About Dean

Northwest Ontario Fishing Guide

Based in Kenora, Ontario, I have been fishing NW Ontario's "Sunset Country" and other provinces for 40 years. From Lake of the Woods to area rivers and lakes... and some unique backwoods waters... I have a good understanding of what's biting where and when. 

Whether it's on open water or the ice, I am very passionate about catching fish: trophy walleyes, pike, slab crappies, lake trout, smallmouth bass, muskies, and more. But I’m also extremely passionate about helping other anglers of all ages, skill levels, and walks of life improve their fishing techniques. Not only is my goal to help you catch numbers of fish or a new personal best, I provide each client the individual guidance they need to become a better angler -- whether that's learning a new fishing technique, how to interpret your electronics, or nuances that have taken me a lifetime to figure out... I enjoy sharing what's been successful for me, as well as introducing anglers to Northwest Ontario's beauty and world-class multi-species fishing. I also enjoy putting on an authentic shore lunch for those clients who request it. Pretty hard to beat fried walleye, potatoes/onions, and beans cooked over a wood fire on a secluded island...

Happy Customers

All ages. All skill levels. All having FUN!

You tell me what you want. Lots of walleyes? A shot at a trophy? Smallmouth bass action? Flinging big baits at toothy critters like pike and muskies? Slab crappies? Dive and roll lake trout? And most days, we can try to cross several species off your list! Now look at these happy customers... could be you!

"Dean's your man in NW Ontario. Heck of a guide... a good sense of humor, too. Always lots of fish and lots of laughs."
