Lady Evelyn hosted trip

 with temagami Outfitting CO. 

The Lady Evelyn is a wild and rugged river system in the heart of the Temagami region in Northeastern Ontario. Humans have paddled these waters for over 3,000 years - the river meanders to an eventual end point at Smoothwater Lake.

 

We'll be heading down this river in search of wild Temagami brook trout. We'll be paddling, portaging, and fishing down the river system over the course of 5-days and 4-nights. This is a truly back-country fly fishing experience in one of Ontario's most beautiful regions. This is a CATCH AND RELEASE trip as the brook trout, although plentiful, are a precious resource in the area. There are three trips to choose from, each with five slots. Bring your friends and fam - details below!

THE DETAILS

This is a fully guided trip. You will be hosted by one of Temagami Outfitting's back country tripping guides and at least one member of the So Fly Crew. That's right. You're stuck in the woods with us. We'll be snapping pics along the way so you'll have a great memory when this is all over. All meals, canoe, and camping gear are provided.

Meals will be prepared for you over campfire. So Fly has now run this trip with Temagami Outfitting for two seasons and will act as your fly guides. Fly fishing gear, although happy to be shared, is not provided. Sure, we'll have a ton of flies, but coming prepared is key. Especially when ol' butter-fingers-Aldo dunks his whole box down a waterfall.
