An Incredible Fishing Trip

Located in the middle of an 11-lake chain of lakes, it goes without saying that a fishing trip to True North will exceed your expectations. There are few places where you have the opportunity to fish so many lakes while based out of one location. Well, at True North, this is available and so are copious amounts of Canadian walleye, small and largemouth bass, lake trout, muskie, northern pike, and perch. The structure of these Canadian Shield lakes makes them unsurpassed in terms of fishing quality.

Fish at a spot with nobody else around to bother you. It's true that a trip to True North presents you with the opportunity to catch that "fish of a lifetime" you've always dreamed about. True North's commitment to the catch and release of larger fish ensures that the giants remain in the lake for the next person to catch. If a remote fishing adventure is what you are looking for, True North can arrange a daily fly-in or outpost trip as well.

A Place to Create Memories

Family is more important now than ever given all that has happened over the past couple of years. Creating memories on a vacation is one of the most cherished family memories many people have. True North in Ontario, Canada has been helping its guests create memories for over 45 years. With its pristine location on Clearwater Lake, there are a lot of things for the family to do.

While enjoying the great fishing is an obvious one, the fun times you get from exploring the lake, swimming, sun-tanning on the beach, and enjoying paddle sports are also great ways for you to spend time outdoors with those you love. Have a campfire, roast hot dogs, and watch the sunset over the lake. Enjoy a relaxing sauna after a day of fishing or exploring - you'll love the smell of the cedar.
