Excellent lake fishing awaits at Gowganda Lake in the northern Ontario. The 5 mile Gowganda Lake with its 35 miles of shoreline is rugged and unspoiled and offers superior lake fishing. A gorge at the east end brings the Montreal River rushing in over Walleye spawning rapids. A waterfall cascading into a 140 foot fishing hole, rocky shoals, weeded areas, drop offs, and stumpy shallows, make this a "Fisherman's Paradise" offering a variety of fish. Northern Pike, Walleye, Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch. Adventurous anglers can take a side trip to one or more of the countless backwood lakes where the fishing is superb. Experienced guides will take you to a lake so unspoiled you will feel like you are the first to fish it. This lodge offers access to fifteen different lakes and they have boats and motors on most of the lakes.
In the spring Walleye and Pike can be found in the east branch of the Montreal River. Later on in the year the Walleye, Pike and Lake Trout are in the deeper water and around the heavily structured areas of the lake. In September, when the water temperature decreases, the Pike and the Walleye move in to shallower waters. Pike and Bass are very aggressive at this time of the year. Bass can be fished on this lake as early as ice off (the lodge has no closed season on Bass and Pike). They go on biting until the very end of the season.
There is much more than lake fishing at the lodge. Relax in wilderness' luxury. Hike the woods & trails. Watch countless species of birds. Enjoy the sauna, sandy beach, windsurf, canoe, paddle boat, volleyball, horseshoes, and recreational room with pool table. Experience the fellowship around the campfire and watch a spectacular view of the Northern Lights.
