Red Lake Fly in Fishing Lodge and Outposts Canadian fishing for trophy Northern Pike and Walleye
Red Lake Fly in Fishing Lodge and Outposts Northwestern Ontario
Possibly The World's Best Trophy Pike Lake
Since opening our small lodge on fabulous Little Vermilion Lake, our guests have caught more than 89 Northern Pike weighing 30-40 lbs,(over 50 inches) - earning this lake the distinction of being considered The Northern Pike Capital of America!
The record of the lake is exceptional and well documented by fishing enthusiasts who return to these productive waters each year for a chance at a world class trophy Northern Pike. Little Vermilion is a remote, fly-in lake, 18 air miles north of the town of Red Lake in northwestern Ontario. Sportsman's is the only dodge on the lake and we intentionally limit our capacity to ensure the best fishing for our guests.
Great fishing all season long...With its relatively consistent bottom structure and lack of deeper areas which can make it difficult to locate fish during the warmer months of July and August, Little Vermilion provides very productive fishing waters throughout the entire season.
Little Vermilion Lake Trophy Northern Pike Fishing
If you dream of catching a trophy Northern Pike, your choice is simple - go where the odds are best - try sportsman's Lodge for your best chance of realizing you dream. Approximately 74% of the guests at Sportsman's Lodge have caught the largest pike in their lives while fishing Little Vermilion Lake!
Walleye fishing is also excellent. Sportsman's Lodge is the only lodge on the lake, so we provide a clean, uncomplicated, unpolluted, relaxing atmosphere.

What is Sportsman's Lodge
Sportsman's Lodge is not a large, fancy, resort-style facility with all the fast paced activities normally associated with such an operation.
Sportsman's Lodge is a small, clean, family-operated Red Lake fly in fishing lodge, dedicated to offering our guests excellent fishing and/or hunting, top service, the finest equipment, warm hospitality, reasonable rates and a relaxing atmosphere.
Oh yes - we do have a few of the necessary trimmings, such as remote satellite Internet, 24-hour telephone service, 24-hour a day electricity supplied from our own generators, television, an ice-making machine, etc., but basically, we are just what the name implies - a spot where the Sportsman can get back to nature and enjoy outstanding fishing or hunting, in a clean, uncomplicated, unpolluted and relaxing environment.
