The Boats

Eagle Lake Sportsmen's Lodge Boats

Fishing is our passion too so we get that the boats need to be comfortable for your days out on the water. Our camp boats are 16 and 17 1/2 ft. aluminium boats. We offer a wide range of equipment rentals and have 20 and 40 HP Yamaha motors. Upgrade to the Lund Outfitter with pedestal seats, raised flat non-skid floor, fish locator and more or bring your own boat, as we have a sheltered bay with private slips and electrical hook-ups available.

With the portage to Clearwater Lake and the Trout Holes nearby, Lake Trout fishing is easy to get to. Make sure you bring a heavy action rod and a good level wind reel with 15-20lb test. You'll need every bit of it if you hook into a nice Laker...

Smallmouth Bass will surprise you with their strength and speed! Topwaters, spinners, even a crawler on a jighead are too tempting for the mighty bronzebacks.

Large Walleye

Eagle Lakes' healthy population of Walleyes make getting those eater-size for shorelunch and dinner easy. But don't stop there - there is also the chance at that once-in-a-lifetime fish for catch, photo, and release!

Northern's of all sizes can be found in just about any location on Eagle. Whether you are trying to hook an eater or trophy size fish, make sure you are holding on tight to your pole.

Catching a Muskie sometimes only happens once in a lifetime. And you probably won't catch a Muskie if you don't try - these majestic fish get big by being smart. There are only a few anglers who dare to take on the battle but hookin’ one is so sweet!

Smallmouth Bass on Eagle Lake

We also have portage boats on other area Canadian fishing lakes like Buzzard, Crabclaw (accessible from Eagle Lake by boat ride and short walk,and Teqqau, and we can take you on a four-wheel drive adventure other lakes making a trip you'll never forget. For the adventurous there are portages to other lakes connected to Eagle, such as One Mile, Clearwater, and Bass lakes.

Fly-outs are also available by previous arrangement, right from our dock.
