Oak Lake Lodge

Here are the top three things customers talk about with Oak Lake Lodge:

  •   the fishing
  •   the food
  •   and the hospitality

We promise you the following at our Lodge:

  • abundant walleye, smallmouth bass, and northern pike
  • tasty home-made meals in our main lodge
  • service with attention to detail
  • clean and comfortable accommodations
  • well-organized trips
  • professionalism and expertise at every corner

Our team cares and that caring is displayed in paying attention to the details of your vacation so you can enjoy your fly-in fishing trip to Ontario, Canada.

The English River System, in upper northwestern Ontario, is filled with an abundance of food and nutrients for the walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, and muskie that live in the lakes.

The waterfalls surrounding our lake make boat access impossible, keeping out adventurous weekend fishermen. And to be honest, if there were roads to Oak Lake, the drive would be too far. 

View Oak Lake Lodge on Google Maps where we have entered our longitude and latitude so you can get a true sense of our location. Oak Lake is big and remote and filled with fish.  Visit our lodge or outpost and be guaranteed great fishing.

Our remote Canadian wilderness fly-in fishing lodge is the only lodge on all of Oak Lake. This is an oxygen-rich lake, fed by a provincially protected-waterway called the English River System.

There is no industry at all along any of the river systems that flow into Oak Lake. You will experience a pristine environment and catch healthy fish from a clean river system.

Our lodge provides the comforts of home. We are a small lodge, a boutique lodge, that caters to no more than 32 guests at a time.

Oak Lake Lodge is also a catch and release lake which is another reason our fish populations are so high. You’ll be astounded by the number of fish you can catch in a Canadian lake that is secluded, without road access, and deep in the majestic and life-giving Canadian boreal forest.

Even though we are a catch and release lake, we do cook your morning walleye catch as part of a special “shore lunch” all guests love. 

All these factors ensure that you will catch an abundance of fish on your fishing trip to Ontario, Canada.

Oak Lake Lodge provides 16 foot Lund Rebel boats for guests and 17.5 foot Lund Outfitters for guests who hire a guide. All boats are equipped with Yamaha four stroke motors, flat floors and comfortable pedestal seats. 

Our docks are maintained and in great condition with slip-resistant material for your protection. 

A Recap: What is included in a Lodge trip?

  • flight from Vermilion Bay to our private lake on a float plane
  • three meals a day including the popular shore lunch experience
  • 100% guaranteed excellent fishing. Our lake is fly-in only meaning weekend fishermen cannot access the lake.
  • daily maid service to tidy your cottage
  • morning coffee delivery before breakfast
  • modern amenities – hot showers, filtered water, linens, towels, flush toilets, fridge, private screened in porches, private living rooms, wood burning stoves, and more
  • excellent quality boats and motors
  • guiding is available as an additional option
  • an option to book the all cottages for a large family or business groups.

White River Family Fishing
7604 Hwy 62, Flippin, AR 72634, United States

Arkansas,  USA | Fishing Charter / Guide

We feel that we can make things happen, rather than make excuses. We work all up and down the White River with all the resorts and can pick people up on the bank in front of their cabin or public boat ramp. We also have split days. Split days is where large families want to cut the cost in half, we will fish till lunch time, cook lunch, then others go fish after lunch. Because of that, 5 can catch enough fish to feed 15 for lunch and a new 5 go fish after lunch. (This way they only pay for five fishing.) We also have people who want to put their vacation in our hands, so we do overnight camping trips. During these trips, we rent cabins on the river and fish all day then a chef will prepare supper. Supper usually consists of a Porterhouse steak with all the trimmings. We also provide breakfast the next morning. For lunch, you can eat the sandwich box lunch or pay an extra $20 for the super Shore lunch.

We also offer a long distance trip where we can cover 30 to 50 miles in one 8-hour day to see more river. This means you will be motoring more than fishing but nature enthusiasts like to keep moving, where fishermen just usually like to try and catch numerous or larger fish. Some people have caught as many as 60 each!

Our trips offer a lifetime of memories never to be forgotten what ever people ask, we can usually help them achieve their goals. If it’s your first visit we usually ask for a fifty percent deposit. We furnish everything you need except your fishing license and tooth brush. Our pricing includes everything. We are still among the lowest priced White River Fishing Business with the best equipment and professional guides. We can Provide Shuttle services from the 2 local airports.

Prices and other information can be found on our website or please feel free to contact us.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Calgary, Canada Fishing Charter

There is something special about fishing in a beautiful setting like the one the Bow River has to offer. For one it makes fishing very hard as its so easy to be distracted by the stunning mountains, crystal clear pools or some of the magnificent wildlife species (grizzly, black bears, elk, moose to name just a few).  On the off chance you notice that you have missed out on a school of fish, you ultimately realize that you essentially don’t feel like you have “missed out” on anything as you just spent that time consuming soul-food by observing the beautiful surroundings.

In saying that if you’re not into fishing and you’re looking for breathtaking views, you’re in luck ,we also offer a great sightseeing packages. You will not be disappointed since you will get to experience waterfalls, wildlife, hoodoos and views of the spectacular mountains.

We are a small family owned/operated business located in Calgary, Alberta.
Our main objective is to provide a memorable, fun and safe float down on the Glacial Lake in Banff National Park and down the beautiful upper and lower Bow River in our custom built mahogany drift boat.

The upper Bow River will leave an unforgettable impression on you as it waves its way through the romantic Canadian Rockies. This section of the river is known for its amazing landscape and wildlife encounter.

The lower Bow River just south of Calgary is a world class trout stream and according to the Alberta Fish & Wildlife Department it holds an impressive 2500 catchable trout per river mile. This section of the river is more nutrient rich compared to the upper Bow River and subsequently making this section more popular among anglers.
However it is also flowing through a beautiful landscape that hosts an variety of bird life which is perfect for bird watching.

Below is our custom built mahogany drift boat which is configured to accommodate 2 person plus oarsman comfortably but it also can be configured for 3 person plus oarsman.
The wooden drift boat is a classic as it generates stunning pictures for those seeking a rustic look and it gets plentiful of attention. There hasn’t been one time where we didn’t receive any compliments on our boat every time we take it out and of course we are secretly loving it.
