Pine Portage Lodge

Bil Spicer Experiences Non-Stop fly fishing action for Pike and Walleye

Pine Portage Lodge has been serving those who love the great outdoors for over 70 years.

Since I was first introduced to fishing, the sport has become almost an obsession with me. I love travelling in Ontario's beautiful Algoma Country and testing different waters. Recently, I had the pleasure of fishing at Pine Portage Lodge on Kaby Lake, which boasts big pike and walleye. 

This full-service Lodge was founded by the Watson family in 1946 and has remained in the family since then. It's family-friendly and pets are welcome. Kabinakagami "Kaby" Lake has numerous weed beds, shoals and dropoffs, and has excellent walleye and northern pike fishing.

When fishing, I used streamer patterns for the most part and had non-stop action for pike and some walleye. Although I was fly fishing, the conventional tackle user can be very successful here using spinners, plugs, and jigs.

16-foot aluminum boats are available with 15 hp motors. The lodge also has a complete line of tackle, bait, ice and gas. After fishing activities include backwoods golf-driving range, pool table, sauna, swimming, canoeing, hiking, satellite dish TV, Wireless Internet connection, mountain biking...and more!

Full American plan and Housekeeping plans are available. The meals are all home-cooked, and you never leave the table hungry. Guides are available on request, or you can head out and do your own thing. The beauty of the area is unbelievable. Abundant wildlife is in the area -- the chance of you seeing a moose, or bear, or waterfowl is high.

I was especially impressed with how the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a successful fishing trip. It seemed everywhere we went we caught fish.
