Looking to hear from any of those who have personally been to Canada and can recommend a lodge. I’m looking to bring entire family up so it must be family/mom friendly. American plan is preferred. Would like to drive, but not opposed to fly-in. Thanks for any thoughts in advance.

Pine Beach Lodge on Eagle Lake just west of Dryden is an excellent family spot with great fishing. Aerican or housekeeping pan. Drive to.

Been to Red Lake in NW Ontario. Quite a drive but they have several fly-inn places pretty neat.

Went last August to Big Hook.

Up until a few years ago, we have gone up to Red Lake, Ontario for the last 35-40 years, with Viking Outposts. It changed hands a year or two before COVID hit. They’re now called Black Moose Outposts. They have recently done some significant upgrades on their American plan cabins/lodge. Definitely worth a look! Good people, IMO, and some excellent fishing, as well. Their email is [email protected]

Cat Island Lodge. We love it there.

I HIGHLY recommend Maynard Lake Lodge. https://maynardlake.com/ I took a terrific moose there a few years ago and the fishing was unbelievable- even for a guy that had been to Ontario MANY times. Can’t wait to take my grandson there!

Like T-roy, been going to Red Lake, ontario for about 30 years. Great fishing. Google, resorts Red Lake ontario.

That's like asking for a lodge without saying what species you're after! lol. What species are you after? Numbers? Trophies? Guided? Unguided?

Cat Island lodge. Flew in with 10 family members. Can't say enough good things about the food and fishing. Walleyes, Northern and good-sized trout. Wherever you go make sure to get good sober guides.

What is meant by the term "American Plan"?

I took the family on a fly in trip with Air-Dale out of Wawa area. They also have a drive up lodge, we just never made it over to there. We all had a good time!

From: Brotsky
Aspen, I believe the American plan is where you sit around and get fat and talk about politics all day instead of fishing ;)

Seriously though, the American plan includes meals, the housekeeping does not.

Aspen American plan they feed you you don’t bring your own food



From: Duke
Brotsky is correct.

APauls, yes I should have clarified a bit… Being the fact that it’s the WHOLE family I’m looking at multi-species areas with amenities that will keep the mass happy. ;)

Thanks for all of the responses, which have allowed me to dig deep the past few days. I did get one booked for the time frame I was looking for and will follow-up with a non-bow hunting related post in a short bit, which will hopefully have be riddled with photos!

Thanks, bowsite members!
