Whitemoose Lake - Named after the rare albino moose! Walleye and northern pike can be found in this lake, where we have two boats. The flight out includes a scenic fly-over Nistowiak Falls! Whitemoose features some of the best season long walleye fishing.
Whitemoose Lake lies to the southeast from Otter Lake. The lake stretches north to south and is about 7 km long by 1 km wide (at its widest point). It is actually two lakes connected by a very narrow shallow connecting channel. Whitemoose flows into the Churchill River and therefore holds an excellent population of walleye and pike.
Both species can be caught throughout the body of water, however the most consistent walleye success is found off the edge of the island cluster, in the main lake - and off the larger island, located in the smaller north end of the lake.
Northern pike are best fished in small bays, inlets and along the shorelines. Walleye average 1 kg (2.2 lbs), while larger pike running up to 5 kg (11l bs) are not uncommon.
There are two aluminum boats stored on a rocky point in the lake. Motors must be taken in with the guests upon arrival. There is a floating dock - able to tie up the plane/boat. The shore is very rocky and shore lunch is best prepared at the boat dock.
At Whitemoose, there is a limit of 4 walleye (only 1 exceeding 55cm) and 5 northern pike (only 1 exceeding 75cm)
14 MINUTES FROM THOMPSON'S RESORT
The rates for a day fly-out to Whitefish is $600/per person. Prices are based on a minimum of three people, with a minimum charge of $1,800. Guides are available for $250/day; shore lunches and shore lunch kits are available upon request.
Whitefish Falls is located on the Paul River which drains from Paul Lake down into the Churchill River. Although it is referred to as Whitefish Falls it is actually a sharp dropping set of rapids. The river flattens out into a small lake about 2 km below the rapids.
The river has a small population of northern pike, but it is the walleye population that draws guests in to fish. Walleye migrate from the Churchill River upstream to Paul Lake in early summer and can be found in huge numbers below the rapids.
Jigs with or without minnows are most productive and the fishing is generally in less than 3 meters of water. Fish finders/depth meters are basically of no value at this location.
There are two aluminum boats stored on the shoreline of this small lake, and motors are brought with guests upon arrival.
The water levels tend to fluctuate on this river and as such there are multiple good shore lunch spots in times of low water, but very few in times of high water. Navigation is very simple as the river is narrow and everything is in close proximity.
Whitefish is a CR3 lake, meaning there is a limit of 1 walleye (not exceeding 55cm) OR 1 northern pike (not exceeding 75cm).

Blair is an isolated lake that has neither significant inlet water nor a distinct outlet. It is populated with lake trout and no other species have the ability to access the lake. There is a very strong population of small (1 kg = 2.2 lb.) trout with a more limited population of large (4 kg - 9 kg = 8.5 - 19 lb.) trout that almost certainly feed primarily on the small trout. During the spring season (June - mid-July) lake trout caught range from 2 lbs. to 20 lbs., averaging about 10 lbs. The smaller lake trout can be caught trolling the surface throughout the entire season, whereas the larger lake trout will seek deeper water as summer progresses and water surface temperatures rise. In June, lake trout should be fairly shallow at 15 - 30 feet. In August, lake trout are deep at 50 - 75 feet, but plentiful and can be found only a five minute boat ride from the beach where the plane leaves you. Lake trout are at their deepest in early August. Blair Lake has excellent late - season trophy lake trout fishing!
The lake trout in Blair are brilliantly coloured in silver, with orange, yellow and white markings on the jaw and fins. The flesh is a deep orange red colour.
Blair has an elevation of 476 meters. You can fly fish in the center of the deep circle. Avid anglers can spend the entire day walking around it at 30 - 50 ft diameter (waist deep). It can be fly fished at any time of the season.
Blair Lake has no dock, but a beach-like shore which is where the float plane lands/departs.
There are 3 boats available at Blair Lake, with a 15 hp Boat motor. Blair Lake is a CR1 lake, meaning there is a limit of 2 lake trout, 1 not exceeding 65cm.
"Blair Lake is the best lake trout day fly-out I’ve ever experienced in my life. A mere 15-minute floatplane flight from Thompson’s Resort, Missinipe Saskatchewan and you’re into nonstop lake trout action ranging from 2 - 20 pounds. From June to mid-July, anglers will experience an incredible shallow water lake trout bite. Lake trout can be caught on a variety of baits such as Len Thompson Lures, Lucky Bug Lures, Buzzbom Lures, SteelShad Lures as shallow as eight feet but most commonly in 10-15 feet of water. From mid-July into September, anglers will need to jig or three-way rig the deepest parts of the lake for consistent action. However, at this time of the year, anglers can expect to consistently catch lake trout ranging from 10-25 pounds".
