Fishing

We believe in being people of action, so let’s cut to the chase - this is the only page of the website you came looking for.

Sure, you may already know that Caribou Falls Lodge offers some of the very best Canadian fishing at a price that may surprise you, but did you know that you can fish for Walleye, Pike, Muskie, Perch, Bass, Whitefish and even Trout, all on your Caribou Falls Lodge adventure?

Located just north of Kenora, Caribou Falls Lodge is housed where the English River System and the Winnipeg River System come together to form Tetu Lake, and is surrounded by rocky shorelines, sandy beaches and shallow bays. If you’re a veteran of incredible fishing excursions, you know that this diversity of habitats makes for a bountiful array of catch.

The only thing better than the world-class fish you’ll catch? The world-class place you’ll catch them in.

Where else can you fish while a bald eagle swoops overhead, or a black bear takes a swim in a particularly strong current? When else will you see a massive beaver dam or catch otters chasing each other on a sunny afternoon? On a beautiful fall day you may even see a moose hiding in the nearby foliage. A REAL LIFE MOOSE. That’s what Candian adventures are made for.

Basic Rules of Fish Handling

  • Do not hold any fish by the eyes.
  • Don’t hold a large fish vertically. Always hold your fish horizontally and provide belly support.
  • Do not put your fingers in the gills.
  • Wet your hands or gloves before handling a fish.
  • Remove hook with as little damage to the fish as possible.
  • If possible release the hook from fish’s mouth in the water. If not in the water then net the fish and put it back in the water quickly.
  • Put a big fish in a cradle. The less you handle a fish the better off it will be.
  • If taking a picture – take it as quickly as possible.
