Red Lake Ontario Fishing Lodge
We have built our Lodge “ way out beyond the highways”, accessible only by float-equipped aircraft. The main lodge is built of logs hewn on the spot. Separate guest cabins are built of log-sheeting, and are lined and insulated. The guest units are served daily, (under our American Plan) are spotlessly clean and are equipped with comfortable beds, clean white linen, warm woolen blankets, towels, propane cooking stoves, wood heaters, refrigerators, hot and cold running water with flush toilets and showers, and 24 hour a day electricity supplied by our own AC generating plant, (plus cooking and eating utensils under our Canadian Plan). We also have new satellite internet for your convenience.
You may be assured of safe, pleasant, comfortable hours on the water in our extra-roomy 16 foot boats, powered by reliable electric start 15 h.p. 4-stroke Yamaha motors. Our equipment is renewed regularly and kept in top condition.

Possibly the World’s Best TROPHY PIKE LAKE
In 2014, a guests at Sportsman’s Lodge caught a Northern Pike weighing over 30 pounds (52 inches) – for a total of EIGHTY THREE (83) PIKE IN THE 30 TO 40LB. (OVER 50 INCHES) class caught by guests since opening our small lodge on fabulous Little Vermilion Lake – earning this lake the distinction of being considered THE TROPHY NORTHERN PIKE CAPITAL OF NORTH AMERICA! The record of this lake is indeed phenomenal!
Little Vermilion Lake is a remote, fly-in lake, 18 air miles north from the end of the highways at the town of Red Lake, in northwestern Ontario. There is only one lodge on this lake, with an intentionally limited capacity, only accommodating upwards to four hundred guests each season.
However, this dark water lake with a magnificent variety of shorelines, many rock, gravel and sand bars, an abundance of lush aquatic vegetation, numerous drainage creeks, over 100 miles of shoreline, with over 40 island and nicely broken up by narrows throughout, is definitely ideal Northern and Walleye habitat! With an abundance of lesser species of feed fish the game fish in this lake seem to have an outstanding reproduction and growth rate! With its relatively constant bottom structure there are not the large deep sections that make it difficult to locate fish during the warmer months of July and August – providing very productive fishing waters throughout the entire season.
