Castlebar Lake Lodge
Fishing trips should have you reeling in trophy fish — not reeling from high prices and hectic travel plans. As the only lodging on the water, Castlebar Lake Lodge is perched on the edge of a remote 3,000-acre lake with an abundance pike, perch, walleye, and brook trout. As a family-owned camp, the lodge is an affordable destination for Canada fishing trips, with lodging starting at $300 per person per week for groups of three or more.
In the fall, hunters can find their trophy among the area’s high concentration of moose. The area’s many logging roads, lakes, and rivers make getting around easier and game retrieval assistance is included with full hunts.
Castlebar Lake Lodge is just a 30-minute drive from Longlac, Ontario, where guests can find a grocery store and bait shop. The camp is located about 39 km. east of Longlac, down four miles of dirt road off of Highway 11. That puts the lodge within a 12-hour drive from Toronto, Detroit, Minneapolis, or Green Bay, or within a 14-hour drive from Chicago or Cleveland.
As the only lodge on a 3,000+ acre lake, Castlebar Lake Lodge offers the fishing experience of a remote fly-in, but with the convenience of a drive-in. The lake is home to walleye, northern pike, brook trout, and perch. Cast a line for a 40+ inch northern pike, who love the lakes’ rock beds, weed beds, and fallen trees. Reel in a tender, flaky perch, which can reach up to two pounds. Head to where the river connects Castlebar Lake with Proctor Lake and drop a line for walleye or brook trout. No matter where you drop a line, it’s easy to see why Castlebar is a prime Canada fishing destination.
Guests can fish from the comfort of their own boats, with overnight docking and charging stations available. Or, rent one of Castlebar’s 14-foot or 16-foot aluminum boats with 9.9 motors.
After hauling in that catch, guests can clean and freeze the fish in Castlebar’s screened-in cleaning station. The cleaning station is prepped with a sink and a large, table-sized cutting board. Guests have access to a walk-in cooler, with ice included at no extra cost.
Strap on your hunting boots and step into the ideal moose habitat. Located in central Ontario, Castlebar Lake Lodge is surrounded by both forests and clear cuts. The many lakes, rivers, and marshes are home to many aquatic plants that moose favor. In Unit 19, a trophy bull moose rack can easily reach 50 to 60 inches. Meanwhile, cow and calf tags create an affordable way to fill a freezer with fresh game. As an Ontario Moose hunting outfitter offering guided hunts, Castlebar Lake Lodge provides easy access to a region with a high concentration of moose.
The region’s many logging roads allow hunters to ride and hike in with ease. Or, travel by boat to reach wooded shores where moose commonly stop to graze and drink. When not chasing that trophy game, hunters have access to the 3,000+ acre Castlebar Lake for perch, pike, walleye, and brook trout.
At the end of the day, retreat into a warm and dry cabin equipped with a full bathroom and kitchen. Skip the long wait for the showers — there’s no shared bathhouse here. Castlebar’s rustic cabins feature sunrooms with a view of the lake, a large kitchen to eat or play cards together, and overnight generator-provided electricity. Bunks range in size from accommodating groups of four to parties of up to ten.
