High Hill Lake Outpost Camp
High Hill Lake is a very special place to the fishermen who visit this lake every year. It is one of the highest per capita trophy Northern Pike lakes in Manitoba. The same catch-n-release policy that we deploy on Silsby Lake also pertains to High Hill. In addition to the world class pike fishing, High Hill produces excellent Walleye fishing for both quantity and quality.
"Sam… Wow, what a week this year, I have to say this was one of the best trips to High Hill for me yet. The fishery was a little flat last year, but it was on fire when we got there in early June. We noticed that the Master Angler Northerns the group landed, and we landed 7 were generally fatter than in the past , were materially more aggressive, and the Walleye were larger and much more plentiful. You know I come up every year in a group with Joe Dickerson and for the couple of days we spent in a boat together we cleaned up on Walleye and mid-size and large Pike. All were aggressive and we noticed more generations represented in the catch, particularly Walleye ranging from smaller to larger fish with increased quantities. I had a great time all around, I was in the boat with one of our first-timers on day 3 and he landed 2 master angler Pike at 41” and 43” inches, respectively. I added the picture below of my 2 Master Angler Northerns at 44” and 46” respectively. And a stringer of Walleye where everyone we kept was in excess of 20”. A quick testimonial for co-anglers in the boat I wouldn’t have landed either of the Pike if not for the Joe and Jim Dickerson. I caught my big fish on a 5 of diamonds (yellow) and a #5 Mepps spinner (red & black). The largest fish in the group for the week was a +47 inch Northern and a +27 inch Walleye. Not sure what you’re feeding the fish but we had a great week, keep up the good work." Jim Dees
“Hi Sam, another great year of fishing with the Fetts. The afternoon I caught this beautiful 47 ½” pike, we found ourselves without any measuring device! Knowing we had a large trophy, we implemented the use of the boat casting platform to mark the length and later get an accurate measurement with a tape. This was my 5th trip with our group to your outpost camps. Great food, great fishing and best of all great service! Look forward to seeing you again next year.” Rusty Beishline
“Hi Sam...My Dad, nephew, daughter and I flew into Silsby Lake in July and fished at High Hill. My daughter Brooke, age 11, can not quit talking about her experience and the trip was one that we will all cherish forever. The one picture of Brooke (right) was a walleye she caught while trolling with a five of diamonds. Although we did not get a true measurement of the fish (spent too much time taking pictures), I am guessing it was close to 30". The funny part was she released one about 2-3 inches shorter than that one about ten minutes earlier. I have never been happier to be outfished by a an 11 year old girl! I feel you went out of your way to make our trip a very pleasurable experience. The boats, cabin, and employees were all top notch. Thanks again and we look forward to our next trip.” Brian and Fred Hartley
Crestliner 18’ Kodiak boats are coming to High Hill in 2015! We tested one of the boats at High Hill this fall and it was a huge hit with the guests. All boats will have NEW Yamaha 25 hp four stroke outboards with electric start. The boats will feature fish finders, marine radio, livewell, bilge pump, cushioned swivel pedestal seats, multiple storage compartments, flat floors with marine grade rubber carpeting and a huge casting platform. The old boats from High Hill will be taken to Whitley Lake and tied up at the other end of a portage trail from High Hill Lake. Both lakes can now be fished with ease. For the adventuresome, there will also be canoes at the mouth of the High Hill River to float/paddle your way to Whitley and beyond. This new boat/motor setup will be one of the nicest you will see at any outpost camp in Canada.
This picturesque 14 mile long lake is unique in it's contour and oval in shape. In the spring, "Barlow Bay" and the famous "Omaha Bay" to the west and the renowned "Bay of Pigs" to the east provide incredible trophy pike fishing in the shallows. In the months of July, August and September, High Hill forms large cabbage weed beds that hold fat trophy pike. The more adventurous person also has the opportunity to travel seven miles down river to Whitley Lake, which is eight miles in length with great shape, structure and surprises off it's own. Caribou, Moose, Bear and Eagles (both Bald and Golden) are common sightings during this adventure.
