An Outing to Clearwater Lake



A beautiful Fall day to venture back into Clearwater Lake.  The trail was a bit muddy but only a brisk 15 minute walk to the boats.  Henry and Anna are fishing with yours truly, George, Tim and Cam man the other boat.  The morning of fishing seems successful………



A few days later George decides to return but via the creek this time.  Is it passable?  It should be, but it may be slow…… 


Tim manhandles the African Queen through the last stretch of the creek.   Perhaps the 15 minute portage trail walk wasn’t such a bad deal after-all?  Now, if I can only get the guests to carry me across the portage trail………..

  1. Wow, those water levels are down considerably. You forgot to mention those nice new motors, seats, and rod holder brackets on the portage boats! The Lake Trout fishery in both Clearwater and Eagle Lake offer some amazing lake trout fishing opportunities. It’s probably not worthy of it’s own post, but here is a short video focusing on our fall trout fishing experience:

    By the way, very nice pictures!

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
