Default Perrault Lake 6/22-6/29

Headed back up to Perrault this June. Last trip was June 2017 and the walleye fishing was very slow on the lake, we are hoping for better action this time. We are taking a first timer this trip so keeping the fingers crossed. Over the years we have done really well on the lake. If the lake is slow we have a few more bodies of water near by we can take the boat to get on some walleye. Is anyone else headed up this week? We are staying at Rainbow Point again.

This may be obvious and I missed it but why would you go back to a lake you had poor results on unless you have prior history beyond 2017 that suggests otherwise? I would shop for a different lake if fishing was poor. Maybe it was a bad weather week?

Good luck

Default Fair

That is fair. I clearly did a brief scan and when I saw poor fishing/going back I was like...................what????

There was definitely clarity there and I missed it

Hope fishing returns to the good ol days!

I'll be there June 8th for a week trip, and July 6th for another week trip (money permitting, no job as of November 2018). I'm ready for some action.

A little off topic but our group had a off year at a lake we had several very good trips to. Rebounded with another couple of very good trips after the off year.

I think it just goes to show you even in NW Ontario it can be more fishing than catching under the right conditions.

Agree with last post. Have had some really bad weather in trips that have undoubtedly impacted fishing. We like to move around quite a bit so that coupled with bad fishing generally leads to us moving to another lake fair or not. Have had 2 what I would say are really bad fishing weeks in the 25+ years we have been going North. One drive to and one fly in. I’m not going to mention lakes or outfitters as I’m sure fishing can and is very good under normal conditions. We just never made it back due to our gypsy nature and the extreme desire to see more and different scenery while always looking for that perfect place......still working on that.

Good luck

Default How's fishing at a certain lake?

I have been fishing Wabaskang for 31 years on the same week. It's just across the road from Perrault Lake and a friend of mine who fishes Perrault reports similar fishing success. When asked about the fishing on Wabaskang, good, bad or what ever I tell them it depends. I have had way more good years than poor. I prefer the water to be on the high side and water temps in the low 60 degrees. In 2018 the water was low and the weather hot 90s and the water temps around 70 or a little warmer. We caught fish but it was like you expect in July. If I had my pick of weeks I would pick the first week of June. I guess in summary you can't rate a lake based on one year. Ask others about other years in the case it just happens to be slow. Sometimes no matter what you do its just slow.

check with borntofish. He has written a book about fishing Perrault though out the season. It is a good read for any Canada bound fisher.
