Being a dual citizen of both Canada and the US, gives me a somewhat different perspective in rating Canadian fly in fishing lodges.
Here the service you receive is top notch, the cuisine is outstanding,the scenery is serene and the angling does not disappoint!
The support staff are all exceptional,and at the same time respectful of one's space.
It's one of the few resorts where they actually carry out the suggestions made from previous guests.Thanks for an improved menu with a much better variety of fruits and vegetables.
The cabins are comfortable and updates to them are noticeable.
The new boat motors run perfectly and the boats are pretty dry unless there is a downpour like the ones we had during out stay.
Apart from not having padded boat seats(sorry, I'm a bit fussy...) everything was nicely set up for an efficient fishing experience.
We are already booked in for next year....
I have fished many lodges in CA over the years and this one by far was the best. The fishing was great and the staff was even better! Pat the camp manager was always checking to make sure we got what we needed and made us feel welcomed and appreciated. Tom the chef did a great job and the meals were great. Shannon working the kitchen and tables was also great and kept a fresh pot of coffee ready. Gary made sure our boats were ready, gassed up, and full of bait as well. He or another staff member met us at the dock each time we came in!
The cabins are very well kept and clean.
Just a great experience and one I would recommend for those wanting to do a "fly in"; catch great fish and not have to drive 5 hours once you get into Canada. You pick up the plane maybe 10 minutes out of International Falls, MN.
Taking my grandchildren with me next year. That's how much I enjoyed this trip!!!
