We actually stayed on Felsia Lake in 2007 thru Leuenbergers but fished most of the time on Hurst Lake. It's a huge body of water with all the structure you could ever want to fish. They have the two camps on the lake and not sure how busy the camps are or if they just use one of them now a days. We spend a lot of time fishing at the in flowing river and anytime of the day it was none stop walleye action with the average size being 2.5-3 lbs easily.

I'm not sure who owns it or what it is but there is a camp set up on the right side of the in coming flow that looks like either a native camp, a trappers set up or possible a moose camp someone has set up there not sure if legal or not but its there. There are no boats there so i'm not sure why its there.

If you have a chance I don't think you will be disappointed in the lake, its one I would consider going to if the chance every comes around in the future.

I made reference to it in this report http://www.canadafishingguide.net/fo...sia-lake-2007/

Good Luck with your choice

Thanks all for the great feedback
Sounds like Hurst could be a winner as well - Smokey thanks for taking the time to post

Adam - I hear you re Pringle size but I do think our group is intrigued by the "fishiness"

On our last trip I think we figured out that quantity and "easy" numbers is big for us

Meeting next week with our group to finalize so the feedback is awesome

Will definitely post our choice when finalized

Default Hurst Lake

Hurst Lake has fantastic walleye fishing where the Attwood River comes into the lake. I fished Hurst while using Leuenberger's Felsia Lake cabin. Water levels were very low in June when I was there a few years back, and we actually had to leave a boat at Hurst and walk from Felsia boat to Hurst boat in the shallows. Water was shallow at incoming flow from Attwood Lake, and area where it came in from was filled with water grass, which was a source of many minnows and insects/nymphs. Walleyes were stacked and you could literally see them like trout in a stream. Even on bright sunny days the walleyes were there in the shallows from 1 feet to 12 feet deep. Nice sized fish as well, averaging 2 to 2 and half pounds. Bottom line is you could catch walleyes there at will all day long.
There is also a nice sandy beach area nearby for shore lunch.
Tried some other spots on the lake with limited success, always ended up at the hotspot.

Fishing with MLO is an outstanding vacation, you will not be disappointed. Although I have not fished on Hurst, I have been fishing on Attwood for several years (even before Don purchased the lake). Hurst connects with Attwood so the fishing would be very similar with Attwood being the larger lake. The fishing is excellent. The camps are not fancy but in very good condition & the boats & motors run very well. Don will do everything he can to fly you in & out on time, weather permitting. Last year we wanted to try something different so we went to Pringle. It's a much smaller lake with a lot of weed beds (even in the middle of the lake). We had bad weather but the fishing was good. Don told us since we had fished Attwood for so long, we would probably want to go back there. He was right, we simply like the style of fishing & the larger lake better. Pringle is a great walleye lake, just different from what we were used to. MLO also charges in Canadian dollars & the exchange rate is very good now. I hope you find what you are looking for.

Thanks so much
Interested in the type of fishing on Pringle - re lots of weeds
Most of our experience has been fishing more traditional rocky shield structure on our trips - lots of jigging, lots of bouncing with harnesses
On Pringle with the weeds interested in how others fished the lake - jigging in the weeds? Slip bobbers? trolling around the edges?
Thanks so much
Gordy

Default Pringle lake

Pringle is a pretty easy lake to fish. We were there at the end of August last year. Weeds were in the middle of the lake ( not all the way to the surface ) but you could work a jig through them with no problem. We had our best fishing at the Northeast end of the lake. There are a couple of small points on the way up that held fish. We also had an outstanding evening right behind the cabin. Enjoy your trip, you should have great fishing.

Any verdict yet? I'm asking because I am going back to MLO later this summer (August) or early next year. Would love to go back to Auger.

No verdict yet - as we aren't going until August 2018 probably won't decide until June as the group is fishing together in the Kawarthas for a weekend

I would say its between Pringle, Hurst and Weese wtih MLO and Ogoki Lake in Nakina with Ogoki Lake Outfitters

Cheers

I have fished both Ogoki Lake and Hurst.

Hurst
Fished it in 2016. We hit it around the Mayfly hatch which made the Walleye bite a little sporadic. Sporadic meaning we caught a mess of Walleye, but depending on time of day they could completely turn-off. Tons of pike, but did not catch any big ones despite putting in a lot of work and targeting them. Either way, great lake, we just were unlucky to hit it during the MayFly hatch.

Ogoki
Really cool lake. We went in 2010 I think.... Caught 2 ~ 40 inch pike while jigging for walleye. Tons of Walleye near moving water, ESPECIALLY near Kayedon Lake. This lake is HUGE and can get really rough if conditions deteriorate. We had one scary day on the lake with swells coming over the bow.

Both lakes are great, good luck, have fun!

Thanks! Very helpful
I will make sure I update this thread once we make the final call
