Fishing and Boating
Those same rapids that keep out the tourists also provide you with a system that produces amazing catches of fish, in terms of both size and quantity. The fishing ranges from large, open, shallow lakes where lunker northern pike lie, to deep pools below fast water that produce big catches of walleye. If you like size and a good fight, we catch literally hundreds of northern pike over 15 lbs. each season. And if you're looking for walleye, perhaps the best eating fish in the world, you won't be disappointed on the river. Large whitefish can also be enticed with a fly, and just a mile west of the lodge there is a small natural lake with a healthy population of rainbow trout. For a change of pace, prize winning yellow perch can be caught within sight of the lodge. Another bonus is that with the variety of fishing choices, there are no wind-bound days at the lodge, unlike larger lakes in the north. And best of all, our catch and release policy ensures that a large fish caught in the system lives to get even bigger. Of course, you can catch and keep your limit of smaller fish for the table, as well as your limit to take home.
As for equipment, we have 15' Misty River aluminum boats along with 15 hp Mercury and Yamaha outboard motors. This combination gives you a great mix of portability, speed, and reliability, as distances can be long on the river. We also have 17' canoes for those who are so inclined. All boating accessories are also provided.
