Take the time to enjoy your surroundings

One of the things I have noticed about fishing on Eagle Lake is that it is easy to get too focused on just catching lots of fish. Take the time to soak in your surroundings and pay attention to what is around you. One trip that breaks up the week for me is a portage to Clear Water Lake. In high water years you can navigate the 100+ curves on the river taking you from Eagle Lake to Clear Water. In low water years, and when you just want to take a walk…try the short portage. Gord is the only resort with boats on this lake. In low water years you will have the lake to yourself. Fishing for lake trout and whitefish can be fabulous. In fact I honestly don’t remember a trip not catching fish. But on the walk back, take time to look for the lady slipper orchids in the spring, or the blueberries, or the moose and bear tracks. Gord can give you directions to view the pictographs up and close.

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
