Wilderness Lakes is one of Europes Pike fishing meccas, it is a huge expanse of waterways that are full to the brim with hungry predators. The boats that you fish from during a week at Wilderness Lakes are perfect for covering the water and then working areas of the structure. With a cooked meal to return back to each evening and breakfast and lunches prepared each day you can put all your efforts into searching out the big toothy critters that inhabit this place.
Little is known about the history of Lapland’s Wilderness Lakes, the only real snippets of information that has repeatedly been mentioned about the area are of the leviathans that dwell in its lakes. Local people have often spoken of giant water demons inhaling their Char or Brown Trout just before they reach their outstretched hands.
The lake system is made up of many lakes ranging from massive expenses to smaller bodies of water most of which are joined by channels or rivers. There are more than 74 miles of water to go at and it would take an angler many whole summers to explore just half of its secrets.
The area where Wilderness lakes can be found is also well known for its huge heard’s of Reindeer, you will also be able to spot some very large Moose roaming the area at times. The nearest shops are approx. 25mins drive from the lodge and there are several traditional log cabins scattered about in the local area.
The system has countless shallow bays scattered around and you can reach these either by boat or car, these bays are the main area for big Northern Pike to lie basking in the sun waiting for their next meal to pass this can make for some fantastic surface fishing. When shallow running or topwater flies and lures are cast into these bays it can be a frenzied explosion as multiple fish charge in to be the first to eat.
The fish in this system are incredibly long and renowned for their fighting qualities. As well as these large Pikes, the lakes also hold big Brown Trout and Grayling that can be caught frequently and can make a nice change from chucking big flies and lures at huge predators.
