Lake Herridge Lodge is a year round lodge that offers fishing, hunting and just the tranquility of northern Ontario's Temagami forest. The lodge is a series of lake front cottages that are fully equipped and offer 1-4 bedroom units with private bathrooms. The communal areas of the lodge feature a swimming area, and for dry fun there is TV and games. There are propane BBQs available for those who want to grill the day's catch.

Fishing on Lake Herridge

The primary target fish is the walleye. The average Walleye weighs in between 2-4 pounds with trophies tipping the scales at 5-12 pounds. The lodge offers a catch and release lake with monster fish. Expect walleye to weigh in around seven pounds and smallmouth bass to tip the scales at six pounds. Average size Northern Pike weigh 3-8 pounds with monsters topping out around 20 pounds. The lake trout though are the real surprise. They typically average 3-6 pounds on the regular lake, but in the catch and release lake, they can hit the scale at 20 pounds.

For those of you who like the plush life. The lodge offers a deluxe fishing package. It does not get better than the deluxe package. On top of your cabin, your fishing trip comes with guided fishing, home cooked meals and lunches, a boat, bait and landing nets. Just bring your own fishing gear. The best part of the deluxe fishing package is the fact that the lodge helps you clean, package and freeze your catch. It is a great value for those who love to fish.

Fishing for Monsters On Herridge Lake

The Smallmouth Bass are feisty. You can find them all over the lake, but they like to hang out in the upper water level of the lake in the evening and morning. A top lure or fly can entice them to strike. The Northern Pike are aggressive monsters, even when small. A nice dry fly or top lure through a weedy section is all it takes to get these fish to strike. For lake trout think light tackle with a tri-swivel and four foot leaders for the weight and lure. Walleyes want the bright colored spinners in orange, red, and chartreuse.

Overall, expect an outstanding lodge with well-equipped cabins and all of the fun you can handle.

  • One of the best-run small camps we've ever been at. Brad and Nathalie are friendly, available and very helpful. The cottage we stayed in (number 1) was recently renovated, rustic but very clean and tidy. Excellent drinking water from the taps is a nice bonus. Kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The lodge has a beautiful games / rec room with all kinds of games, pool table, poker table, books etc. The fishing boats and motors they have for rent are in great shape and they have a little beach with kayaks, paddle boards, pedal boat and canoe. Good fish cleaning hut. Everything here is nicely maintained, clean and tidy. The lake is spectacular. While the cottages are close to Highway 11, it's easy to get out to the quiet areas of lake for fishing, swimming, kayaking etc. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Was an awesome experience! Brad and Nathalie were amazing hosts. They went above and beyond our expectations. The lake has amazing fishing. The only downfall I found was the 11 being so close at night. If you're looking for a great vacation this is the place. We will definitely be returning next year.

  • My wife and I had a one week stay in Cottage 7. We were there in September. Cottage 7 has a great view of the water. You can look out the window and see what the water is like right away. Cottage 7 is the smallest cottage I believe. It was cozy for two people for the week but manageable. It has a bar fridge not a full size one, so plan your meals accordingly. We took our kayaks out almost every day. We didn't experience too many boaters zooming past us once we got away from the lodge. The shoreline was spectacular to look at as you paddled along because there were so few cottages on the lake. We managed to explore the majority of the lake via kayak. The fishing was great as well. We targeted small mouth primarily but found the odd pike as well. We didn't catch any monsters but a good number of fish. Definitely worth the drive.

  • Brad and Natalie at Lake heritage lodge and resort run a terrific operation. We go a few times a year and always have a great time. Cabins are spotless and beach is fantastic. Boats and motors are well looked after as well. The fishing is good and the back lakes are just like going to a fly in experience.

  • Our family plus our pup just stayed here and although it rained all day everyday.... this place did not disappoint. It's beautiful from the scenery to the cottages and their newly renovated gaming lodge. Nathalie and Brad were the kindest hosts you could imagine. We intend to return next summer when we can take advantage of all that they offer.
