Fishing with the Square-Tail Lodge

The lodge operates a conservation plan that restricts the number of anglers on the lake. Their typical guest population is around six fishermen. They encourage the release of big fish and the number of trophies here is pretty good.

The lodge sits in a restricted wilderness area and its' guests are allowed to fish these waters. This is a Bob White Lodge and he has run it since 1964.

You will need to bring your own tackle and pole. Some plans include a guide and others do not. Expect to fish with a quality and experienced guide if one is on your itinerary. You will also need a fishing license and a preserve permit.

Boats, motors, gas, and the basics are included in most packages. The fishing here is intense and active. Even though the lake is 15 miles long, there are over 100 acres of water just in the preserve. The waters are full of islands, channels, and coves - all of which make outstanding spots to raise big Walleye, big Northern Pike, and trophy Brook Trout.

Expect to fish hard and long and catch a lot of fish.
