Maynard Lake Lodge

Why You'll Love It

Maynard Lake Lodge is accessible only by float plane on the renowned English River System, 50 air miles northeast of Kenora, Ontario, Canada. Our rustic, comfortable lodge is the only one on the lake and provides a remote fishing and hunting experience for up to thirty guests on truly unspoiled waters. Providing both lake and river fishing, Maynard Lake can be successfully fished whether casting, trolling, drifting or still fishing. The choice is yours.

From bays and beaches to rapids and falls, Maynard Lake has the structure and current to provide "spring fishing" throughout our season; mid-May through September. Here, experienced and novice anglers alike catch plenty of fish, even on slow days. Most do fine with artificial lures, jigs, spoons, spinners and crankbait. Live bait (minnows and leeches) are available for purchase at the lodge.

We want your trip to be a success. Upon arrival, we will show you where to fish, what to use and how to use it. YOU WILL CATCH FISH! For those who wish, we have professional guides available, trained not only for fishing but for service as well.
