    Just wondering on how many IDO members are going to Pasha this year and when. I’m going the last week in July. This is also my first time up. Also the first one up there should start a picture post. Thanks Mower

We plan on returning again maybe the following spring, but for sure the next September again in 2011 also!! I think it will be cool to do a Pasha Pic Post!! We’ll be sure to play!!

    Mower- We are headed up from NY mid-June.I will post on how things went. I have done alot of looking at different places to fish ( as I have for the last 37 years) and fished alot of different places but seems Pasha Lake will be it from now on. I have not heard any complaints at all of Chad and his Wifes place and am looking forward to getting up there.Funny thing as all the business he has, not many are posting much about it. Must be they want to keep it a secret!!

    Hey Chad
    I am having a hard time rounding up a crew to come up there,
    as soon as my wife heard about bears in the area she got cold feet.
    I am not exactly sure how she found out about the bears?
    Anyway during the process of trying to round up some angler friends there always seems to be some kind of hang up.
    I haven’t given up yet,and should be calling you soon.

    After looking at that Laker, now I’m really ready. Is it next week yet.

    Chad, I shot you a couple e-mails. I’m sure your busy these days.

    Do we need anything special like vehicle/boat proof of insurance? We have and run marine radios. Do we need that ROC-M to communicate back and forth between boats?

    Yup, made it back finely. Had some good times and of course some bad. Pic’s will be up tomorrow. Chad run’s a nice place up there. Report is—- Onaman- Big fish and you can get a lot – Be prepared to walk, about 1.5 Miles but 23″ is going to be small/to average. Plan, if you have shore lunch that you’ll kill a 23″er to eat. My suggetion is to pack lite, A hand full of jigs,some worm harnesses, 1-2 poles, fish locator??, If you have a cart of some kind to put your equipment on You’ll pobably have to bring in gas also. We put most of our stuff in a couple of totes and straped them on a 2 wheel cart. A deer cart may work better. Organize at home and try to pack to travel over so-so ground. Big fish, yes I think it’s worth it if you plan ahead. North wind – lots and lots of fish. For the week 4people average 500+ per person-for the week. Fish were from 15-30 feet down. Got a few small Blue Walleyes also- Neet to see. I heard that Chad was the best at Walleye dream trips. Call and book, he was full when we got there. I only seen him about 3 times all week. Blueberries should still be ripe Pancakes with fresh berreis- yum Gulp alive worked well tooo. Got to go if you have ??

    Thanks so much for your report. I’m headed to Paha in 11 days with my two sons. I was curious if you fished any other lakes other than Northwind or Onaman.

    Did you catch any northern pike?

    See any wildlife?

    Also, sent you a PM.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I was at Pasha again about 2-3 wks ago…Fishing was a little slow. One couple at camp got skunked one day at Northwind. I caught plenty of fish while I was there. I strongly agree with the idea of having a cart if you plan on fishing Onaman. I caught most fish on jig/minnow 20-30′ of water.

    If you don’t have an ATV, don’t walk to Beatty no matter what Chad says…it’s a long (1 hr) walk across a beaver dam and mosquito infested woods. The lake itself is beautiful and I would like to fish it again, but only if I had a ride. A GPS is great for Onaman…it’s a big lake with lots of islands. Feel free to PM me if you want more info.

    Thanks for the advice. My dad and I are bringing our pack frames. That should make long hikes easier.

    1hr walk in lake?? Hmnnnn!! I’m the kind of guy that drags stomper bucks 3 miles through swamps!! Because others wouldn’t think of it!! LOL!! Lake Beatty sounds like just the lake for BIG TANK FISH with limited pressure!! Now I’ll likely dope up with mosquitio repellent, but I like the sounds of it!! Hey Chad…..What does Beatty have to offer for fish?? Pike/Walleyes??

    Hey Guys, I just found this site, thanks to Pete!! I’m headed up to this area in a week, with my 3 kids. Chad was full so we are staying nearby. I was wondering your thoughts on bringing my own boat? I’m pretty set on doing it but I guess I’d like to hear from some people that have been there. What are the landings like? I heard that I can probably get on Northwind? I have a 3/4 ton diesel, so steepness and power aren’t an issue, but clearance may be as my tandem axle Ranger trailer sits fairly low to the ground. I can launch in very little water. We plan to fish Onaman for 1 day, so thanks for the tip on the carts. Are there any other lakes in the area, especially over by Nipigon that I would be able to use my own boat on? How about on Nipigon, (if the wind doesn’t blow) is there decent pike or wallleye fishing there this time of the year? We’d love to catch a lake trout or brookie, but I assume that is all downrigger style fishing and we aren’t set up for that, nor do we like to troll very much anyway. Casting and jigging are our favorites if anyone has any suggestions on action for the kids. this is our first trip to Canada, we can’t wait!! Thats enough questions!! Thanks guys!

    That sounds like a great question for Chad…Even if you aren’t staying at his camp, I’m sure he’ll point you in the right direction if he sees this post. He’s a real nice guy..

    I’d contact Chad. You probably wouldn’t have a problem at northwind. It’s ruff roads all the way. The grader was just starting on 801 though. IDO does have a vidieo on a river off Nipigon. May even be a couple that you can try. I’d bting your boat and have some comfort.

    Hey Chris –

    Beatty by far is one of the best inland lakes for BIG pike and trout. The nice thing??? It’s attached to a very accessible chains of lakes that also have quality pike. If you get bored on Beatty catching big pike… not sure if that ever happens??? … you can try your hand at some lake trout fishing. Big water, lots of food, no pressure and true Canadian bush access… That is a staple fishery for Pasha Lake Cabins!

    Check out recent pics…. (I would add more from the guys that make their 2nd trip there this week but they aren’t back yet)
