Loch Island Lodge offers a special location in the center of the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve on the shores of Wabatongushi Lake, which is a haven for Northern Pike fishing.

Guests of the lodge stay in outpost cabins located around the lodge compound. Cabins range in size from 2-3 bedrooms. On Camp Lochalsh, there is space for up to 22 people. Guests can also opt for the quiet and remote Otter Island, which has two cabins at opposite ends of the island. Sandy Bay is another option that features two cabins and room for 12 guests. The central lodge offers TV, pool, a tackle and gift shop, large dining room, and wireless internet. The most exclusive option is the Isle of Jordan where a beautiful lodge/cabin sits with enough room for seven people and an outstanding set of amenities.

Fishing on Wabatongushi Lake

Wabatongushi Lake is home to Walleye, Nothern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Whitefish, and Perch. The lake offers 22 miles of clear water and over 10,000 acres of surface. The average depth is 22 feet with holes that sink to 100 feet or more. Expect to find islands, points, sunken islands, and underwater structures that form a perfect habitat to grow large fish. Guests of the Lodge have access to an additional ten portage lakes which include Speckled Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass. Most of the Portage Lakes have boats and motors moored on them.

Walleye range in size from 1.5-2 pounds with ample opportunity to catch a trophy. For Northern Pike, the average fish weigh up to five pounds with a monster weighing in at 20 or more pounds. The Speckled Trout are good fishing too as they range to the seven pound 10"-12" range. There are also swarms of whitefish and perch available that make excellent eating. If you are going to cook in your cottage, bring some fixing for beer battered fish, the Whitefish are that good.

The main lodge sells fishing licenses. Overall, expect a beautiful stay in a beautiful location with outstanding fishing opportunities.
