We have just booked a fly in with showalters to severn lake.(river)
Does anybody have any information, suggestions, or comments to share about severn or showalters?

I've been going with Showalters since '91. Our group (from N Central Illiois) has been using them since the early 80's. I am quite satisfied with Showalter's. They put a lot back into their outposts. I haven't fished Severn but understand that it is a very good walleye lake; I'm not sure how good the pike fishing is. It is about their furthest most northern outpost. I think that the flight up their is about 1.5 hours.
If you are interested, send me your email address and I'll see if I can contact one of the Severn guys from Minooka/Joliet area. I haven't seen them since I retired but will hunt them up. They've fished Severn a number of times.
Can you guess which Showalter outpost I go to.
Thanks a ton hammerhead. my email is:

I have been using Showalters since the early 90's and am very pleased with the service and fishing. I have also been to Severn a couple of times. If you want more info on where we have caught lots of 'eyes and good size northern, you can email to me at
ewallem @mchsi.com and I will be glad to give you some insights on what we have found up there.
What time of year are you going, it could make a difference. We go in early spring, usually late May or early June.

Showalter's is a top notch outfitter. I have fished Action Lake in early June and Cochrane Lake (River)in late June. Both trips were outstanding. The facilities and fishing were great.
