FISHING & MOOSE HUNTING PACKAGES:
There is no limit to the baggage you can bring. There is a limit for the weight each aircraft can carry. Our pricing allows you to pick the amount of weight you wish to bring. Your weight includes your actual body weights and all of your baggage. Additional gear can be flown to your cabin, requiring an additional aircraft at a per pound rate of $2.00/lb.
If you find it necessary to bring extra gear, beverages and food to make your trip more enjoyable, feel free to do so. Additional gear can be flown to your cabin, requiring an additional aircraft at charter rates.
This 300$ deposit/pre-authorized payment is to cover incidentals.
The deposit will be refunded in 2 weeks time on the condition that the accommodations are kept in good order and the rules are followed. The $300 deposit/pre-authorized agreement covers incidentals such as:
- Leaving the camp a mess for the next guest;
- Burning pre-cut firewood outdoors necessitating us to fly in and cut more;
- Leaving fish entrails at the end of the dock which baits bears resulting in damaged cabins;
- And anything else that we brief everyone on prior to their trip;
- Not paying your Satellite Phone bill for minutes used, etc..
All of these scenarios end up cutting into the experiences of others, and costing the company (any everyone) allot of money. It is our hope that this will improve the experience of everyone who uses our services and keep costs down (ultimately keeping our rates down as well). Thank you for your understanding.
Cochrane Air Services will not be responsible for any lost fishing or hunting time or additional expenses incurred for food, hotel charges, or airline fees, as a result of delay or cancellation of any or part of the flight due to the events not within its control, inclusive of lightning, weather sorts, fire or other acts of the elements, unreliability of equipment, or the failure of its suppliers to meet their promises.
Cochrane Air Services LP feels a great responsibility for the protection of our precious fishing resources. In order to guarantee top quality remote wilderness fishing for the future we have instituted a catch and release policy for walleye and a total release policy for pike. It is with the cooperation with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources that we have implemented this progressive catch and release conservation policy.
No pike or brook trout of any size may be kept. No walleye (over 18″) may be kept. Only two walleye (up to 18″) may be taken each day and only for immediate consumption (i.e. shore lunch or camp). No fish may be taken home. Single barbless hooks are strongly recommended for your personal safety and the protection of the fish.
The fish found in these waters take time to grow to such great proportions because of the sub-Arctic climate. For example, the trophy pike that are regularly caught may range in age from 15 to 30 years. An 18″ walleye might be 20 years old. Walleyes in this remote wilderness area don’t often breed until they are seven years old and even the average walleye eaten at shore lunch can be 10 years old. For our conservation policy to be truly successful, we depend on an educated angler who not only uses the correct tackle, but who also shows consideration in the safe landing, handling and releasing of these fish.
We thank you for showing respect and consideration for this wilderness fishery. We can all work together to preserve these fish for many years to come.
