Birch Lake Resort

A Fly Fisher’s Delight for Smallmouth Bass

Catching smallmouth bass on a fly rod is truly an angler's delight.



Nestled in Algoma Country, only an hour or so from Sault Ste. Marie, Birch Lake Resort is surrounded by numerous lakes that have exceptional smallmouth bass fishing.

To find bass that average 3 to 4 pounds and that will willingly come to fly -- that is indeed a special place. In this area, you can use topwater poppers, streamers, and crayfish patterns to hook the bass.

Using 6- or 7-weight rods, this is great fishing at a great price! Best of all, the surrounding lakes have public access.

Birch Lake Resort is just 10 minutes from Thessalon, which allows you easy access to services (fuel, fishing licenses, groceries) and even a night out for dinner at one of the local restaurants. This drive-to resort has comfortable and affordable cabins which sleep up to 4 to 6 anglers. Each cottage provides all necessities for your stay including a fully equipped kitchen and bed linens, satellite tv, and free WiFi, and the resort offers boat and canoe rentals for guests. If you have a fishing buddy, this cottage resort is pet-friendly.
