Walleye

Regardless of where you fish on Esnagi Lake, you can be certain that walleye will be biting nearby. Esnagi has hundreds of spots to fish walleyes - shoals, dropoffs, points, weedbeds, weedlines, and island saddles.

Northern Pike

Big waters produce big fish, and combined with expansive weedbeds, deep main-lake basins, a large forage base, and widely practised catch & release, an excellent pike fishery has flourished at Esnagi Lake.

Perch & Whitefish

Perch are typically caught sitting in the middle of a weed bed in about 5 or 6 feet of water. This panfish is usually found near weed beds or any structure where they can hide from northern pike.

Brook & Lake Trout

Behind Mar Mac Lodge, Brook Trout and Lake Trout are caught in Rock Lake. Access this trophy lake by a 2 minute boat ride and a short 15 minute portage.This "Trophy Lake " requires that no live bait be used.

Fly Fishing

Our pristine wilderness location offers fly fishermen outstanding opportunities for brook and lake trout, northern pike, walleye and whitefish. You'll have lots of elbow room and an excellent chance at a trophy fish!

Conservation

The most important ingredient in satisfying our guests is the quality of our fishery. Esnagi boasts a healthy fish population for many reasons including limited numbers of anglers, educated anglers and early adoption of a slot size program.
