Welcome to Agate Bay Lodge, on Pagwachuan Lake, just east of Longlac, in Ontario, Canada.

Imagine you are on a boat, a gentle breeze as the day drifts away with the sunset. You hear the haunting call of the loon, watch an eagle gracefully glide by searching for an evening dinner, a beaver watches you as it swims by then dives with a thunderous tail slap... you think this is perfect, when suddenly a fish hits your lure, you set the hook and feel the weight of the fish... all that was perfect now seems even better!!! All this is waiting for you at Agate Bay Lodge.

Are you ready to fish for Walleye, Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Perch, Whitefish, or even Burbot. Maybe you would prefer to fly fish for Speckled (Brook) Trout. Drop us a line, and we'll put a fish on yours.

This site will be updated regularly, so visit often. Send us a note to talk fishing, or better yet, schedule a fishing or hunting trip with us.

We have priced our packages making them affordable, and giving you the option of choosing the type of experience you are looking for. You can strictly fish Pagwachuan Lake, and search for that trophy fish, or choose to be a Bushman (or Bushwoman) and try a different lake everyday getting that fly-in feeling, at a drive-in price. Or select something in between. The choice is up to you, if our listed package does not exactly match what you are looking for… drop us a line, and we will customize a package for you.

Agate Bay Fishing Lodge is, and will remain a small fishing camp. We want your vacation to be relaxing. This is your chance to get back to nature. To enjoy fishing the way it was meant to be. Leave the crowds, traffic, and the pressures of everyday life behind. Not only is the fishing great, but the scenery in this part of Ontario is second to none.

When you stay at Agate Bay Fishing Lodge, you are on vacation, and we treat you that way. We will do everything we can to make your trip enjoyable, and one you will remember fondly for years. Whether you schedule a family trip, or a group of the guys (or girls), this will be a great time for all of you. Picture yourselves fishing the morning, and taking a break for lunch on an island, just your group, and the beauty Ontario has to offer all around you. Make it a shore lunch, or pack a lunch and save the fish for later.

First let's talk about some of the best ways to fish our lakes. It will depend which lake you choose to fish as each lake is different. On Pagwachuan Lake, you need to cover water. Bottom bouncing, trolling, or downrigging will give you your best chance of landing numbers of fish, and size. On Pagwachuan you have a real chance at landing the trophy you were looking for. Many of the fish on this lake will suspend, and move where the baitfish are. You need to move with them. Bottom bouncing is a great way to cover water, and keep your lure down in the strike zone. Since Pagwachuan is a very clear lake, most fish tend to stay deeper than you would find on a stained lake.

If you have never tried bottom bouncing there is a great article on the "Just Fish Ontario" web site. Click on the link at the bottom of the page, and it will take you to the article. Hit your back button to return to Agate Bay Fishing Lodge when you have finished.

When fishing walleye in one of our bush lakes, you can tackle them in a couple of different ways. You can Bottom bounce, or troll, using either method as a search tool. When you find fish, you can then anchor, and fish the area more thourghly. Jigging is a great method to really fish an area. We have found that worm or minnows tipped on a jig have about the same success rate. Colors and size are a personal preference, we have had good luck using silver, orange, or chartruce jig heads, and perch colored bodies. When working an area I will also cast a Rapala or similar type of lure before changing to jigging. It seems to pull out the most active fish first. Then I'll change to jigging to get at the neutral to active fish.

If we are fishing for Northern, then a variety of lure types will work. From spoons, to bucktails, jerk baits, minnow type, zip lures, or even plastics work. Change up your retrieves, throw some pauses in, speed up, slow down, let the bait sink, rip it up off the bottom you get the picture. Keep throwing something different in front of them, and some times you will see them follow, the next they will grab that lure and run.

Pagwachuan Lake (pronounced Pag Washin) is a deep (192 ft), spring fed, cold water lake. It is 12 miles long, and 2 miles wide at its widest point. Based upon a recent survey done by the Ministry of Natural Resources it supports excellent populations of Lake Trout and Walleye with very good Northern, Perch, Whitefish, Speckled Trout, Herring, and Burbot (the freshwater cod). There is also evidence of Lake Sturgeon present.

There are many different types of structure to challenge the most savy of anglers. From sharp dropoffs and deep water humps, to shallow areas with weedbeds, rocky areas, stream inlets, and river outlets. You see, at Agate Bay Fishing Lodge there are many choices to make... but those choices are yours.

At Agate Bay Fishing Lodge, you don't have to hire a guide. We will do everything we can to get you the best fishing experience possible.
