****************DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY AT THIS LODGE****************
My friends and I visited this lodge thinking that we were going to be fishing in trophy smallmouth waters and nothing could be further from the truth. The lakes and surrounding waters have been picked clean. Based on all the photo's I have seen catch and keep is the policy. The staff and the facilities are nice but that alone can't justify the price. Four people, four days, four fish, largest...9 inches. Enough said..
Appreciate your post. I've thought of heading
up to this lodge next year, as I talked with
them at the Cleveland Sports Show and their
brochure and photos at their booth made you
think this was primo water.

I can attest to this Lodge's poor fishing. I was with Highly Disgruntled on that trip. Talk about poor fishing. I will never go back and would never recommend this place.
We went there last July. The first cast of the trip for me was a 5 pound smallie. As you can guess that was the highlight of my trip. I could count the number of fish that I caught the rest of the week on one hand. Of course they were killing them the week before we got there. Don't think we will ever go back there.

Anyone wanting a great fishing experience at a very reasonable cost. Try "The Idyllwild Resort" on Kashabowie Lake, Ontario. Located just 65 mi W/NW of Thunder Bay, Ontario (off Hy.11). The lake is 14 mi. long has many islands, bay, and channels. The fishing there is great for Walleye, Lake Trout, Small mouth Bass, and Northern Pike. Rates for a (fully modern) 3-bedroom cabin for up to 6 persons are $450.00 per week Canadian dollars (which translates to about $320.00 American dollars total). Not per person as many places charge and then they charge American Dollars beside. For a rustic, 1 bedroom cabin that sleeps 4, the weekly rate is only $250.00 (about $180.00 American Dollars). You can bring your own boat or rent theirs. Call and talk to Sue at 1-807-926-2413 or e-mail Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org . I have done fly-in fishing, fished Red Lake, Ear Falls, Parroult falls, Vermillion Bay, and I would say that this place provides more bang for the American Dollar than any of the others I have tried so far. I do not have any financial interest in this lodge or any other benefit from telling about this place. I just wanted to share an excellent Canadian fishing trip that the average American can afford, with fellow fishermen Hope you enjoy your stay as well as me and my wife will June 17-23.
