This Conservation Area in Northwestern Ontario Offers a Road Map to Sustainability
The Perrault Falls Adventure Area (PFAA) was originally established in 1999 as the Cedar River Watershed Association Inc. Its goal is to protect and promote the land, lakes and wildlife.
The PFAA covers 600,000 acres of pristine wilderness in Northwest Ontario. It is an ecosystem independent of the lakes and rivers outside of its boundaries.
Due to the foresight of the lodges in the area, their vision to sustain their fisheries for generations to come is working. The fishing is fantastic and continues to improve each year.
To sustain their fisheries for generations to come by:
- Releasing of larger breeding class fish
- Promoting sustainable fish habits
- Ensure healthy water quality
The lodges in the PFAA follow these guidelines:
- Release all walleye over 18”
- Release all northern pike over 27.5”

Other things to do in Perrault Falls Adventure Area
Grab a bite to eat or get a cold drink at the Whiskeyjack Restaurant and Tavern which is just south of where Perrault Lake meets Wabaskang Lake on the east side of Highway 105.
View the waterfalls where Perrault Lake flows into Wabaskang. You may have driven over the waterfalls and not even known they were there! It is across from the old Rainbow Point Store (Now Nordic Point Lodge). There is a small gravel parking lot where you can park and walk the path toward the waterfalls. There are no barriers so viewers beware. You can also walk down along the side of the waterfall to see the very lush forest surrounding the water.
You can also choose to take a short drive north up Highway 105 to Ear Falls. Maybe even play a round of golf.
Whatever you choose to do in the Perrault Falls Adventure Area—fishing, hiking, blueberry picking or wildlife viewing—know that its future is in good hands.
