Fishing Ontario

Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, or Muskie which ever you prefer. They are what Canadian Wilderness Fishing is all about. Maynard Lake provides some of the best action in Northwestern Ontario. The potential for a trophy is there EVERY TIME you throw your line in the water!

Accessible only by float plane, Maynard Lake Lodge is located on a prime location on the renowned English River System, 80 KM (50 miles) Northeast of Kenora, Ontario, Canada. This deluxe fishing lodge is the only one on the 8000 acre lake providing a remote fishing experience for up to thirty two guests on truly unspoiled waters. Maynard Lake has incredible structure with plenty of points, shoals, saddles and sunken islands and with Ten miles of accessible spirited flowing river, you can successfully fish by casting, trolling, drifting or still fishing. The choice is yours.

Fishing Lodge

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 experienced anglers and novices alike will experience incredible fishing, regardless of the time of year. Most do fine with artificial lures - jigs, spoons, spinners and crank bait. Live bait (minnows, leeches and crawlers) 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.
At Maynard Lake, we practice 'Catch & Release' fishing. You may eat as much fish as you like during your stay, but take no limits home. This management strategy has made for fantastic fishing and will ensure large, strong fish populations for years to come.


A day on the Lake
A knock on your door and a pot of hot coffee waking you up with a smile. Breakfast is in a half an hour. After a hearty breakfast, your boat will be waiting for you at the dock, cleaned, fueled and ready to go. Our friendly dock staff will be there to provide you with day coolers, ice, beverages, fishing spots, live bait and to see you off for your day of fishing. If you choose to take one of our guides, he will be at the dock with your boat fully stocked and ready to go when you are.
Guides are not mandatory, but we do recommend taking one for at least the first day of your trip to familiarize yourself with the Lake and how it likes to be fished. Everyone who taken one of our guides agrees it is money well spent.

As noon approaches and your wrist is sore from catching fish, you can join Josh and his crew at one of our beautiful shore lunch locations where you can relax while they prepare a gourmet shore lunch for you. Nothing tastes better than walleye, fresh from the lake, coated in Maynard Lake's Special Batter and cooked to perfection, served up with homemade tartar sauce, home baked beans and a variety of fresh salads. And "don't forget the spuds!", cooked over an open fire and seasoned with our secret spice.


After a morning of slaying walleyes and a phenomenal shore lunch, it's time to get out the big tackle and try to tame a few "water wolves" in the afternoon sun. Northerns over 40" are very common. At the end of the afternoon, when you return to the dock, our staff will be waiting to clean, fuel and organize your boat while you prepare yourself for an "ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT" gourmet dinner. Our food is second to none. Afterwards you are welcome to head out for more action, relax in our cozy games room or just sit on your deck to enjoy a beautiful Maynard Lake sunset. After a full day on the lake, a good night's rest comes real easy in our comfortable beds.
