Nador Walleye


Nador PikeFor many people, Clifton Lake epitomizes the 'ultimate' outpost camp. This comfy cabin for 4-6 people sits alone on Clifton Lake, an amazing body of water on the Johnson River, one of several rivers that tie into the North Seal. Clifton has it all - big pike, lake trout up to 40 lbs., arctic grayling, and possibly some of the finest walleye fishing on the planet. The walleye here average 20-26", with walleye up to 32" landed. They are well-fed, chunky, and amazingly plentiful. The top day ever on Clifton was over 400 fish caught and released. With all of those chunky walleye around it produces some amazingly big pike. One pike lost at the boat (while walleye fishing), was estimated at 56" or better by a veteran guide. When we opened the North Seal in 1998, the In-Fisherman crew took over 5 hrs. of footage and the Lindners actually considered using it for promo videos they shot for Normark. Clifton is ideal for parties of 3-6 people and has a camp manager onsite.

Below is a note from Ron Nandor, longtime guest, who has fished several of Gangler's outposts over the years and has a special fondness for Clifton.

Hey Ken!

Nador LakerJust a quick note on our trip to Clifton last summer. I would say it was our "typical" week at Clifton in late summer. . . . meaning the pike were everywhere, fat and getting fatter. We found them in the normal weedbeds but ran into them in shallows in big numbers. Running a plastic in a couple feet of water and watching pike devour them is incredible fishing. We have found a spot that we call "Frog Bay" that is not a big place, but the numbers and quality of fish that we pull out of there on plastic frogs in unbelievable.

My sister Cindy joined us this year. . . . she hasn't fished for pike since we were growing up in the 70's and our dad would take me and my sisters to Ontario fishing. It was like riding a bike for her. . . . she caught a pike on her first cast and didn't stop there. She caught pike, lake trout and walleye all week and kept up with "the guys" like a pro. Both of my sisters have been to Ganglers now to experience a week of not only incredible fishing, but also quality family time.

We look forward to another great trip this summer!

Clifton Lake Availability 2019

We still have some great spots available for Clifton in 2019. Grab them now, it will be an outpost experience you will never forget and will gladly repeat!

June 22-29 How is this still available? This great spot has been filled by the same group year after year. Unfortunately, they could not make it this year. If you want a sure fire early season spot at an amazing outpost lake, GRAB THIS QUICKLY!

July 13-20, 20-27, Aug. 3-10 These are all prime summer dates, like the article above. Big pike in the bays and weed beds, walleyes stacked in the river channels and current areas, lakers in the holes, and grayling trying to safely hide away in the rivers. Great weather, great fishing, what more can you ask for?

If you want Clifton but have a group of 6-8, we suggest Stevens/Nicklin. Another one of our top camps, very similar to Clifton in habitat, but has two cabins instead of one. We still have a bit of July and August availability there. Please call for dates. Group discounts available.


We have a couple of great early season main lodge short trips still available at a special price. Too hot to handle, give us a call if you are interested. Group discounts available.

June 20-24 - for 2-8 people 4 days fishing

July 6-10 - for 2-8 people 5 days fishing, special evening departure on July 10. This saves a half day when traveling home.
