer style rigs for deep trolling recommended in summer

Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits will work in early spring when Pike are very active BUT we suggest you don’t waste your valuable time on the lake throwing “bass lures”.

Brook Trout

  • #2 Mepps style spinners/Rooster Tail spinners, etc.
  • Small jigs and 2″ Twister Tails
  • Best results: hook, worm or Gulp minnow & bobber!

Fishing Technique Suggestions Per Fish Type

We find that very slow vertical jigging on drop off structure and trolling deep with bottom bouncers work best.

Northern Pike
Casting with quick retrieve on drop offs/deep weed edges or by trolling deep structure with bottom bouncers work well.

Brook Trout
You will find success by casting with a slow retrieve or by jigging live bait on a drop shot rig.
