Bass Fishing at Waterfalls Lodge

The Kecil lake system is one of Algoma Country's most beautiful areas and the home of Waterfalls lodge. Waterfalls Lodge is an ideal sportsman and family vacation retreat. I recently had the pleasure of fishing the area and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself and caught so many fish I actually lost count. There are private lakes that you can travel to that are chock full of fish. The smallmouth fishing is outstanding; I took big fish on streamers and poppers.

If you're a spin fisherman, jigs and hula poppers are what are used most. The biggest smallmouth I got was about 5 pounds but I did see much larger fish. The walleye fishing is second to none, with huge schools along the shoals, along with excellent pike fishing. They do have lake trout, whitefish and crappie in the area, but I did not try for those.

This is a first-rate resort that is geared for your comfort. They have a fleet of new 16-foot boats with 20 horsepower motors and sonar and electric trolling motors. The food is outstanding; the rooms are extremely comfortable and better yet, extremely clean. The lodge has full American Plans along with evening meal plans and Housekeeping Plans. Guide service is also available, or you can go on your own, as they will give you maps of the lakes with the best fishing clearly marked on them.

There are cottages right on the waterfront with docks for each cottage. They have large motel-style rooms that are extremely comfortable. The dining room is equipped with a bar and pool table along with a television. I cannot say enough about this place. The owners go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable. Please give them a call and find out the best time for you to be there. I would whole heartily recommend Rob and Kathy at Waterfalls Lodge.
