Plummers Lodges

In one of our cottages, you'll sleep soundly in the comfort and privacy of a spacious log cabin, wake up or relax with a hot bath or shower in your private 3 & 4 piece bathroom. The breeze from the lake will give you an appetite, and you may want to do it yourself with housekeeping accommodations, or come down to....

Fishing in Ontario is what Marten River is famous for and that's still what we're known for today. It should be fun, productive and exciting. We planned our packages with this in mind and are proud to offer you brand new boats and motors, all bait, gas, fish finders, live wells, landing nets, maps to where the fish are, life jackets, and safety kits.

After all, you'll most likely spend more time on the water than anywhere else. All you need to bring is your camera, your fishing gear and some enthusiasm.

The Lake system is big and is encompassed in the Nippissing Crown Game preserve. There are a series of four lakes on about 24 km of waterway full of structure and plenty of fish. Little Marten Lake, Big Marten Lake, Bruce Lake and Mcfee Lake are all excellent choices. We’ll put you on to fish, show you the hot spots and share with you the seasonal locations where the hot spots are.

Our lakes have Pickerel (Walleye), Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Perch or pan fish. With live minnows included in your boat rental, you’ll find the fishing exiting and rewarding. Catch your limit or catch and release- the choices are yours and with the equipment included above in your package, we make it easy!

What is a blue pike?

The blue pike is not to be confused with Lake Erie’s famous pickerel (walleye) bearing the same name and now believed to be extinct. This fish is a full-fledged member of the pike family (Esocidae). It feeds like a pike, fights like a pike and looks like a pike except for one striking difference – it has no body spotting, but exhibits beautiful iridescent blue-silver flanks. In many areas, most often the U.S., the silver is the more prominent tone. Therefore, most U.S. specimens are referred to as silver pike. This term was first attached to specimens obtained from a lake in Minnesota in 1930. But the first known professional assessment in Ontario was made by a man named Prince after examining a specimen caught near Skarbot Lake in 1898. Prince named the fish blue pike because of the obvious colour. Therefore, on the grounds of historical efficacy and the fact most Ontario specimens are blue, blue pike aptly describes the fish’s main characteristic. In past readings, I had came across references to blue pike in some fisheries journals and at least one record book, but I never really became interested in this fish until hearing about it from Bill Tregenza, a top-notch guide at Marten River Lodge. Tregenza, who has fished and lived in the area around the lodge his entire life, informed me that Marten River Lodge provided day- trip access to some back lakes that produced what he called blue pike. He showed me a picture of one and it indeed was blue. Sensing the opportunity to catch one of these fish, I decided to try a couple of these lakes while staying at the lodge in the fall of 1994. As it turned out, seeing a picture of a blue pike from one of these lakes was much easier to accomplish than getting one on the end of my line. Two days of back lakes fishing produced one small blue pike for my fishing partner, John Walker. As you can be seen from the photos on the first page of this feature, the blue pike is a fantastic looking fish, with sheeny, blue sides, nearly clear fins and scales so fine they look and feel like those of a trout. But that was the only "blue" we could muster.
