   Tinker's Places

canadian fishing at its finest
Covid 19 Update

Dear fisherman, travelers, adventurers... friends, 

In these very uncertain and difficult times, we want to ensure you that we are monitoring this situation and the effect it has on our season, and ultimately, your trip, carefully.  Our priority is ensuring the health of each guest and employee.  With a temporary border closure and restrictions for recreational travel in place, we will be readying our facilities to meet every recommendation and standard.  We look forward to welcoming each of you when these measures have been lifted and we can safely do so.  Until then, we will be preparing and eagerly anticipating your arrival.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about your upcoming fishing plans.

Whether you are an avid fisherman, or simply looking for a unique outdoor experience to share with your family, at Tinker’s, you can do it all. Choose your comfort level from fully-modern American Plan accommodations at the main camp at Nestor Falls or fly out by float plane to one of our remote wilderness retreats, where you’ll re-live many of the ways of the pioneers. We have been building more than a business at Tinker’s these last 34 years –We’ve been building friendships. We’d like to count YOU among these special friends… This year, put yourself in our place… Tinker’s Place.

The experiences in nature were an excellent break for us - we got to canoe on the pristine lake and listen to and view a great variety of birds right on our cottage deck. I definitely see why they have guests that come back year after year!
