Atikokan Ontario Fishing Trips for Walleye, Pike, Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass

Atikokan, Ontario Fishing Trips

branchs seine 1Located in Northwestern Ontario Canada's Sunset Country, Branch's Seine River Lodge is a modern, full service, drive-in fishing and hunting lodge. Seine River Lodge is 70 miles east of the Fort Frances, Ontario / International Falls, Minnesota border!

Lake Fishing is done on Banning Lake, the centre of the Seine River Chain of Lakes. When you step outside the lodge, you have water-access to 5 lakes / 30 miles of terrific fishing. The system here boasts an array of different water to suit your angling desires: smaller lakes and larger lakes, dozens of islands, bays, river channels with current, tons of structure and varying depths.

Fishing on the Seine Chain

branchs seine 2The Seine Chain is home to over 50 remote lakes. Marmion Lake (the Floodwaters) is one of the most popular lakes, located 1/2 hour from the camp and home to the annual Atikokan Bass Classic. Other lakes in the Atikokan area include Big McCauley Lake, Miranda Lake & Milk Lake, Twinling Lake, Dovetail Lake and dozens more.

The Seine Chain has strong annual walleye spawning grounds and has a high population of "good eaters" with a number of trophy walleye caught every year. The stained water keeps the action going all day long.

branchs seine 3The Seine also has some of the best smallmouth bass fishing Ontario and Canada has to offer. Seine's world-class smallmouth bass has gained a reputation with high numbers and loads of large trophy "football" smallies. Professional and recreational smallmouth anglers alike come from all over North America for these trophy bass. The Seine Chain and the Atikokan area are definitely a go to fishing location for trophy smallmouth bass fishing!

The countless weedy bays, rocky structure and prolific forage-base produce the best northern pike fishing.

Other fish founds throughout the Seine Chain includes Crappie & Trout. In the winter months, we offer Ice Fishing for Trout, Walleye and Pike.


branchs seine 4The location in the centre of the Seine Chain and central to dozens of off system lakes makes for an ideal base for the cabins.

Seine River Lodge's cabins are all new or newly renovated and offer all the amenities of home including satellite TV, wifi, air conditioning and decks or verandahs overlooking Banning Lake. They're the perfect, clean and comfortable base for your Canadian fishing adventure!
