Early Spring Fishing

Exceptional Early Spring Fishing

Early Spring Fishing

With the beginning of May on the horizon, it isn’t too early to begin thinking about early spring fishing.

This year the walleye season opens on May 21 which, considering the pace of ice-out on Eagle Lake, is probably a good thing.


Cold Water And Early Spring Fishing

One of the nice things about a late ice out is cold water…….and cold water equals great shallow water lake trout fishing!  In past years a late spring has also produced some big walleye and pike for those fishing out of Vermilion Bay Lodge in May.

If you haven’t thought of fishing this time of the season, then you really need to reconsider!  Early spring fishing can be exceptional!

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.
