Dog Lake is one of Ontario's best-kept Walleye secrets. It's far enough south for a long growing season producing big Walleyes but still located in a very remote region of Northern Ontario. As a result Walleye fishing pressure is low and the population of Walleye is high. Dog Lake is fed fresh water and nutrients from the Lochalsh River and the Dog River. Dog Lake is the headwaters for the Michipicoten River, which is also famous for Walleye fishing. The Walleyes have lots of highly oxygenated water and food along with classic Canadian Shield structure, which is the environment they flourish in. The rivers also provide outstanding spawning grounds. Combining these factors has produced one of Ontario's top Walleye Lakes.

Dog Lake has lots of Northern Pike and big Northern Pike. Fishing for Northern Pike in Dog Lake is easy even if you are a beginner. There are countless shallow bays along with river mouths where there are large populations of Pike. There are big patches of Muskie Cabbage and in some areas Wild Rice coming out of sand bars and surrounded by weeds right next to a drop off. Out in the open lake there are islands and sunken reefs where Pike like to ambush small Lake Trout coming shallow to feed. These are all the top hotspots for Northern Pike.

Dog Lake is absolutely stuffed with Smallmouth Bass. You catch them everywhere. It's a rocky lake with hundreds of islands and shoals and the perfect habitat for not only producing massive numbers of Smallmouth Bass; it produces big Trophy Smallmouth Bass.

Dog Lake is one of the best Lake Trout lakes in Ontario. The main lake is over 13,000 acres with depths reaching 245 feet deep. It's also a lake with a classic Canadian Shield structure thus there are hundreds of islands, sunken reefs and shoals with deep drop-offs. These are the perfect conditions for Lake Trout.

The Brook Trout, also called the Speckled Trout by residents of Ontario, is the most beautiful trout in the world and the best tasting trout in the world. Of all the trout species available in Ontario, Brook Trout are in the most demand yet can be the hardest to find. They can be a very elusive fish because they migrate up and down streams constantly looking for food and cooler water. A Brook Trout stream can be a very fragile environment and over-fishing can wipe out a stream in days. With this in mind, we only disclose the location of our Brook Trout to our guests.

The Missanabie Region is Ontario's hotspot for Black Bear hunting and our Bear Management Areas (BMAs) are the hottest of them all. We have two BMAs totaling 333 square miles and both are stuffed with huge Black Bears. The reason for this is we are located in a very fertile area that has many lakes and streams and a variety of landscapes, which produce an abundance of food that the bears like such as wild Blueberries, Raspberries and soft grasses. There are also plenty of Beaver and other small game that the bears feed on. To add to this, one of our BMAs borders on the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve and the other is only eight miles away from the reserve. Our BMA is also in close proximity to Missinabie Provincial Park. Having two massive non-hunting regions encircling our BMAs and being located in a remote region where they is very little hunting pressure and very few outfitters means we can provide our guests with an outstanding Black Bear hunt.

The secret to successful Moose hunting in Northern Ontario is to hunt in a region where there are very little or no deer. The reason for this is because deer carry a parasite that is deadly to Moose. In regions where deer populations are high, Moose are rare. With this in mind, we are happy to report that the deer population in our region is almost nonexistent and the Moose population is very high. There are so many Moose in our area that we are allocated multiple adult Bull & Cow tags, which most drive-to or boat-to lodges in Ontario only dream of getting.
