Pasha Lake Cabins is an easy six-hour drive from International Falls. Pasha Lake is just one of a long chain of 30-plus lakes in the Northwestern part of Ontario. The lodge attracts fishermen because this is a trophy fishing paradise for Walleye, Northern Pike, Trophy Lake Trout, Brook Trout, big Perch, Whitefish, and Splake.

Guests stay in one of the newly constructed cabins which offer clean and comfortable digs. There are 12 cabins in all and each one sleeps 4-8 people. Cabins have a full kitchen, and a three piece bathroom. There is also a campground on-site.

The main lodge is the social hub of the lodge and is where people enjoy satellite TV, games, and a living room where you can lounge and enjoy lake views. For families, there is a swimming beach that is clean and shallows making it a haven for kids.

The lodge is open year round and once the lakes have frozen over, the ice fishermen stake out their spots.

Fishing with Pasha Lake Cabins

Guests can bring their own boat or enjoy one of the camps rental boats. Boats come with motors, and oil and gas is available.

As mentioned this is a prime area for trophy fishing. From Pasha Lake, you have access to Lake Nipigon. Pasha Lake is catch and release only, but Nipigon Lake offers limits of each type of fish available. Nipigon lake is also a great place for trophy fishing.

The best fishing is on Pasha Lake because the conservation efforts have allowed the populations of fish to grow long and fat. This is one reason that the Lake Trout here are huge. The inflow of fresh water helps provide nutrients while the shallower basin warms up fast in spring given the fish a longer season to grow.

Anyway you look at it, Pasha Lake is a win/win. For a large number of trophy fish species, this is a great place to begin your fishing adventure.

  • -I stayed here in July 2022. -I?ve been fishing Ontario lakes for 35 years, and this was my best experience! The photos don?t do it justice because we didn?t capture the larger fish in pictures. That?s because a lot of the time we were both hooked in and trying to get fish back in the water quickly so there was no time for pics. The photos are of those we kept to eat, and they were delicious! More on that later. Northern sizes ran 18-32? and Walleye ran 12-24?. Those are good sized fish. Nothing beats the sheer numbers of fish though. We totaled 80+, averaged about 20 a day and fished 4 days. We simply rested the other three days because we were on vacation after all, and we had caught so many on the days we were on the water that we were satisfied. -Before coming here, I read many reviews on many places. I chose Pasha Lake for multiple reasons and I?m very glad we did. I?ll say, don?t let any negative reviews deter you from choosing Pasha. Having been here, I can say that likely those come from unrealistic expectations. 1) This is remote Canadian fishing. It?s going to be a little rough, but that?s the appeal. Why would you want business calls to interrupt you while on the lakes? The whole point is to disconnect and enjoy life and nature. 2) You have to be ready to be an adult and self sufficient to some extent. These are remote lakes. That?s why the fishing is so great. It takes a little work to get to these places. Bringing out a motor and/or gas is just required. A little walk through the forest is necessary to get to these remote lakes. That?s what gives you these great experiences. If it was super easy it wouldn?t be worth it. 3) Chad is an excellent host, but if you can?t accept 1 and 2 you might not love it here. That?s not on Chad at all. In fact, he?ll set you up with detailed information about all the lakes, sizes and types of fish you can expect, detailed instructions to get there, and other helpful advice, but at the end of the day you have to get the fish on the line. That?s fishing after all, and some days/lakes are just better than others on a particular day. For the most part though, every day we had was successful, but we did have to adapt. You?ve got to be willing to find what works as far as bait and method. All that being said, I feel like even a first time fisher can have great success on these lakes. For first timers, it probably would be best to get the guided trip first, and then go from there. We were supposed to do the guided day, but missed it due to an unavoidable event. I was planning on using that for tips for the rest of the week, but missing it didn?t hinder our catch at all going forward. Did I mention it was the best fishing overall I?ve had in my last 35 years of Ontario fishing? That?s saying a lot for Pasha Lake Cabins, as I have stayed in a few places but haven?t left any previous reviews even though they were all pretty good. A lot of the other guests I interacted with had been coming for years and loved it as much as I did. -The amenities were great. Our cabin had everything we needed. AC/heat, microwave, stove, fridge, bathroom with shower, beds. Not enough electrical outlets but we knew this beforehand so I brought an extension cord and power strip and we were perfect. We got sporadic internet and cellular coverage, but the Lodge has excellent connectivity and is no more than two minutes walk from all the cabins. Plenty of cookware and cups, silverware, plates. We came prepared to cook, and basically ate fish we caught every day. Beer battered walleye with fries, Northern Alfredo, walleye sandwiches, grilled northern with rice and beans, it was delicious! -Before you arrive Chad will send you helpful hints. Follow them and your trip will go great. -What I loved the most was the variability of the lakes. There?s so many lakes to try out that every day is like it?s own separate adventure. It was so cool just arriving at a new lake all to yourself each day.

  • I really enjoyed staying at Pasha. We had a new adventure every day. The cabins were comfortable, clean, in a beautiful setting, and well appointed. We had good to excellent fishing each day and never fished the same water twice. Chad and his family are great hosts and very helpful in getting you on fish. It's a nice mix of do-it-yourself fishing while still have guidance from folks that really know the area. The big lake with Ian was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had.

  • Wow x 1000! Chad and Ian and their family and crew are dynamite folks and just as nice as can be. Our cabin was spotless, very comfortable and had an incredible lake view. Their fishing knowledge of the surrounding areas is top notch and my group got into plenty of fish in no time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I can?t wait to go back!

  • My family has been going to Pasha Lake Cabins since 1993. Over these years the resort has had three owners, Chad and Michelle are by far the best and most accommodating we have experienced. Over the years we feel we are treated like family not customers. In fact, the the first time I met Chad was in 2006, we had an incident with our trailer in Thunder Bay. He offered to meet us half-way in Nipigon with a trailer that we could put our trailer on so we could actually get to the resort. That level of service is very uncommon. Chad has always been more than willing to help us with any repairs to our vehicles, tires, outboards, or let us use his shop to fix it ourselves. Chad and Michelle also offer a resort-wide fish fry every Wednesday during the summer. We have had many opportunities to leave Pasha Lake Cabins, but we have many reasons to stay...and Chad and Michelle are a big part of why we will continue to choose Pasha Lake Cabins every summer.

  • Had an amazing 3 days of fishing with my daughter. If you are not against a little drive and hike to get to great fishing every day then you need to go here. Chad took us to a different lake each day with fish on once the bait hit the bottom. As with any great guild, if the fish are not biting fast enough, big enough, and/or it's not what you want, Chad would move us to another spot which always seemed to be better. Going to Nipigon is a must, but save it until last. Ask about the 3 different lake trip. Worth every penny.
