Here you can fish at your own pace and stay out on the lake as long as you like, in your own reliable boat. The avid angler may want to plan their trip in the early summer when you can fish close to 24 hours a day during the midnight sun. Or come in September when the lake trout move into the shallows before spawning. Expert fishing guides are always available as an option during your stay, and it’s a great idea to hire a guide for the first day of your trip.
Optional fly-outs are available for day trips at several outpost lakes in the area for a true Canadian wilderness fishing experience. These outposts are short 10-minute flights by floatplane from the lodge. There are boats and motors at the outposts, with great fishing for walleye, pike, grayling and/or lake trout. There are even two nearby hike-in lakes with healthy populations of northern pike.
When you are not fishing, there are opportunities for hiking near the lodge on marked trails that wind throughout the rugged Canadian Shield. The high rocky escarpments offer stunning views of the amazing wilderness that surrounds the lakes. Be on the lookout for wildlife. Or take a canoe, peddle boat, paddle board or kayak out in the bays near the lodge. There are remote beaches set up with BBQ pits, tables and chairs for the best shore lunch or wilderness picnic you’ve ever had.
When the days get shorter in August and September, there are great opportunities to view the aurora borealis. While fishing is the focus of these trips, this is much more than a fly-in fishing lodge, it is a complete Canadian adventure destination with something for everyone in a truly remarkable location.
