Maintaining Our Fishery

We realize the most important ingredient in satisfying our guests is the quality of our fishing. Province-wide slot sizes were introduced in 2002 to ensure healthy fish populations. Esnagi Lake was way ahead of the rest of Ontario when slot limits were established in 1993. This means more and bigger fish! Our efforts have been rewarded as we can offer some of the finest fly-in or train-in fishing in Canada!

You Can Help

By releasing as many fish as possible and choosing a Conservation License you can conserve fish stocks. If we keep all the fish we catch, quite simply someday there will be no fish for anyone to catch. Should we all treat the high quality of our fishing with respect we will be doing our part to ensure bountiful catches for future generations.

Catch & Release Means Better Fishing!

It’s a known fact, larger fish are our best spawners and pass along the genes for bigger fish. When you catch a trophy we encourage you to release it back into the lake. Should you want a memento for your wall just take a few measurements and a couple of photos. There are excellent taxidermists who can manufacture an exact replica of your catch.
