Misaw Lake Lodge is easy to reach. There is a direct flight right to the lodge from Winnipeg or via a two-leg flight to Silsby Lake Lodge in Manitoba and then onto Misaw Lake Lodge. The lodge sits on an island in Misaw Lake some 800 miles north of the Canadian/U.S. border and almost directly on the 60th parallel. This is a remarkable water system that offers outstanding fishing for trophy Northern Pike, Arctic Grayling, and fat Lunkers. Guests have access to 16 lakes or rivers where the lodge holds exclusive fishing rights. Another option for lodging is their Patterson Lake Outpost. Either location will put you in the thick of big fish. Misaw means "it's big" in the Cree language.

Fishing with Misaw lake Lodge

Fishing here is unreal. Guests have access to 16 bodies of water all of which feature big Northern Pike, fat Lake Trout, and plenty of Arctic Grayling. When we say big, we mean big. Expect Northern Pike in the 38 plus inch range with many caught in the 40-46 inch range. Mid June to Mid July is great for Pike fishing as you can sight-fish the monsters. As the summer progresses the big Pike are found in the cabbage weed beds.

When it comes to Lake Trout, expect fish in the 15-30 pound class the really big ones tip the scale past the 40 pound mark. Early season Spring fishing is the best time for Lake Trout fishing. The fish move close to shore to take advantage of the warmer water and food.

The Grayling are a smart fish with a high dorsal fin. They range to 20 inches in length and a big one is about three pounds.

Overall, you cannot beat the fishing here.
