Ontario Fly in Fishing Lodge

Sportsman’s Lodge is located in a fantastic wilderness setting north of Red Lake, Ontario. On the shores of Little Vermilion Lake, the lodge is accessible only by float plane. Little Vermilion Lake is famous for trophy-sized Northern Pike. Please give us a call if you’re looking to go Pike fishing in Ontario.

Walleye fishing is also excellent. We are the only fishing lodge on the lake, so we provide a clean, uncomplicated, unpolluted, relaxing atmosphere. We are dedicated to offering our guests excellent Ontario fishing and/or Ontario hunting, top service, the finest equipment, warm hospitality, and reasonable rates.

Try one of our three Ontario fishing outpost camps for a true adventure. Just you, your friends, a beautiful lake and fishing all day long. The Ontario fly-in outposts are north of the main lodge on Hornell Lake, Mantricia Lake, and Warrington Lake. All of our fishing outposts offer spectacular fishing for Walleye and Northern Pike and outstanding scenery.

What is Sportsman’s Lodge…

Sportsman’s Lodge is not a large, fancy, resort-style facility with all the fast paced activities normally associated with such an operation. Sportsman’s Lodge is a small, clean, family-operated Ontario fishing camp, dedicated to offering our guests excellent fishing and / or hunting, top service, the finest equipment, warm hospitality, reasonable rates and a relaxing atmosphere.

Oh yes – we do have a few of the necessary trimmings, such as satellite internet, 24-hour telephone service, 24-hour a day electricity supplied from our own generators, television, an ice-making machine, etc., but basically, we are just what the name implies – a spot where the Sportsman can get back to nature and enjoy outstanding fishing or hunting, in a clean, uncomplicated, unpolluted and relaxing environment.
