Overview

Good fishing spots keep changing with the seasons and the years, We've been flying throughout Northwestern Ontario since the early 60's and have learned to watch for these changes and hunt out new spots. This year we're inviting you to add a new thrill to your vacation experience by flying -away back in- where the lakes know only the occasional fisherman to their waters. Northwest Flying has been servicing Nestor Falls and surrounding lakes for well over 50 years. We are located on Hwy 71 only a short 1hr drive from the Minnesota border. We offer charter flights to many excellent commercial camps as well as private cabins only accesible by floatplane. If your on a budget we have many remote lakes set up with boats & motors for day trips or camping trips. We also own and operate several 1st class outpost cabins that are all within a short 20 min flight on some excellent fishing lakes. So give us a call to discuss your next Canadian fishing adventure.

Business has been in Nestor Falls for a long time. Busy place in the summer. Seems to have a good safety record, although using older type aircraft, than their competition.

Easy to get to, they have several different fly-in fishing packages, reasonable rates, and their equipment is in good shape. Everyone working there is dedicated to making your fly-in enjoyable and hiccup free.

I've used Northwest Fly In service to fly in and out from Hector Lake Fly In Camp every year for over a decade now. Never so much as a hiccup. Excellent service always on time safely. Just can't say enough good about them.
