The primary fish available at Birch Lake Lodge are walleye, northern pike and lake trout.
At the lodge we have a policy of catch and release, and encourage all our guests to release trophy fish safely back into the lake. This ensures that fishing on Birch Lake remains of high quality for years to come.
For a northern ontario adventure you’ll never forget plan your next remote wilderness fishing vacation with us!
Birch Lake, in Northwestern Ontario, is located approximately 65 miles northeast of Ear Falls, Ontario. In size, it is close to 35 miles long, with numerous creeks and streams flowing into it. The lake is 150 feet at its deepest part; it has a lot of varied structure, which gives excellent habit to the species of fish which are plentiful in the lake: shallow marsh areas, where Northern love to hang out in the spring, rocky bottom areas which Walleye prefer, and very deep cold water where large Lake Trout thrive.
In the heat of July and August, the many sandy beaches invite you to jump in and cool off. And at the end of the day, return to camp, cook your fresh catch over a wood fire in the Fish Fry Pit. Then, just before bed, stroll to the point and enjoy the vista of a magnificent sunset.
