Fishing with Minor Bay Lodge

Wollaston Lake is a haven for Master Northern Pike. The nickname of the lodge is Monster Pike Lodge. In addition to the big Northern Pike, there are plenty of big, fat Lunkers here too. In addition to Wollaston Lake, guests can opt for a fly-out adventure to one of the more remote locations for a full day of fishing. For fly fishermen, the Northern Pike and Arctic Grayling fishing are perfect. For Spin casters you can target Northern Pike, Grayling, and Lake Trout too.

The best time for Lake Trout fishing is late spring. Lake Trout have a very narrow band of water temperature that they enjoy. Therefore, they move to the shallows during the colder part of the year and to the deeper parts during the hottest parts of summer. May/June you find them in about 10 feet of water. July/August they are deep in the lake. For Northern Pike, June you find them in the open water in shallow bays, and by August they are in the weed beds.

Overall, you cannot beat fishing here. This is a lodge that you will revisit again and again.
