Fishing with Gow-Bush-Kon Lodge
Gowganda translates from the Ojibway to mean "The place of large Pickerel." Pickerel being Walleye. As such, people come to fish the large Walleye population. They also may target Jumbo Perch, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Lake Trout.
Beyond Gowganda Lake, guests have access to the Wapus River, which is the western branch of the Montreal River and empties into Penassi Lake. The Wapus River is a good place for Walleye and Northern Pike fishing. Anywhere you find the Northern Pike you are likely to find the Jumbo Perch.
Other Water Options include Stumpy Lake, Hangingstone Lake, Obushkon Lake, and Elk Horn Lake. If you are a Smallmouth Bass fanatic, then Elk Horn Lake is your paradise. Obushkon Lake offers excellent shore fishing, especially for Northern Pike.
Many of the lakes have boats on them for guest use. The lodge uses 16 foot Sylvan boats with 25 hp motors. Boats feature split bench and pedestal cushioned seats with a live well and fish finders. Guests are also welcome to bring their own boat.
Overall, expect a well maintained, clean and comfortable lodge. The lodge is ideal for families and groups.
