Red Cedar Lake Camp sits right off Route 64 in Marten River, Ontario. Guests of Red Cedar Lodge have the option of staying in the main lodge or any of the 12 guest cabins. On-site facilities include a family room with large screen TV and a pool table. The on-site restaurant features weekend specials such as all you can eat fish and chips on Friday night.

Fishing with Red Cedar Lodge

This is Walleye country, and fishermen should expect plenty of action from the local waterways. The lodge sits on the shores of Red Cedar Lake and adjacent to Loon Bay, which is rich in Walleye, Trout, Small Mouth Bass, and Northern Pike. The folks at Red Cedar Lodge understand how to fish these waters. These are deep lakes, and Red Cedar Lake has a max depth of about 114 feet.

The camp offers guided and self-guided fishing trips. You have access to 14 foot Naden aluminum fishing boats with 9.8 HP 4-stroke motors or 15 HP two-stroke motors. Guides have a deep knowledge of the lake and are available for half and full day fishing trips. If fishing for Walleye expect to catch between 5-10 Walleye per day. Some days you may land as many as 20 or more fish.

The Lake and the Fish

Red Cedar Lake offers over 83 miles of shoreline and 6000 acres of open water. It is easy to make your way from Red Cedar Lake to Loon Bay and back to some of the quieter waters away from the public lakes. Throughout the waterways, you should encounter Walleye trout upwards of 25 inches in length. There are also Norther Pike with their huge mouths full of razor sharp teeth. Northern Pike is not a difficult fish to catch if you understand their ways. They are lurking predators that sit and wait for a meal to pass by their mouth. If hungry, they will strike most any kind of fly, but they are fond of small mammals. A good tip is to use a dry fly in a mouse pattern. They also like to perch in the river weeds where smaller fish will seek shelter and become food for the pike.

Also around the lake you will find smallmouth bass tucked into the weedy narrows and bays. This is prime habitat for smallmouth bass, and bass fishermen will not be disappointed in the selection and population of smallmouth bass around the area.

Overall, expect a comfortable stay in a well-built cabin or at the main lodge. Your hosts, Scott and Sheri, are warm and hospitable.
