Nowhere the Northern Ontario Fisherman has been are there more back-lake bass fishing opportunities than at Portage Lake Lodge. Portage Lake and four nearby, easily-accessed back lakes – Sunny (LM bass), Crowe (LM bass), Finney (SM & LM bass) and Deep Lake (LM bass) [as well as the Magnetawan River W, NP, SM bass] – offer some of the best remote bass fishing in Ontario.
|The large 3-bedroom guest cottage at Portage Lake holds up to 11 people and is equipped with propane lights, refrigerator, wood stove and inside bathroom with a shower and hot water feed. Next door, there is a separate building that contains the kitchen and a large dining area. With bookings limited to one group, Portage Lake Lodge is ideal for families or larger fishing groups. There is no electricity at this location.|
Not to be overlooked, the base camp lake, Portage Lake, is a fine multi-species lake itself, with walleyes, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass. At each of the back lakes, boats are cached for guest use, but a small outboard (2 HP) will have to be carried in. All lakes are small, easily fished and almost "weather-proof", making it possible to fish on breezy days.
|Imagine catching bass all day long, on a different back lake every day ! Large groups can rotate 2-man teams throughout their stay with everyone having the chance to fish each of these amazing bass lakes and, perhaps, the Magnetewan River.
