Trout Rock Lodge
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I have fished at Trout Rock for more than 15 years, the most recent in June, 2014. Each time the pike fishing was superb, to put it mildly. Trophy pike [more than 40 inches] are caught daily and sometimes exceed four feet in length. In addition to the great fishing, the facilities are wonderful and clean, with bunk beds and indoor plumbing in the cabins. Lastly, the staff are dedicated to the clients needs. This includes all the fishing guides and the kitchen personnel that provide hearty, tasty meals. I recommend Trout Rock Lodge happily and without reservation.

Wow.....the best place for Aurora! Not just the cabin is clean and comfortable. (Although the toilet and shower is restricted to use until June) The wilderness environment is so peaceful and beautiful. All the lodge staff are nice nice and really nice..... They provide 24 hours mini bar, hot chocolate, cup noodles, chips....etc.... A heart warming place.
They said : '98% you can see the aurora if you stay three nights here.' Yes! We are lucky! We just stayed two nights and aurora appeared every night from 23:00 to 3:30. It's amazing!! Can't miss it ! I will be back in summer again!

Room Tip: The cabin with bathroom.

This is the best place for aurora viewing because viewing is available all night and is just outside of the window in your room. Very clean and facility was excellent considering the temperature and amenities available. Don't expect any luxury. Toilet and shower cannot be used and the only way to take a shower is to get back to Yellowknife. Ice fishing and skidoo driving is also exceptionally well organised.

Stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights, same as previous reviewer's comment, can't ask for luxury but clean and comfortable to enjoy the wilderness area. We love that we just step out from our cabin to see the Northern light. We are lucky that we have a very good Chef during our stay, Mia the Japanese girl whose a holiday work visa Chef, she made us Japanese French fusion very delicious, we are appreciate that she made a excellent dinner with limited ingredients. Also the day time activity, Norm and Mike take us for boat ride to one of the place on the island, we went to hiking and guys went to fishing, we pick the wild berry to made jelly and tea leaves during hiking, guys got 5 big pike, they made a very great shore lunch for us. The whole trip are unforgettable for us. Highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Cabin with bathroom recommend.

A couple of friends and I headed out to Trout Rock Lodge for a weekend in January. We were picked up by a bus from our hotel and drove to the meeting point and rode the rest of the trip in a Hagglaund vehicle… which can travel anywhere. It was a great experience! Ragner, the lodge owner hosted an amazing weekend! The food at the lodge is great, the staff and guides are friendly and knowledgeable. We went on snowmobile ride out the ice fishing spot. One of my friends caught a large pike, which was prepared for us for lunch in the nearby camp. This was an amazing adventure, I can’t wait to go back in the summer for the fishing trip!

My Fishing Partner and I took this trip in June of 2012, on his first cast of the day he caught a fish, then another on the second cast, and so on for 5 days - The first fish were bigger than most fish we pull out of northern Ontario. We caught only 28 fish over 40 inches, but the fishing, room, meals were great, I would go back in a second. We took Ragners boat from Yellowknife (that was also quite a ride), and the Modified Beaver back. The shore lunches were also great, this is a trip I will always remember.

We stayed there for 4 nights for aurora viewing. You can't ask for luxury in a lodge, but the room and ensuite are clean and decent. Ragner, the owner runs a tight ship which ensures our safety and pleasant stay. Ron the Mr. Fix-it, from hardware to tricky situation, from photography advice to entertaining guests, he does all well!

For city dwellers like us, the stay was a wonderful wilderness experience. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to view aurora in an exclusive location and relax in a beautiful natural environment with expert guide.
